i want to connect the sql dabase to vb.net form. can anyone tel me how to do it. i tired google. but it only says about ms access database.

please help me

Go into database explorer click connect to database

In code you can do it this way

Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Public conn As SqlConnection
conn = New SqlConnection("server = SRVERNAME ;database = DATABASENAME;Trusted_Connection = yes")

Then you can use conn.Open to open the connection and conn.close to close it.

Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Dim con As New SqlClient.SqlConnection("data source=DATASOURCE;initial catalog=NAME OF DATABASE;Integrated Security=True")
Dim cmd As New SqlCommand()
cmd.Connection = con
con.Open()
con.Close()

THIS IS WHAT I USE TO CONNECT SQL TO VB.NET
this is a sample code below:

Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Public Class NEW_PERSONAL_INFORMATION

Private Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button3.Click
Dim con As New SqlClient.SqlConnection("data source=ROOM310-40\SQLEXPRESS;initial catalog=DTIS;Integrated Security=True")
Dim cmd As New SqlCommand()
cmd.Connection = con
con.Open()
cmd.CommandText = "insert into perinfo values ('" & empid.Text & "','" & sname.Text & "','" & fname.Text & "','" & mname.Text & "','" & birthdate.Text & "','" & birthplace.Text & "','" & gender.Text & "','" & cstatus.Text & "','" & citizenship.Text & "','" & height.Text & "','" & weight.Text & "','" & btype.Text & "','" & address.Text & "','" & cp.Text & "','" & zcode.Text & "','" & telno.Text & "','" & email.Text & "','" & fathername.Text & "','" & mothername.Text & "'')"
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()

MsgBox("Record is successfully stored")
con.Close()
End Sub
End Class

hope this can help

i have copied paste your code and edited it.. but it asking con is not declared..

There are two sets of code in the above reply:

Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Dim con As New SqlClient.SqlConnection("data source=DATASOURCE;initial catalog=NAME OF DATABASE;Integrated Security=True")
Dim cmd As New SqlCommand()
cmd.Connection = con
con.Open()
con.Close()

and

Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Public Class NEW_PERSONAL_INFORMATION

Private Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button3.Click
Dim con As New SqlClient.SqlConnection("data source=ROOM310-40\SQLEXPRESS;initial catalog=DTIS;Integrated Security=True")
Dim cmd As New SqlCommand()
cmd.Connection = con
con.Open()
cmd.CommandText = "insert into perinfo values ('" & empid.Text & "','" & sname.Text & "','" & fname.Text & "','" & mname.Text & "','" & birthdate.Text & "','" & birthplace.Text & "','" & gender.Text & "','" & cstatus.Text & "','" & citizenship.Text & "','" & height.Text & "','" & weight.Text & "','" & btype.Text & "','" & address.Text & "','" & cp.Text & "','" & zcode.Text & "','" & telno.Text & "','" & email.Text & "','" & fathername.Text & "','" & mothername.Text & "'')"
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()

MsgBox("Record is successfully stored")
con.Close()
End Sub
End Class

hi i need help guys please give mo some codes to connect Vb to database..thank you.....im hoping for positive response...

For connection from a visual basic form to database , you need a connection string first like the following

connetionString = "Data Source=ServerName;Initial Catalog=DatabaseName;User ID=UserName;Password=Password"

you have to fill your database information to this connectionstring.

drag a button control to a form and put the follwoing code in to click event

    Dim connetionString As String
    Dim cnn As SqlConnection
    connetionString = "Data Source=ServerName;Initial Catalog=DatabaseName;User ID=UserName;Password=Password"
    cnn = New SqlConnection(connetionString)
    Try
        cnn.Open()
        MsgBox("Connection Open ! ")
        cnn.Close()
    Catch ex As Exception
        MsgBox("Can not open connection ! ")
    End Try

Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Dim con As New SqlClient.SqlConnection("data source=DATASOURCE;initial catalog=NAME OF DATABASE;Integrated Security=True")
Dim cmd As New SqlCommand()  
cmd.Connection = con            <--- Here is an erro - Declaration required for 'cmd'
con.Open()
con.Close()

pls try to solve this
im using visual studio 2010
ms sql 2008

Dim con as sqlclient.sqlconnection = new sqlclient.sqlconnection(Data source=servername;Initial Catalog=databasename;Integrated Security=True;)
Dim cmd as sqlclient.sqlcommand
cmd = new sqlclient.sqlcommand("insert into tblsample(one_one)values('"  & txtone.text & "')",con)
if con.state = connection.closed then con.open
cmd.executenonquery()
msgbox ("Saved.")
con.close

Dont't forget to import - Imports System.Data.SqlClient at the top.
