I have this snippet of LINQ code to add a record to my table
protected void cmd_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   AddressTbl AddressTbl = new AddressTbl();
  AddressTbl.Bsc_CTL_NO = Convert.ToInt32(txtBSC_NO_Text);
  AddressTbl.EmpTableType = intEmpTableType;
  AddressTbl.Address_Desc = txt Address_Desc.Text;




MyTelephoneDataContext.AddressTbls.InsertOnSubmit(AddressTbl);
MyTelephoneDataContext.SubmitChanges();

viewDataOnGrid();
}

I need to prevent from adding a duplicate records.
The combination of two columns (AddressTbl.Bsc_CTL_NO and AddressTbl.EmpTableType ) should be unique.
How could I do such a thing ?
Please help.

You can simply add that as a constraint in the DB ( a unique key constraint / or a composite primary key).

Then the insert to the DB fails with PK error, you can capture that and throw the same to the user.
