Assigning foreign keys in code.

I am quite new, and though I have purchased and viewed several videos, I cannot figure out the answer to this embarrasingly simple data problem.  I have changed the names of the 2 tables and fields for ease.  This is all for a button click event:

SqlDataSource1.InsertCommand = "INSERT INTO [orders] ([o_detail1], [o_detail2]) VALUES (@o_detail1, @o_detail2)";

SqlDataSource1.InsertParameters.Add("o_detail1", textbox1.text);SqlDataSource1.InsertParameters.Add("o_detail2", textbox2.text);


// The above code works fine.  I've done this sort of thing several times.

// The above code also has a primary key I didn't mention because it is automatically incremented/created somehow by VWD.

// I called that primary key column OrderID

// Then I want to do this SAME code below for a different table,the only difference being, I want it to have a foreign key relating back to the OrderID primary key.

SqlDataSource2.InsertCommand = "INSERT INTO [productname] ([pn_detail1], [pn_detail2], [OrderID]) VALUES (@pn_detail1, @pn_detail2, @OrderID)";

SqlDataSource2.InsertParameters.Add("pn_detail1", textbox3.text);

SqlDataSource2.InsertParameters.Add("pn_detail2", textbox4.text);

SqlDataSource2.InsertParameters.Add("Order_ID", ... ???????

// I don't understand how to make the foreign key here called Order_ID assume the value of the automatically incrementing Primary Key called OrderID from the table called Orders!  Otherwise everything would be fine.

If you want to insert into two tables, I suggest you to create a stored procedure with all your fields as parameters. In this stored procedure you will do something like:


   insert into FirstTable ...

   set @NewOrder = scope_identity()

  insert into OrderDetails ...


In SQL Server 2005 and up you can wrap it in TRY/CATCH block. I posted examples of my SPs here before using this technique.

Attempt to over-write foreign key column "Code" where table A has 3 foreign keys to table X
Generating from CDM to Logical. PD This is a weird one - 4 tables in my model have more than one foreign key reference to table COROrg. By default a foreign ket to COROrg generates as COROrgKy. I have renamed the other foreign keys appropriately - e.g. COROrgKyEmpGrp. After the rename when I generate from CDM to Logical everything's fine for all but on of the foreign key columns (i.e. the new name/code are maintained in all but one).

Table design question (to foreign key or not to foreign key)
Our application is a message board and is full of messages, threads, and forums. A message is an individual entry (like the one I'm typing now ;)).

SQL triggers .net code?
Is it possible to call .net code from an sql trigger?
