I feel guilty about posting again but I need help again and I have tried other sources of help e.g google and asking someone who is familiar with vb.net but still can't find the solution to it. It must be another simple fix but I cant find any reference to it online and the person I asked said that the checkbox values are -1 for false and 0 for true but when I use it in a sql statement it doesnt work. Paid is the field name for a checkbox in ms access and I would like to return the number of records for a certain student where they have paid.
The following code returns this error Conversion from string "SELECT * FROM tblBookings WHERE " to type 'Long' is not valid.
Dim con As New OleDb.OleDbConnection Dim OleDBCon As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection Dim ds As New DataSet Dim da As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter Dim sql As String Dim numberofpaid As Integer Dim Target As Integer Dim Target2 As Integer Target = Val(txtStudentId.Text) Target2 = 0 con.ConnectionString = "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source = \DrivingSchool.mdb" sql = "SELECT * FROM tblBookings WHERE StudentID = " & Target And "Paid =" & Target2 MsgBox(sql) OleDBCon = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection(con.ConnectionString) da = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(sql, OleDBCon) OleDBCon.Open() da.Fill(ds, "PaidBookings") numberofpaid = ds.Tables("PaidBookings").Rows.Count MsgBox(numberofpaid)
I did have to think twice before posting as it may seem like as soon as I hit a problem I post it here but I do search around first and try out a few different things e.g using boolean values but it didn't work.
