SQL Server -- updating the `sys.*` tables and not just reading them

SQL Server -- updating the `sys.*` tables and not just reading them

hop of those help? These tables are informational only. I want to make this clear: the sys.* and INFORMATION_SCHEMA.* views exist to provide schema information from the database engine in a useful format. They do not represent the actual schema of the database*, and modifying them is thus impossible. The only way to change your schema is to use DDL (Data Definition Language) statements, such as ALTER TABLE.
In your case, you can use a cursor to iterate through all columns with the wrong type, generate SQL statements to correct that, and execute them dynamically. Here's a skeleton of how that would look:
code :
DECLARE column_cursor CURSOR FOR
 SELECT schemas.name AS schema_name,
        objects.name AS table_name,
        columns.name AS column_name
   FROM sys.columns
   JOIN sys.objects
     ON objects.object_id = columns.object_id
   JOIN sys.schemas
     ON schemas.schema_id = objects.schema_id
  WHERE objects.type = 'U'
    AND columns.user_type_id = 108

DECLARE @schema_name VARCHAR(255)
DECLARE @table_name VARCHAR(255)
DECLARE @column_name VARCHAR(255)

OPEN column_cursor

FETCH NEXT FROM column_cursor INTO @schema_name, @table_name, @column_name


    -- TODO: modify to change to the actual type, scale and precision you want; also you may need to adjust for NOT NULL constraints, default constraints and foreign keys (all exercises for the reader)
    SET @sql = 'ALTER TABLE ' + QUOTENAME(@schema_name) + '.' + QUOTENAME(@table_name) + ' CHANGE COLUMN ' + QUOTENAME(@column_name) + ' DECIMAL(12, 2)'

    FETCH NEXT FROM column_cursor INTO @schema_name, @table_name, @column_name

CLOSE column_cursor
DEALLOCATE column_cursor

This might help you In the DELETE FROM statement, you have to add the INSERTED pseudo-table to the tables you're operating on (in the FROM clause), like so:
code :
DELETE dbo.CurrentItems 
  FROM dbo.CurrentItems
 WHERE dbo.CurrentItems.CurrentItemId = INSERTED.Id

INSERT INTO CurrentItems
WHERE IsActive = 1
DELETE dbo.CurrentItems 
  FROM dbo.CurrentItems CI
       INNER JOIN INSERTED I ON CI.CurrentItemId = I.Id

This might help you You would need to add the three fields to the message schema your SQL data is mapped onto.
Also update the SQL statement which is executed inside your sql adapter settings to return the new columns.
