i have a simple payroll application written in visual basic 2010 express. i have created a database (called db.mdf) within this IDE. The type of database is Microsoft SQL Server Database File (SqlClient). the data is displayed in form by the help of a data grid view.

now my challenge is: at the end of the month the main table with all his content ( id, name, nr of worked hours) should be cloned and renamed with the name of current month.

i have been searched the web for 2 weeks and i didn`t find a workable way.

Solution 1

Why don't you create a single secondary table that contains the data form all previous months rather than creating an endless series of identical tables. That way you can insert the month data into the archive data table which will have one extra identifying field (perhaps year/month like 201007, 201008 etc) and then delete those records from the main table.

sounds good. create another column to host the year and month at the edge of curent table.

but if i will do like this i think it would be dificult to create reports with report viwer control.

Should be relatively simple, you could just store the entry date in the last field using getdate(), then using a query like this


that may work it does for me anyway, but i use SQL Server
