this is my insert statement

<WebMethod()> _
    Public Sub Update_TransactionRecords(ByVal ID As String, ByVal CurrentTranxDateTime As DateTime, ByVal NAME As String, ByVal ACCNO As String, ByVal BILLNO As String, ByVal BILLAMO As String, ByVal BILLINT As String, ByVal BILLTOT As String, ByVal Payment As Double)

        'Dim strSQL As String = ""


        strSQL = "INSERT INTO dbo.TransactionRecord([ID],[TransactionDate],[Name],[AccountNo],[BillNo],[BillAmount],[ServiceCharge],[TotalAmount],[Commission]) VALUES ('" & ID & "','" & CurrentTranxDateTime & "','" & NAME & "','" & ACCNO & "','" & BILLNO & "','" & BILLAMO & "','" & BILLINT & "','" & BILLTOT & "','" & Format(Payment, "0.00") & "')"

        cmd.CommandText = strSQL


    End Sub

Why not convert the method into a function that returns a string.
And then enclose the code in a Try...Catch statement.
If the code should fail, then you can return the .ToString() of the exception object and examine what went wrong.
Otherwise you just return an empty string.
