Delete Unmapped Tables and Views Dialog Box (Entity Data Model Designer)

Visual Studio 2010

The Delete Unmapped Tables and Views dialog box appears when you use the Entity Data Model Designer (Entity Designer) to delete objects from the conceptual model. When you have selected items on the Entity Designer surface for deletion, the Delete Unmapped Tables and Views dialog box displays the objects in the storage model that will also be deleted and presents you with three options: Yes, No, and Cancel. The following actions are taken for each option:

  • Yes: In addition to the objects in the conceptual model that you selected for deletion, all unmapped objects (shown in the dialog box display) are deleted from the storage model. This includes objects in the storage model that were already unmapped, not just objects that have become unmapped as a result of the deleting the selected conceptual model objects.

  • No: No objects will be deleted from the storage model. Only the objects in the conceptual model that you selected will be deleted.

  • Cancel: The operation is canceled. No objects in the conceptual model or storage model will be deleted.
