Just learning to use (and greatly appreciating!) the Open Access ORM. However, I'm repeatedly running into a problem that may be due to my inexperience, but, wanted to know if others run into this as well.
Here is what happens: I create an entity model from my SQL Server database. The entity objects are all populated on the model, with relationship links all appearing.
1) It appears that even though I create indexed views in the database (even specifying a primary, clustered index), I get errors that the Open Access entity model lackes primary keys on these views. Is that normal, or as designed?
2) It also seems that once you create the model, don't touch it! If I delete an object from the model by deleting it from the model entity relationship diagram, it causes havoc. I have to manually delete other objects elsewhere that mapped to these objects I just deleted. Even then, it seems sometimes the only way to fix, is to totally delete the Entity Model and start again.
So... I'm guessing since I'm new to this I'm probably shooting myself in the foot when I do these things. Or, is this normal?
