Dataset Merge / getchanges just adding records?

I'm using the following subroutine. The two different XML files are
identical with the exception of three additional records in the second
one. One has 450 records, and the other has 453. After merging, I get
903 records. I guess what I expected was 3 records; just the
differences in the two.
The two tables have the exact same structure, etc....

So am I misinterpreting how to do this? It seems to me that the merge
should produce only three new records!

 Private Sub btnStart_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles btnStart.Click
        Dim dsOld As DataSet = New DataSet
        Dim dsCurr As DataSet = New DataSet
        Dim dsTemp As DataSet = New DataSet
        Dim dsChanges As DataSet = New DataSet
        dsTemp.DataSetName = "SERVERINFO"
        dsChanges.DataSetName = "SERVERINFO"

        dsOld.ReadXml("c:\dsOld.xml", XmlReadMode.ReadSchema)

        dsCurr.ReadXml("c:\dsCurr.xml", XmlReadMode.ReadSchema)


        dsTemp.WriteXml("c:\dsTemp.xml", XmlWriteMode.DiffGram)

        dsChanges = dsTemp.GetChanges()

        dsChanges.WriteXml("c:\dsChanges.xml", XmlWriteMode.DiffGram)

    End Sub

The merge function is used to merge in new changes.

Maybe you can try changing the DataRowState of the 2nd dataset before
Hope this helps.

eliminate records with checkmark in column
This may be easy, I don't know, I'm a beginner in Access. I have a list of inventory, some of which is inactive. These have a checkmark in a yes/no column.

Catching record before it saves?
I've got a small 3-user database. The GUI is Access 2K and the data is in an MS SQL 2005 back-end. Today I noticed some NULL records being created in the database by the same user. In talking to the user I found out that she would go to a new record and then use the built-in Access "Find" (binoculars button on the toolbar) to look for records. So I know that what is happening is that she's creating the new record and then the Find operation is moving off of that record thereby saving it. My question is how to still let them have the built-in Find utility but keep them fr...

mail merge labels duplicating
I need some help. I am using word 2008 and excel data to create a label mail merge. I create the labels. On label page 1, the labels sequence correctly (Jane, Steve, Susan, Mike, Laura, Joe, etc.), but on label page 2 the labels sequence Steve, Susan, Mike, Laura, Joe, etc. On label page 3 the labels sequence Susan, Mike, Laura, Joe, etc. Each page label 1 starts with the next record and cycles through the data. As a result to get the correct label pages I would have to print pages 1, 31, and 61 rather than pages 1-3 with all of the labels appearing just one time. There is no <nex...

Auto merging Excel attachments
Hi I'm not even sure this is entirely an Excel question but anyway...every day I get emailed an Excel attachment of new data that I'm then to add to a master worksheet of all the previous emailed data. Up until now I have been opening the attachment, copying the contents and pasting into the master worksheet. Is there any way I can auto extract the contents of the attachment and consolidate into one spreadsheet, so it becomes an automated update of the master spreadsheet? Kind of like parsing an email's text into a spreadsheet, but extracting the contents of the attachment, rat...

SSRS Linking Dataset
I have converted some reports in Access to SQL 2008 Reporting Services. However, some of the reports have subreports in them and they look fine in design but when I try to run the report previewing it from VS 2008 I get the main report but not the subreport. Apparently, the subreport is not tied to a Dataset even though the dataset shows up in the Report Data section on left side of VStudio. I cannot find anywhere in proerties to attach a dataset to the subreport. Also, how do I "link" the subreport to the main report to get only the correct records in the subrepo...

Create a button to edit and save new record
Hi there I would like to create a button for a form that would allow me to edit a record, make changes, and save it as a new record. I don't want to save a record and have it overwrite earlier information. How will I create this button? Thank you in advance The best way would be to copy the existing record into a new record and then edit the copy. I wonder why you need to do this. It indicates to me that you ***might*** have design problems in your table structure if you need to duplicate most (or many) of the fields in one record in the next record. Here is an ...

Merged Cells
I want to create a spreadsheet where the first two columns (A & B) are merged in every row EXCEPT the first row. I want the two columns separate in the first row. The best I came up with was to merge the columns in rows 2 - 999 (with the help of a macro). But I have two complaints about this method. My first complaint is that Excel "thinks" that my spreadsheet has 1,000 rows, although I only have data in about 160 rows right now. My second complaint is that if I insert a row, the cells on the new row are not merged. It is almost as though I really want to split the "A&...

Adding a project reference in VC++ 6
How does one add a reference to a Windows DLL project from a Windows Console Application? If you are talking about unmanaged code, there is nothing like a reference to a DLL. You will include the include files in your source and link against the library provided by DLL. There is another option of using a DLL functions at run time (no linking) but I am certain you are not talking about that. There is another option of using a COM server in your project. There you can import the type library in your project. Is that what you want? Is your project unmanaged by any chance? --------- Ajay K...

Creating typed dataset from an industry standard schema

I have run the schema through XML Spy and validated it with no errors, but when attempting to generate a dataset, I keeping getting a 'undefined data type' error.

Can't see why error occurs when adding records?
Hi, The code below generates an "Unexpected error from external database driver (10019)." for the line TSet.m_S12=qsa[11]-qs[11]; I am using Clipper database files (dbf) through ODBC. The values are integers just like in the other 3 lines. If I add qsa[11]+qs[11] there is no problem. The error happens only when I subtract and only for a few of the records from which qs[11] is assigned. These records are also no different from the other records in that dbf. qsa[11] and qs[11] are both okay integers by themselves, nothing unusual about them. I just cannot see why the error oc...

xml and dataset
I want to take a dataset and save the data as an xml document. I know how to do this, but I need the xml to be formatted in a certain way. What are my options?

Because I do not know what you are reformating it is difficult to say more. Cor...

Adding a group header in Access 2002

I have successfully added a group header using the Sorting and Grouping dialogue box, but I cannot see where to set the value for the group header or how to keep it from repeating on subsequent pages.

How do I read an XmlDocument object into a dataset???
I need to read an in-memory instance of a loaded XmlDocument into a referenced DataSet. What's the best way to do this? I've tried "myDataSet.ReadXml(myXmlDocument)" but it won't compile. I get a compile error because the XmlDocument type isn't accepted by the ReadXml() method. I need to figure this out! Thanks, ~A~ Blah - nevermind.
