Entity Framework throws exception – Invalid object name ‘dbo.BaseCs’

Spread the love

Question Description

I’ve followed Adam’s answer here and the Entity Framework now works and the Seed() method also works.

But when I try to access the database like this:

    public User FindUserByID(int id)
    {
        return (from item in this.Users
                where item.ID == id
                select item).SingleOrDefault();
    }
  .............................................................................
    // GET: /Main/

    public ActionResult Index(int? id)
    {
        var db = UserDataBaseDB.Create();

        if (!id.HasValue)
            id = 0;

        return View(db.FindUserByID(id.Value));
    }

It throws an exception at return (from item in this.Users stating:

Exception Details: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Invalid object name 'dbo.BaseCs'.

I’ve tried replacing it with:
return this.Users.ElementAt(id); but then it throws this exception.

LINQ to Entities does not recognize the method 'MySiteCreator.Models.User ElementAt[User](System.Linq.IQueryable1[MySiteCreator.Models.User], Int32)’ method, and this method cannot be translated into a store expression.`

Can anyone help me?
Thank you!

Exception Details: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Invalid object name ‘dbo.BaseCs’

This error means that EF is translating your LINQ into a sql statement that uses an object (most likely a table) named dbo.BaseCs, which does not exist in the database.

Check your database and verify whether that table exists, or that you should be using a different table name. Also, if you could post a link to the tutorial you are following, it would help to follow along with what you are doing.
