hi,
i'm working on windows application and sql serverCE database i write this code:

private void enregistrerBtn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            
            if (!exist)
            {
                
                SqlCeConnection conn = new SqlCeConnection();
                conn.ConnectionString = @" Data source= |DataDirectory|\Database1.sdf";
                try
                {
                    conn.Open();
                }
                catch (Exception ex)
                {
                   MessageBox.Show(" connexion failure");
                }
                finally
                {
                    
                    int r;
                    System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeCommand cmd1 = new System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeCommand ("INSERT INTO Condamne(Nom,Prenom,AnneeJugee,LieuNaissance,NomPere,NomPrenomMere,LieuResidence,SituationFamiliale,NomFrançais,PrenomFrançais)VALUES('" + nomTextBox.Text + "','" + prenomTextBox.Text + "','" + dateJugementTextBox.Text+"','"+LieuNaissanceTextBox.Text+"','"+prenomPereTextBox.Text+"','"+nomMereTextBox.Text+"','"+lieuResidenceTextBox.Text+"','"+sit uationFamilialeComboBox.Text+"','"+nomFrançaisTextBox.Text+"','"+prenomFra                  nçaisTextBox.Text+ "');", conn);
                   
                    r = cmd1.ExecuteNonQuery();
                    MessageBox.Show(" add operation success");
                   
                }
                conn.Close();
            }
            
        }

my problem is that when i execute this code the operation of inserting in the " condamne" table is successfully. but when i do an operation of search of this new person added in the table i don't find it.
i hope you can help me and execuse my bad english

To view the current record, you have to open .sdf which is located under Bin\Debug folder.

hi,
thanks for replay but i mean that when i use a ' select' query to search the record inserted i don't find it. is it that because i use DATADIRECTORY in the path of database or what?
thanks again.
