AdventureWorks DB - SQL Datasource Control and seeing the 'schema'

I'm trying to load the 'contacts' table from SQL2005 AdventureWorks database with a SQL Datasource control and when i try to use the "Configure Data Source" wizard i select the table and i get the following error:

 "Invalid object name: 'Contact'."

I think i know the reason for the error but i don't know how to fix it.  What i think is happening is SQL 2005 makes use of 'schemas' to organize tables (similar to namespaces) so the object 'Contact' is actually 'Person.Contact'.  However the "Configure Data Source" wizard does not seem to display schema names so in the wizard it appears as 'Contact'. 

2 questions:  How can i configure the wizard to view schemas and make it work?  Also how would i reference this programmatically in an sql query?

 Ok i've figured out when using custom schemas on a table (like AdventureWorks does) in SQL you just need to prepend the schema to the table name.

for example change this:

 SELECT * FROM Contact

 to this

SELECT * FROM Person.Contact


Simple enough however what about when using the "Configure Data Source" control tool wizard?  It doesn't have any options to select a schema nor does it even display the schema.  I've managed to get around the issue by modifying the script that the wizard generates but surely there must be a better way....

I got the same issue while trying to connect AdventureWorks database. And I post this only because one thing is comming to mind:

 There's communication between SQL Server and Visual Studio development teams, isn't there? .... I don't guess so :(

replication between one 'up' db and one 'down' db
Hi, All: We have primary db and secondary db (both of them are running ASE 11.9.2), and they are residing on two different servers. A replications server is set up from primary to secondary db(which is set up as warm standby). Is it possible to keep the replication going while the secondary db is set as 'unavailable (or down)' so that no user would be able to access the secondary db? The DBAs tried to set the secondary db as 'dbo only', but it's still available to the users (just no accces). If the SQL interface file on client machine has multiple query lines ...

Visual Studio randomly changing codebehind subtypes from 'ASPXCodebehind' to 'Code'
I've got a weird issue going on in my .vbproj files.  Every couple of days, I go to check in to Source Control, and all of the project files in my solution are listed as having changed.  When I diff them to see what has changed, I see that the 'subtype' element for all of my codebehind files has been changed from ASPXCodebehind to Code.  If I allow it to go into source control, then several days later the same thing will happen, but Visual Studio will have changed all of them back to ASPXCodebehind.  It's a real nuisance! Does anyone have any idea what is causing ...

Cast from type ''''DBNull'''' to type ''''String'''' is not valid.
How do I avoid getting this error: Cast from type ''''DBNull'''' to type ''''String'''' is not valid. I am trying to get values from the database into a form for updating using a Datareader, SQL is set to allow nulls for certain fields as they are not required but the only way I can get the form to display is by adding a space in SQL. Is there another way around this? Check if it is equal to DBNull.Value first and if it is, don't do the cast.Stanley Tan theSpoke Blog Where in the code does it need to go?
