    As per http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/adodotnetentityframework/thread/e05f6c62-2dbd-4c3f-87f9-c30c184597c5, “Update Model from Database” updates only the data type lengths and nullability, however, it won’t always refresh the CSDL section.

    Due to this behavior, every time I update my database schema, I need to delete the .edmx file from my project and re-generate the ADO.NET entity model again from the database. BTW, this also requires a kludge to remove the previous ConnectionString from app.config, or else the names of the generated entities are not the same.

    I would like Update to work as if I had started from scratch, and not some optimized way I don't even understand. At least add an "Update Model from Database As If It Were From A New Database" option....
