Bugs/Omissions in Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals


I’m using Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals and have spotted a couple of niggles with it.

1) If you rename a foreign key field, the schema compare fails to recognize that it needs to update the foreign key constraint. Instead it creates a new one and leaves the old one in place and unchanged, causing an error.

2) Extended properties are behaving strangely. It seems to be dumping them all into a file called “ScriptsIgnoredOnImport.sql”, appending it on to any entry it left in that file last time it ran. As far as I can tell you need to manually copy the extended property creation lines out of this file and into the individual table SQL scripts in the project. Irritating.
