Hi,

I am trying to make a program that allows one to see a database (MS Access) and add items to the database.
The database works perfectly (update and suchs) but the adding won't, sadly enough.
The error I get is (translated as i'm using a Dutch version): Syntaxisfault in characterline. in query 'item);
Item is the thing that needs to be added.
The code below uses a typeString which is the choice you have to make with a combobox.
Both options won't work, because of the same reason, even though they are different.

string SQLString = "";
if (typeString == "Usable")
{
   SQLString = "INSERT INTO Items(Naam) VALUES('" + Item.Replace("'", Item) + ");";
}
else
{
   if (typeString == "Combo")
   {
       SQLString = "INSERT INTO Combo(Naam) VALUES('" + Item.Replace("'", "''") + ");";
   }
   else
   {
       MessageBox.Show("You need to select item type!");
   }
}

In line 4, you have

SQLString = "INSERT INTO Items(Naam) VALUES('" + Item.Replace("'", Item) + ");";

should it be

SQLString = "INSERT INTO Items(Naam) VALUES('" + Item.Replace("'", "''") + ");";

like you have later in the code?

See the bolded line.

Oh, it's because you forgot the ending apostrophe. Your statments both end in "Values('" + .... + ")" and both should read "Values('" + ... + "')" But either way, "Item.Replace("'",Item)" isn't going to work.

Tried and it worked :D
Many thanks to you (will put this thread on solved)

i have this code, but dont word, i dont know why, please help me

Edited 7 Years Ago by __avd: Add [code] tags. Encase your code in: [code] and [/code] tags.

You should change:

values No, Nombre, Apellidos, No_identidad, No_Cuarto, Fecha_Entrada, Fecha_Salida, Acompanantes, Dias_Hospedado, Cuota_Persona, Total_Cobro, No_Recibo, @Fecha_Recibo)";

to

values (@No, @Nombre, @Apellidos, @No_identidad, @No_Cuarto, @Fecha_Entrada, @Fecha_Salida, @Acompanantes, @Dias_Hospedado, @Cuota_Persona, @Total_Cobro, @No_Recibo, @Fecha_Recibo)";
