Continuing from my previous program,the code now can update but can't insert.There will be an error on ExecuteQuery.The program is suppose to identify if the id exist or not.You can probably tell from the coding.
Trying to insert but i'm not sure if i set dateID parameter correctly to check if there's a value.

My Main Program

namespace ExecuteStoredProcedure
{
    class TestClass 
    {
        public static void Main(string[] args)
        {           
            p.LoadData(73);
            p.date = DateTime.Parse("2020-2-20");
            p.dateTypeID = 456;
            p.name = "Mr James";
            p.Save(73);


            Console.WriteLine("DateID = " + "" + p.dateID.ToString());
            Console.WriteLine("DateTypeID = " + "" + p.dateTypeID.ToString());
            Console.WriteLine("Date = " + "" + p.date.ToString());
            Console.WriteLine("Name = " + "" + p.name.ToString());
            Console.WriteLine("Notes = " + "" + p.notes.ToString());
            
            Console.ReadLine();
         }
      }
}

The property setting line of _dateID = value is correct, but you never actually set it in your LoadData function, and you should carefully check your Save function too, because sometimes you use _dateID and sometimes you use dateID , which is the parameter to the function and not this.dateID which is the property that references _dateID .

Hi darkagn,

How do i set it in my LoadData?
Is this correct?

command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@DateID", _dateID);

or i need to set the properties using this.?
