SQLDataAdapter and  computed SQLColumn

Hi,

I have the following issue:

I have a SQL-Server 2000
I have a Table with a computed column (interestValue which calculates interestRate * value)
I'm using databinding on a winform
I'm using the sqlDataAdapter with CommandBuilder

I want to add a new row to the datatable
I want to save these row to the database

My problem is:

I cannot save this row to the database because the sqldataadapter says that computed columns are not updateable. That's quite correct. How can I tell my datatable that he sould not save/change my computed column?

I think the failure is that, when I add a new row to the datatable, the computed table gets a default value.

Please help
Thanks

Sascha

If you're using the CommandBuilder feature,  you must give it an altered SelectCommand that doesn't contain that field so that the CommandBuilder will create the insert, update, and delete commands without that field.   Or, you could just edit the SQL commands by hand...

It'd look something like this:

' return all columns
cmd.SelectCommand.CommandText = "Select * from SomeTable"
da.Fill(SomeDataTable)

' a prototype select statement with the computed column missing
cmd.SelectCommand.CommandText = "Select Larry, Moe, Curly from SomeTable"
' create the Insert, Update and Delete commands for me...
SomeCommandBuilder.RefreshSchema()

da.Update(SomeDataTable)

Thanks for your answer. How can i programmatically figure out, if a column is computed. the datacolumn does not have such a property.

just wondering...

Try adding the following to the DataAdapter prior to the fill()

DataAdapter.MissingSchemaAction = MissingSchemaAction.AddWithKey

Then check the DataColumn's Expression property

... it *might* show the computed column's "formula"....
