  1. In Topic: Using parameters is MS SQL.

    Posted 31 Jul 2015

    Oh god no.

    Understand that parameter values are values. They're not treated as SQL "code". They're not identifiers. They're not tokens to be string-replaced. You can only use them for values, values, and...values. Not identifiers.

    What problem are you trying to solve? Are you expecting your database and your table names to be changed? The database name thing is easy to handle in configuration; you have an Initial Catalog parameter of a connection string. Tables...if you're trying to build a query engine for unknown tables, you're going to have to use string replacement. But if you know the structure of your tables, you can enforce not changing the names yourself.
  2. In Topic: Using parameters is MS SQL.

    Posted 31 Jul 2015

    You can't parameterize tables or fields. Parameters aren't string replacements. They represent values. Identifiers aren't values, therefore they can't be represented by parameters.

    Sorry, but the only valid parameter in your query is @FieldID.
  3. In Topic: StackOverflow Exception when reading from SQL Database

    Posted 31 Jul 2015

    There's not much overhead in creating a new connection when you need it vs. re-opening and re-closing the same one; most applications wouldn't know the difference. With that in mind, the using block denotes the lifespan of the connection, and it closes it for you. That's why I prefer to use it.

    Glad you found it! I certainly couldn't think of any good reason that there would be a Stack Overflow inside System.Data :P
  5. In Topic: Problems converting string to MD5

    Posted 30 Jul 2015



    Seriously though, I didn't even realize Guid had a format parameter in its ToString().
