While configuring a TableAdapter I noticed that the option "Create methods to send updates directly to the database (GenerateDBDirectMethods)" is greyed out.

Can a TableAdapter only have one table in order to create the methods for sending the updates directly to the database?

If so, what is the work-around?

The TableAdapter that I am trying to create uses the following statement to fill its DataTable:

SELECT Client.Name, Users.FirstName, Users.LastName


Client ON Users.ClientId = Client.Id

Thanks for your response in advance!

    • You cannot use the autogenerated ones on SQL statements that use joins. The workaround is to write the SQL statements yourself.
