How to add a storage column?

Post by francis » Fri 09 Nov 2018 17:38

I am using model first with entity developer 6.3.606

The table has been modified and there appears to be no way to manually add a storage column in the model. All I am presented with are previously existing columns.

I'd love to post an screenshot but that is apparently not possible with this forum software.

Please specify the name of your model: is it Devart Entity Model (*.edml)?

If so, open your *.edml, navigate to Tools > Entity Developer > Model Explorer, expand the *.Store node and go to your Table to edit its columns manually.

OR right click diagram surface > Update From Database to update the storage part of your model basing on the database table.

If this doesn't help, you can send us your screenshot via contact form.

It's a EF6 edml file.

That did it--thanks!
