SET IDENTITY_INSERT for SQL CE and SQL ME
Posted on 2007-09-30
I have Product table in SQL Server 2005 with Primary key ProductID. This is column with Identity set so the values for this column is auto-generated. I also have Orders table has a key that is foreign key to table Products. Now my dev environment has SQL ME whereas the deployment will be done on SQL CE.
Now I have a requirement where we want to synchronize the master tables from SQL Server with the device. For this we want to have the same identity values on the device. When I try to issue SET IDENTITY_INSERT Products ON on SQL ME it does not work. Is there any way I can set the identity ON on the SQL Mobile Edition?
Also another question I have is: Is SET IDENTITY_INSERT supported on SQL Compact Edition?
