Export / Import using Sync and SqlCompact RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi !

    I already have a WinFormApp that uses a "SqlCompact 3.5 SP1".
    1- Can I use Sync framework to implement a feature to "Export / Import to a SDF File"?


    Taking the "Northwind.Sdf" as a database sample, I want Export and Import my Orders and OrdersDetails to another SDF File.
    2- Is it possible using Sync Framework?


    Thanks in advance for any tip!

    Regards,
    Andre.

  • Hi,

    If your orders and ordersDetails tables are in a SQL Server or SQL CE database, and you want to replicate them to another SQL CE database, you can use SqlSyncProvider and SqlCeSyncProvider to sync the tables from one database to another. Additional metadata tables will be created in both database if you pick sync solution to do so. Please consider if it is what you want. For more details, you can take a look of the code sample "Database Sync: SQL Server and SQL Server Compact" in http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/sync.

    Thanks,
    Dong
