I am using Vb.net to update a database running on SQL Server.
I am using the following to increase the value of the NextPlan in the SystemControl table in a SQL database.
Command.CommandText = "UPDATE SystemControl SET NextPlan = NextPlan + 1"
Once the Command is executed and I look in the actual database I can see the value has been incremented. How can I get the Command to return the new value of NextPlan so I don't need to then do a table read to get the new value.
Try the following
Dim id as Integer = Command.ExecuteScalar()
