XML Data-type not supported in Model generation from Database

I am trying to generate model objects from existing tables in SQL Server, one of which contains an XML type column. The Table mapping utility is disabling any editing action on that column, saying ‘Do not map. Unsupported SQL type’. Can you pls. suggest how we can work around this limitation?


Hi Syed,

How do you want to have it in your data model? As a string attribute containing XML text? If so, try to map it manually after the entity generation: just open the entity in Studio and add a string attribute with the appropriate column.
Please let us know if it works or not.
