Hi, I am trying to use Blinq tool to create a website for AdventureWorks database to insert, update and delete records in any tables. As per instructions, I have downloaded May 2006 CPT and installed the utility. I see a virtual directory and website created;
but nothing more!
My assumption is Blinq tool creates a website (autogenerates web forms) to edit tables. Am I wrong or missed something?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Sam, can you send a few details? You say a website was created- were there webpages in the website? Did you see any error messages when Blinq ran?

Thanks for responding.. Yes the website was created with no errrors. I ran the command line utility. The default page opened up in IE.

---- Then a Master page template is created, with Root listed in left margin..
---- Project compiles and shows me Default.aspx file (blank page with Master template)
Please let me know what I need to do to auto-generate web forms for all tables.
Thank you again.

Sam, does your database have primary keys on each table? Blinq only creates pages for tables that have at least one primary key field.

I am using AdventureWorks sample database, I believe each table has a PK. I didnot check each one of those. I remember not selecting some tables because they do not have PKs.

If your tables have fields and primary keys, I'm not sure why it's not working. AdventureWorks was one of the databases I did my testing against, so it's probably not the database.
Try running the tool again and see if you get an error message or something. I'm stumped...

I created a sample DB with 2 tables, with PKs. I ran the tool again and now it works!
I will be implementing on DEV & later Integration database soon, hopefully things will go smoothly for Admin site.
Thanks again! Sam[Yes]
