  1. Re: For those interested in keeping VB.Net a first class .Net language.

    I'm curious about that. What would be a feature that could be expressed in symbols but not in words? I honestly can't think of anything.
  2. Re: why do I use SQL Server Management Studio to update a row of a table in SQL Serve

    I think the date issue is a distraction. Dong absolutely should be taking good advice on how to express dates, but it's not the cause of that error.

    The error is being thrown because a string or...
  3. Re: For those interested in keeping VB.Net a first class .Net language.

    I disagree. Speaking as an ex VB6 programmer, I doubt I'd have jumped straight from 6 to C#, I'd probably have headed off in some other direction. 6 to .Net to C# felt like a natural progression to...
  4. Re: For those interested in keeping VB.Net a first class .Net language.

    Realistically , I think you're likely to get even less traction that the VB6 community did.

    Microsoft didn't really have a choice about having it continue to work due to it sitting behind office...
  5. Re: why do I use SQL Server Management Studio to update a row of a table in SQL Serve

    When inserting/updating dates via sql, best practice is to explicitly convert the string to a date using a format. The formats can be found here. That said, assuming the default format as JM has...
  6. Re: For those interested in keeping VB.Net a first class .Net language.

    There is literally (and I feel I'm using that word entirely accurately) nothing you could follow those words with that would not be disrespectful to the members of this forum. It's them you're...

    So despite never previously having been a member or supporter of this forum, you started a similar thread here. I told you in that thread that we were not your soapbox but we would be happy to...

    You're in SQL Server aren't you. If so I 'm pretty sure you just right click the foreign key in the Object Browser, select Modify and you should see some checkbox options. (Unfortunately I don't...

    Re: Foreign keys

    I think JM was referring to SQL Server and it doesn't offer those options (though I've often thought it should)

    That does highlight another common misunderstanding that comes up a lot though. It...

    Re: Foreign keys

    Hey, that's fighting talk round our way. Pudemup, pudemuuup!

    Yes, that's exactly what you're looking for.

    The answer, of course, is that you don't unless you can possibly help it. And any...

    Erm, I'm not sure we deserve to be revered:eek:. But, yeah, foreign keys are a good thing.
  20. Re: SQL Server not increasing by 1 but by 100

  21. Re: SQL Server not increasing by 1 but by 100

    Yeah, that's exactly pattern I use by default. I might perhaps favour a natural key over a surrogate integer but it's very situational. The important bit is just having a primary key.

    That's...
  22. Re: SQL Server not increasing by 1 but by 100

    We're programmers. It goes with the territory.:bigyello: I can certainly understand why seeing that phenomenon would give one pause for thought, though and it's always better to ask than brush...
  23. Re: SQL Server not increasing by 1 but by 100

    Personally I would say "why do you care?" Identity columns are meant to be underlying, invisible, control values; a surrogate key and nothing more. The DBMS needs to manage them but they should...
