The data project contains many SQL files that represent the data items in the database. This tutorial looks at how to edit these SQL files and save the changes to the data project.
- [Voiceover] This data project contains all the items…that I imported from my Northwind database.…It contains a bunch of SQL files…that represent the data items inside the database.…I can edit these items in the project.…For instance, I can find this Vendors tables,…this vendors.sql file.…Double-click on it to open the Designer,…and over here I will change and add a primary key.…I didn't add a primary key when I made it…in the original database.…One check the Allow Nulls,…and then to make it a primary key,…I right-click on this row and choose Set Primary Key.…
Now my file is changed.…I can see the asterisk here in the tab.…That means it has some changes…that haven't been persisted yet.…I'll close this file and I'll get prompted…to save my changes.…The key thing to understand here…is I've only changed the SQL file.…This doesn't affect the original Northwind's database.…It doesn't affect any of our other deployments…of the Northwind database.…That won't happen until I take this project…and deploy it to those databases.…
