So I need to get the max value of a column (or the last one) using entity framework and both of these queries throw exceptions:
(The ID I'm trying to retrieve is of type varchar, but it works in raw sql, I think it should work here too)
string maxCurrentID = db.reservations.Max().ReservationID;
The specified method 'EntityClub_.reservacion Maxreservacion' on the type 'System.Linq.Queryable' cannot be translated into a LINQ to Entities store expression because no overload matches the passed arguments.
and this one:
string maxCurrentID = db.reservations.LastOrDefault().ReservationID;
LINQ to Entities does not recognize the method 'EntityClub_.reservacion LastOrDefaultreservacion' method, and this method cannot be translated into a store expression.
How can I obtain the expected values?
You aren't asking for the highest ReservationID, you're trying to get the highest Reservation, and getting its ReservationID. EF does not understand what "the highest Reservation" means.
var maxReservationID = db.reservations.Max(r => r.ReservationID);
var maxReservationID = db.reservations.Select(r => r.ReservationID).Max();
var maxReservationId=db.reservations.Max(u =>(int?)u.ReservationID) ?? 0;
if there is no data in table it replaces
