Description change in table is not tracked

Post by picrap » Thu 01 Dec 2011 13:24

Hi,

when I update the model from the database, the description change in table does not seem to be kept, so at the next change the same description change is shown again.

Thanks for help,
Pascal.

Please refer to http://www.devart.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=22733. Update Model From Database Wizard erases the description in SSDL if there is no this description in the database.

Again, this would be very useful if only actual atomic changes were recorded. Your product is good, quite efficient, but this problem is a major pain in the ... (where I think :o).

So please consider adding a fine-grained update analysis. When people use update from database, this is often because the database exists and is usually huge. Getting a smarter update engine would save a lot of user time.

Thanks!

Update Model From Database Wizard checks for a strict correspondence between database and the SSDL part of your model. This is correct behaviour and it should be applied to descriptions as well.

You can add description in CSDL - this will not make update wizard to mark column (and its table) as changed.
