Working with the Head First eBook. Through Visual Studio, I have completed the tables for a contacts database. Using MS SQL Compact 2010 3.5 SP2.https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resi...F3F75A51A!1051 Regrettably, Last Call, a datetime entry is not accepted. A two second video and some images are uploaded to Microsoft Sky Drive. Followed the eBook lesson and the table appears to be identical. Guidance sought
Sorry you dont seem to have explained the problem too well, is it the date time column thats causing trouble and if so is it that your code is not updating the problem, if so you need to use SQL to convert the data to the relevent type first,
Much thanks for the timely reply. My apologies as I write as one who has just started to learn SQL. My specific question is: What causes the problem that leads to the error:
No row was updated
The data in row 1 was not committed
error source mscorlib
error message the path is not of a legal form
correct the errors and press escape or cancel
Additionally, what must one do to correct the problem. Since I am following a book I did not expect an error.
Much thanks for your reply. Please know that the error message no longer appears without intervention. In advancing through the lesson I now find a different issue. The new topic is Adding database driven controls. The exercise requires that the database be accessed through Visual Studio, the Windows database form be dragged onto the IDE, and the database be dragged onto the Form. Not clear on how to get the form onto the IDE... tried to drag it with no success.
