Hi I have my code I have written below and i'm not sure it is correct.
I'm passing a record key form my SQL database to delete record(s) and update record(s).
Do I need to put 'db.SaveChanges()' in more often?
Any pointers would be greatfully recieved. I'm new to EF.
Many Thanks.

What I have tried:

VB
Dim db As New iconportalEntities

'Get records in the Artwork Batch
Dim LogRecords = db.ArtworkRequestLog.Where(Function(c) c.F1Int = ukey)

For Each ArtworkRequestLog In LogRecords

    Dim DataLineUK As Integer = ArtworkRequestLog.ItemKey

    'For each line in Artwork Batch: Update related Data line
    Dim DataRecord = db.Datas.SingleOrDefault(Function(c) c.UK = DataLineUK)
    DataRecord.TemplateName = Nothing
    DataRecord.ArtworkRef = ""
    DataRecord.Grade = Nothing

    'Remove Line from Artwork Batch
    Dim ALogRecord = db.ArtworkRequestLog.SingleOrDefault(Function(c) c.UKEY = ukey)
    db.ArtworkRequestLog.Remove(ALogRecord)

Next


'Now Delete the Artwork Request Batch

Dim ABatchRecord = db.ArtworkBatchRequestLog.SingleOrDefault(Function(c) c.UKEY = ukey)
db.ArtworkBatchRequestLog.Remove(ABatchRecord)

db.SaveChanges()
db.Dispose()

Looks like it should work, apart from the fact that you need to test whether SingleOrDefault actually returned anything.

What happens when you run it?

Thanks Richard, since writing this question, I managed to find a tutorial that explains that only one SaveChanges is required. Runs OK. Any pointers on a good EF site / book?
thanks, Paul
