Hello,

I need to figure how the write the following using linq to entities.  I have a table that references itself, and the syntax is over my head!

Here is the SQL of exactly what I need to run
select pc.*
from projects p
	join projectReferences pr on p.projectGuid=pr.projectGuid
	join projectContent pc on pr.referenceProjectID=pc.projectID
where p.projectID = 1234

Open in new window


The table projectReferences here is what is confusing me, it's not part of my EF model, since there is simply a navigation property.

Any Ideas?

Figured this one out using the following linq.  This is using a navigate propoperty "IsReferencedBy" that I created.

(from p in DB.projects
         from pc in DB.projectContents
         where pc.project.isReferencedBy.Any(r => r.projectID == p.projectID
                        && p.projectID == 1234)

Open in new window
