Name/ID Phrasing Dialog Box

SQL Server 2000

Use this dialog box to specify a name phrasing for your relationship.

When one entity is the name (or ID) of another entity, use name phrasing to describe the relationship between them.

When specifying the two entities in this dialog box, you provide information to answer the following types of questions:

  • "Show me a customer named John Smith."

  • "List all the employees by name."

  • "What do you know about Mary Smith?"

  • "Show last names of people named Tom."
Options

Entity that is Name/ID

Select the entity represented by a database object in which name or ID values are stored.

For example, in the phrasing, Customer_Names are the names of customers, customer_name is the entity.

Entity being named

Select the entity named.

For example, in the phrasing, Customer_Names are the names of customers, customer is the entity being named.
