I've setup a project using a Entity model built from scratch and added a SQLCE database as the backend.  Everything seems fine except for when I call  "entity.SaveChanges();"    I have set this in a loop hoping to create 10 records and nothing happens.   How else would I insert/update a SQLCE database using Entity Framework 4?    Thnaks

using (ModelContainer entity = new ModelContainer())
{
 Repository repository = new Repository
{
ID = Guid.NewGuid(), created = DateTime.Now, source = "This is a source document" + i, deleted = false, filename = "Test" + i + ".pdf"
};

entity.Repositories.AddObject(repository);
entity.SaveChanges();
}

Hi Brian;

Well I think you may have an issue with which database the system is using, the one you told where it is and the one the system copies to the debug directory and overwrites? see this artical :

He point out two other links which you should look at in the paragraph :

Check Josh's blog post ".NET Frustrations" and Tim's post, Where is your SQL Server CE Database?, for more details.
