Good day.

I am having a trouble on how to update my reocrds on my 2 tables. 1 table is sample and the other table is tbl_educ. my sample table which has a pk of emp_id while the tbl_educ has a field of emp_id they are related by one-many relationship.

sample table                      tbl_educ
emp_id(pk)                         emp_id
lname                              school_name
fname                              school_address
mname                              level

heres my code.

        'dtAdapter = New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT sample.emp_ID, tbl_educ.School_Name, tbl_educ.School_Address FROM sample RIGHT JOIN tbl_educ ON sample.emp_ID = tbl_educ.emp_id;", con)

        'cmdBuilder = New OleDb.OleDbCommandBuilder(dtAdapter)


    End Sub

    Private Sub srecord()
        If dtTable.Rows.Count = 0 Then

        DAdapter = New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter("Insert into tbl_educ (school_name,school_address,level)values(@school_name,@school_address,@level)", con)

        cmdBuilder = New OleDb.OleDbCommandBuilder(dtAdapter)

        'cmd = New OleDb.OleDbCommand(DAdapter)

        dr("emp_id") = txtEmp.Text
        dr("school_name") = txtSName.Text
        dr("school_address") = txtSAddress.Text
        dr("level") = txtLevel.Text


        rowpos = dtTable.Rows.Count - 1
        rowpos = ds.Rows.Count - 1


    End Sub

End Class

the error that i encounter is emp_id is not a category of the table..
how can i add record for my table.

hope can help me...

email me.. <<Email Snipped>>

You database is not set up correctly. What it sounds like you want is to have a one to many relationship between sample and tbl_educ. But you can't without having a unique field in tbl_educ.

Change tbl_educ to include a new field that becomes it's primary index, so call the field tbl_educ_id, make it a long integer (or integer) make the field unique and auto increment (or an identity Column) and make it primary index.

Now make a relationship between emp_id between the two tables and now it will be a one to many setup.

The way you had it, it could only be a one to one relationship.

@ the_carpenter thanks for reply. it helps me a lot..
