SQL 2008 r2 database design question

SQL 2008 r2 database design question

SQL 2008 r2 database design question

(OP)
I am working on a db design for a client, taking data from an Excel file and creating tables. There are a couple of places where the field is a 'calculated' field, it combines six fields to make a barcode. How would you create this field to auto-fill when the record is entered?

RE: SQL 2008 r2 database design question

Use a computed column.
