SQL GUID in vb.net problem
I have an insert query that will input some new document information and will be assigned (by SQL server) a GUID for each one. Well I have to referance these with another table. The problem is I have no idea how to get the id or handle it with vb.net? Anyone have experiance with this? I am using a tableadapter in VS 2005 and I have seen tell about the @@identity but I can't seem to figure out how to get it to work right. Any idea guys?
Thanks in advance
The sample code is in C#, but you should get the idea.
Please post questions to the forums, where others may benefit.
I do not offer free assistance by e-mail. Thank you!
Note - It's quite safe to generate GUID's from the client - It's not safe to generate identities from the client though. With identities you need to use @@Identity, SCOPE_IDENTITY() or IDENT_CURRENT() - SCOPE_IDENTITY() is the safest method to return the id created by your insert statement. These methods are not for GUIDs.
If you are using uniqueidendifier/GUID you can generate these from the client in VB.NET and specify them in the insert statement - you generate guids using the following code:
Dim myGuid As Guid = Guid.NewGuid
Hope this helps,
