I want to add tables in edmx file in using vs2010 When I try to add a table/view/sp using the described method in the documentation (Right click in the model view or designer --> Update model from database...)...It doesn't add any table in edmx..Please tell me what the problem with that..I have gone through net all the tutorials seem to be suggesting nearly the same method to add tables. Please guide.

Thanks in Advance

Yeh... I think so sometime it creates problem, So most of time I deleted all tables from the designer and adding again all tables.

This possibly happens when the table or view you trying to add is already exists in the model. So instead of using add tab from the Update wizard[^],use the refresh tab and see the effect. You can also check either the table or view exists in the model by opening in the model file in xml editor.

For more take a look at this ADO.Net Team Blog[^]
