Remove this part:

 ' Fail validation (prevent them from leaving the cell)
e.Cancel = True

You can try wrapping the columns in IIFs.

For example:

IFF(IsNothing(DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(2).Value.ToString) Or DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(2).Value.ToString = String.Empty, String.Empty, DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(2).Value.ToString)

The IIF qualifies the statement then pulls the value given.
In this example would be the equivilent of:

IF IsNothing(DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(2).Value.ToString)) Or DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(2).Value.ToString = String.Empty Then
    row2 = String.Empty
    row2 = DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(2).Value.ToString
End If

A true value should be failsafe like String.Empty or 0.
A false value should be the actual column.

Just a note though, if you WANT null values passed to the database use:

row2 = DBNull.Value

You can read more about this function here.

thanx luc for response.. removing it leting me to insert into another cell leaving empty cells but it doesnt make empty cells to 0..


begginnnerdev thanx.. but it would make code much long for making each as u said.. isnt there any short code for this.. thanx..


hi begginnerdev..i found error..........iff not declared... how to declare it..


oh sorry... i wrote iff so i found error.. i was iif.. hehe.. thanx


You could pass the values into a DataAdapter instead of using a string based method.

This would safeguard against SQL Injection attacks, and add some cushion for errors.

Private Sub Insert()
    Dim da As New OleDBDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM nursery WHERE 1=2", MyOleDBConnection)
    Dim ds As New DataSet
        da.Fill(ds, "Nursery") 'This will get table structure without data.

        If Not IsNothing(ds.Tables("Nursery")) Then
            For Each r As DataGridViewRow In DataGridView1.Rows
                Dim dr As DataRow = ds.Tables("Nursery").Rows.Add

                dr("regno") = IIf(Not IsNothing(r.Cells(1).Value.ToString), DBNull.Value, CInt(r.Cells(1).Value.ToString))
                dr("rollno") = IIf(Not IsNothing(r.Cells(2).Value.ToString), DBNull.Value, r.Cells(2).Value.ToString)
                dr("nepali") = IIf(Not IsNothing(r.Cells(3).Value.ToString), DBNull.Value, r.Cells(3).Value.ToString)
                dr("com_english_w") = IIf(Not IsNothing(r.Cells(4).Value.ToString), DBNull.Value, r.Cells(4).Value.ToString)
                dr("com_english_o") = IIf(Not IsNothing(r.Cells(5).Value.ToString), DBNull.Value, r.Cells(5).Value.ToString)

thanx begginnerdev.. i found error on

You should replace MyOleDBConnection with the name of your connection.

For instance:

Dim MyOleDBConnection As New OleDBConnection("ConnectionStringHere")

        'If String.IsNullOrEmpty(Me.DataGridView2.Item(i1, i2).Value) Then
        'Me.DataGridView2.Rows(i1).Cells(i2).Value = 0

        'End If

        For i = 0 To DataGridView1.Rows.Count - 1
            '  Dim row1 As Integer = DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(1).Value.ToString

hi begginnerdev.. i did it as u said but when i leave empty cell i find error --object reference not set to instance of object. if i leave empty cell in column 3 i find this error in
IIf(IsNothing(DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(3).Value.ToString), String.Empty, DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(3).Value.ToString)

Dim MyOleDBConnection As New OleDbConnection("ConnString")
        Dim da As New OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM nursery WHERE 1=2", conn)

    Format of the initialization string does not conform to specification starting at index 0.
    i found this error..

If the cell is empty the Value property will be null;


IIf(IsNothing(DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(3).Value.ToString), String.Empty, DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(3).Value.ToString)


IIf(IsNothing(DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(3)), String.Empty, DataGridView2.Rows(i).Cells(3).Value.ToString)

As for the connection string, you have to place the string inside the constructor of the connection.

As for the snippet you posted, the connection being passed in to the DataAdapter is not the same connection you are declaring.
