Create Market with country "Netherlands"?


Hi all

I'm trying to create a new Episerver Market using the IMarketService.CreateMarket method. On the MarketImpl, I'm adding the Country "Netherlands".

Looking in the Country table, this looks like the correct name, but when I create the Market, I get the exception below.

I have done a bid of debugging. It looks as if Episerver tries to add the Country to the udttCountryCode user defined table before calling the stored procedure to create the Market. This table is defined like this:

CREATE TYPE [dbo].[udttCountryCode] AS TABLE(

[CountryCode] [nvarchar](8) NULL


But "Netherlands" is a little more than 8 characters. This looks like a bug in Episerver? Can somebody (Quan Mai or Son Do) create this bug, or should I create a support ticked for this?

No, it's not a bug, it's feature. When you add the countries to a market, it should be the ISO country code. For Netherlands it should be NLD. You can take a look at Country table to see all country codes available.

Hi Quan

Oh, well I added "Denmark" as country code, and that gave me no erros. That was why I thought it was a bug.

I will change my code to add the correct values. Perhaps you could consider to add a check for the correct values?

Yes, we can consider that - however no promises at this point :)
