I am exploring using RoR for a new project but have run into a
problem with ActiveRecord and SQL Server’s timestamp datatype.
We have a NOT NULL timestamp column in a table and ActiveRecord keeps
trying to update it, which promptly causes it to blow up. I have
tried making the value NULL for insert and update in the model, but
SQL Server doesn’t like that either.
Is there any way to get ActiveRecord to just completely ignore that
column short of using a view to hide it?
