        LongDateString = OrderDate.ToLongDateString
        If (product.Text = "") Then

            ErrorStr = ErrorStr & " Please Enter Product number, "
        End If
        If (Quantity.Text = "") Then

            ErrorStr1 = ErrorStr1 & " Please Enter Product quantity, "
        End If
        Dim pri = "SELECT price FROM product WHERE ProductNO='" & product.Text & "'"

        cmd.Connection = con
        cmd.CommandText = pri
        Dim s As String = cmd.ExecuteScalar()

        cmd.CommandText = Add
        Try
            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try




    End Sub

I try to change in the statment but still the same error occour please help me

While (i <= 100)
            i = (i + 1)


            Dim pri = "SELECT price FROM product WHERE ProductNO='" & product.Text & "'"

            cmd.Connection = con
            cmd.CommandText = pri
            Dim s As String = cmd.ExecuteScalar()
            Dim a As String
            a = ("INSERT INTO order Values ( i  And Quantity.Text  And pri And  Daysinmonth And  x And  product.Text );")
            cmd.CommandText = a
        End While

These are your problems:
1. You cannot add an integer into an integer column with quotes.
2. You're inserting directly into the SQL statement. Use parameters.

Add = "INSERT INTO order Values ('" & 1 & "','" & Quantity.Text & "','" & pri & "','" & Daysinmonth & "','" & x & "','" & product.Text & "');"

Do this insert statement, and please change your code to use parameters. It will protect you from SQL INJECTION. Cause of right now, I can easily type into any of these fields a drop command and your table will be dropped with all data. Anyway, here's your fixed insert statement.

Add = "INSERT INTO order Values (1," & Quantity.Text & "," & pri & "," & Daysinmonth & "," & x & "," & product.Text & ");"

This assumes all your fields are for integers and not text. Text columns you wrap in your quotes (" '" & .. & "' "), all integer fields you don't (" " & .. & " ")

alright, well then there can be a few problems. Make sure all data types of your columns meet the correct ways of entering them (integer - no quotes in query :: text - quotes in query), then make sure you have the right number of columns in the query as you do on your database table. If you have 7 columns on your table and 6 or 8 in your query, you will get this error. Safest bet is to do an insert like this:

INSERT INTO tblname (column1, column2, column3.....) VALUES (value1, value2, value3.....)

Those should be your only two problems. Have you attempted to use parameters instead of direct inserts? It will help reduce errors ten fold.

Add = "INSERT INTO tblname (column1, column2, column3, ....) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ....)"
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue( "?ColumnName", value )

still did not work
how can I use the parameter if you do not mind can I attach the whole program
we are supposed to make an online order resturant
thanks

I am actually at work so I can't use the files anyway.

I gave you an example on how to use the parameters. It's quite simple.

Add = "INSERT INTO tblname (column1, column2, column3, ....) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ....)"
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue( "?Column1", value1 )
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue( "?Column2", value2 )
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue( "?Column3", value3 )

Do that for each parameter you have. THey must be in the same order as your SQL statement.

thanks I will try if you can have a lock at the file after work or even tommorow i will be thankfull for you

that what i do but when i log in it appear an error

Conversion from string"some one" to type "Double" is not valid

here is code with session statment

Dim x As String
        Dim u As String
        u = Session.Contents("user")
        x = Session(u) = 0
        If Session("user") = 0 Then   at this statement the error appear            Server.Transfer("login.aspx")
        Else
            x = Session("user")
            cmd = New OleDbCommand
            Dim getname = "SELECT member_userName FROM member/product WHERE member_userName = '" & (x & "'")
            cmd.CommandText = getname
            Dim l As String = cmd.ExecuteScalar()

oh that's why! First of all, before I get into it, check your syntax on the getname SELECT statement near the "x". Should drop the "(" before the x and everything after it.

The problem is that you cannot assign the values like that. x = sessionuser = 0, it doesn't work that way. You first have to assign session(u) = 0 then x = Session(u). And "u" was already set to the username of "some one". You Then you tried to set it to zero, but you are setting it to an integer, not a string. You must put it exactly as:

Session("user") = "0"

That way it treats it as a string. Without the quotes, it treats it as an integer (or double). But can I ask you this.. why are you setting it to zero anyway?

From what I see, you set "u" equal to a sessions.contents, then you're setting x equal to zero... I am so confused on this one. It seems as if there is no point for x in the first part. Session("user") will be different than Session(u) just about Always.

And becareful about server.transfer, it transfer's the page correctly, but the url will stay the same. Redirect will transfer the page and change the url.

i set session("user")=0 to be sure that the customer is a member
when I put it Session("user") = "0"
it doesn't compare if the customer is member or not

well that session was set at first to be a string. Your only hope is to then set the session("user") to nothing then set it again to zero. That should work for you.

Session("user") = Nothing
Session("user") = 0

or user a completely different Session object for the user.

for better debugging as it seems as if it is a problem in your code, trade out your TRY CATCH statement for this:

Try
  cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
Catch ex As OleDbException
  MsgBox(ex.Message)
End Try

This one will give you the exception that the database is throwing.

when I put it the msg appear is syntax error in INSERT INTO Statment

nvm, this is why:

dd = "INSERT INTO order (OrderNo, quantity, price, date, member_UserName, Product_Number)Values (1," & "Quantity.Text" & "," & "pri" & "," & Daysinmonth & "," & x & "," & "product.Text" & ");"

You cannot use the quotes like that, here:

Add = "INSERT INTO order (OrderNo, quantity, price, date, member_UserName, Product_Number)Values (1," & Quantity.Text & "," & pri & "," & Daysinmonth & "," & x & "," & product.Text & ");"

Gotta remove the quotes around your Text fields :)

Okay, for your second problem with the delete, add the following before your executenonquery and obviously replace connectionname with your connection name:

if Not connectionname.State = ConnectionState.Open then connectionname.Open()

'' and after your executenonquery:

if connectionname.State = ConnectionState.Open then connectionname.Close()

Okay, woops. I really have to read your code before I post. Change this entire section to this:

If Session("user") = Nothing Then
            Response.Redirect("login.aspx")
        Else
            Add = "INSERT INTO order (OrderNo, quantity, price, date, member_UserName, Product_Number) Values (?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?);"
            cmd.CommandText = Add
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("?OrderNo", 2)
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("?quantity", Trim(Quantity.Text))
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("?price", pri)
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("?date", Daysinmonth)
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("?member_UserName", x)
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("?Product_Number", Trim(product.Text))
        End If

I don't normally use command text and all those little things. I just normally do:

cmd = New OleDbCommand( "INSERT INTO....", connectionname )
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue...
....

both didn't work the error whe i deleting has change i attach it as screen shot

If you do not mind would you make it for me as the way you usually do here is the my connection path


con.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source='C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Desktop\my\WebSite4\App_Data\EC.mdb';Persist Security Info=True"

its saying that the "con" variable isn't set. You never set the con variable in that function, and if it is a public variable, then it should be okay. If not, that's the reason why. Try setting "con" to the right connection string. THat is the problem you got this time and last. "con" is not set.

Dim u As String = Session("user")
Dim con As New OldDbConnection( "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source='C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Desktop\my\WebSite4\App_Data\EC.mdb';Persist Security Info=True" )
Dim x As New OleDbCommand( "DELETE * FROM order WHERE Product_Number=?", con )
x.Parameters.AddWithValue( "?Product_Number", Trim(productNum.Text) )
if Not con.State = ConnectionState.Open() then con.Open()
Dim recs As Integer = x.ExecuteNonQuery()
if con.State = ConnectionState.Open() then con.Close()

if recs > 0 then
  'successfully updated a record
  Response.Write (" Product successfully removed..... ")
else
  'failed to update record
  Response.Write (" We're sorry, there was an error processing your request. Please try again. ")
end if
