Hi, I kind of hit a bump in the road with SQL and C#.

I am sending information through to a stored proc like:

    SqlCommand TestCaseManager = new SqlCommand("TestCaseManager", thisConnection);
    TestCaseManager.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
    TestCaseManager.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@TestCaseName", TestCaseName));

    if (c.Controls[2].Text.Equals(string.Empty))
    {TestCaseManager.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@Steps", DBNull.Value));}

    else 
    {TestCaseManager.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@Steps", c.Controls[2].Text));}

    if (UnitTester.GroupBoxCreator.SomeClass.PictureLocation.Count.Equals(0))
    {TestCaseManager.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@Img", DBNull.Value));}

    else 
    {byte[] Img = File.ReadAllBytes(UnitTester.GroupBoxCreator.SomeClass.PictureLocation[r].ToString());
    TestCaseManager.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@Img", Img));}

    thisConnection.Open();
    object ObjTestCaseManager = TestCaseManager.ExecuteScalar();
    thisConnection.Close();

and my stored proc looks like:

    USE [TestCaseManager]
    GO
    /****** Object:  StoredProcedure [dbo].[TestCaseManager]    Script Date: 01/03/2014 10:49:43 ******/
    SET ANSI_NULLS ON
    GO
    SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
    GO

    ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[TestCaseManager]
        @TestCaseName nvarchar(MAX), @Steps nvarchar(MAX), @Img image   
    AS

    DECLARE @SqlCommand nvarchar(MAX)
    SET @SqlCommand = 'INSERT INTO '+@TestCaseName+' ([Steps], [Img]) VALUES (' +@Steps+', '+@Img+')'
    EXEC(@SqlCommand)

The error that I receive for the SQL part is : "The data types nvarchar(max) and image are incompatible in the add operator."

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

You're trying to save a string into an image type, those two are incompatible. You need to extract a byte array of the image to pass to SQL.

Try specifying the type when you add the parameter

TestCaseManager.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@Img", SqlDbType.Image, Img));

I tried that and now it says "Declare scalar variable "@Img"" something something, I'm not at my PC at the moment and my stupid Internet Explorer did not want to post this message today.
