Error : Column 'Employee_Key' does not belong to table Employee.

Hi,

I am trying to popluate a datarow (please the attached code) with values from Active Directory and i get the error 'Column 'Employee_Key' does not belong to table Employee' on line  dr["Employee_Key"] = dey.Properties["title"].Value ?? string.Empty;

All i am trying to do is load a schema of the Employee table from the database and apply it to dt (datatable) and then loop through all the rows of Active Directory and built a table with that data.

however when i create a new row and try to assign values i get the above error

Please, could you help me figure out why i am getting this error... I searched in google but of no avail :'( I'm on a dead end :((









public DataTable GetData(Entities.Config.EtlConfig config)
        {
            var s = new SqlLoader();
            var dt = s.GetSchemaTable(config.SqlTableToLoad);
            string setdate = DateTime.Now.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm:ss");
            dt.TableName = "Employee";

            try
            {
                DirectoryEntry de = GetDirectoryEntry();
                DirectorySearcher ds = new DirectorySearcher(de);
                SearchResultCollection results = ds.FindAll();
                foreach (SearchResult result in results)
                {
                    DirectoryEntry dey = GetDirectoryEntry();

                    DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();

                    dr["Employee_Key"] = dey.Properties["title"].Value ?? string.Empty;

                    dr["Email_Address"] = dey.Properties["mail"];
                    dr["Business_Unit"] = dey.Properties["department"];
                    dr["Supervisor_Full_Name"] = dey.Properties["manager"];
                    dr["Row_Update_Date"] = setdate;
                    dr["Source"] = config.Source;

>>>i get the error 'Column 'Employee_Key' does not belong to table Employee'

This might sound obvious but does the table Employee have a column (field) called Employee_Key ?  (Check the spelling)

mrichmonCommented:
I think that it is not seeing that as a column name.  Before you try accessing the column try this:

foreach(DataColumn column in dt.Columns.)
{
      Response.Write(column.ColumnName);
}

Then see what you get...

This may or may not have any relevance to your error (though I'm thinking it probably does), but where is variable _dbmanager initialized, if it is at all? If it's not done properly, stuff like this can happen. May also want to check out your SqlLoader definition (unless I'm just not seeing it in the MSDN for some reason).
Definitely try mrichmon's code, and poste the results (if any) unless they lead you to a direct conclusion and you no longer need our assistance :P

Hi,

Thank you for your response.. here is what i get when i do foreach loop throught dt.columns

 string ColumnValues = "";
            foreach(DataColumn column in dt.Columns)
            {
                ColumnValues += column.ColumnName + "\n";
            }

ColumnName
ColumnOrdinal
ColumnSize
NumericPrecision
NumericScale
IsUnique
IsKey
BaseServerName
BaseCatalogName
BaseColumnName
BaseSchemaName
BaseTableName
DataType
AllowDBNull
ProviderType
IsAliased
IsExpression
IsIdentity
IsAutoIncrement
IsRowVersion
IsHidden
IsLong
IsReadOnly
ProviderSpecificDataType
DataTypeName
XmlSchemaCollectionDatabase
XmlSchemaCollectionOwningSchema
XmlSchemaCollectionName
UdtAssemblyQualifiedName
NonVersionedProviderType
IsColumnSet

So its obvious that column names are not being returned :((

What is going on here? Why is it not returning the column name?

It sounds like you are getting generic information - not your actual table...

How can i get information from the actual table?

AndyAinscowCommented:
Looking at GetSchemaTable in the help files then that is what should be returned.

2oothAuthor Commented:
Ok.. Now i am truly baffled.....


This is what happens when i loop through the datarows instead of the dataColumns

           string rowValues = "";
            foreach (DataRow dr in dt.Rows)
            {
                rowValues += dr["ColumnName"].ToString() + "\n";
            }


Employee_Key
Address_City
Address_Line_1
Address_Line_2
Address_State
Birth_Date
Business_Unit
Country
Email_Address
Employee_Job_Cd
Employee_Job_Desc
Employee_Name
Employment_Status_Cd
Gender
Hire_Date
Holding_Period_Days
Is_Terminated
Marital_Status_Cd
Employee_Phone_Number
SSN
Supervisor_Name
Supervisor_Phone_Number
Terminate_Date
Zip_Code
Employee_Full_Name
Supervisor_Full_Name
Supervisor_Id
Primary_Region_Cd
Manual_Select_Approval_Level
Row_Update_Date
Source
Supervisor_Email_Address

The schema is how the table (or rather fields in it) are defined, that is what you are working on here.

Resolved by using

                SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(ConfigManager.DbConnection());
                SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Select top 0 * from " + sqlTable, conn);
                SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter();
                da.SelectCommand = cmd;
                da.Fill(table);
                conn.Close();
