Hello,

I am trying to get the currently selected values from dropdown lists and textboxes from a web page and write them to an access database.
I am using MS Web Developer 2005 Express.
To do that I have created data Source , for the InsertQuery Property of the DataSource I have the following:

INSERT INTO DataStatus(CedantID, CompanyType, CompanyName, TypeOfFile, FileName,Reportingperiod) VALUES ('@CedantID', '@CompanyType', '@CompanyName', '@TypeOfFile', '@FullFileName','@ReportingPeriod')

Then I have Created button and on it`s onclick event I have nameOfDataSet(qryaddRecods).Insert() When I click on the button , it does write a row in the table .
The problem is instead of getting the selected values , it returns parameters as described in the insert query.
Instead of selected reporting period (2009-02-28) I get @ReportingPeriod, instead of CedantID (1111) I get @ CedantID in the table.

Could you please tell me if you have an idea where my problem is .

Thanks in advance

Thanks very much for looking

Get rid of the surrounding ' for the values in your insert statement.

INSERT INTO DataStatus(CedantID, CompanyType, CompanyName, TypeOfFile, FileName,Reportingperiod) VALUES ('@CedantID', '@CompanyType', '@CompanyName', '@TypeOfFile', '@FullFileName','@ReportingPeriod')

should probably be

INSERT INTO DataStatus(CedantID, CompanyType, CompanyName, TypeOfFile, FileName,Reportingperiod) VALUES (@CedantID, @CompanyType, @CompanyName, @TypeOfFile, @FullFileName,@ReportingPeriod)

With Access, I've also had to do something like

INSERT INTO DataStatus(CedantID, CompanyType, CompanyName, TypeOfFile, FileName,Reportingperiod) VALUES ([@CedantID], [@CompanyType], [@CompanyName], [@TypeOfFile], [@FullFileName],[@ReportingPeriod])

whay you don't use the simple way?

define function to execute
sub execute(p,p,p,p,p,p,.....) ' as many as you want!
'then

Dim conn As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\DB\DataStatusRecord1.mdb")
Dim strSQL As String = "insert into (TABLENAME) (C,C,....) values (p,p,p......p) "
dim cmd as Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand
cmd = new Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand(strSQL, conn)
Dim da As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(cmd)
Dim ds As New Data.DataSet

cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
'da.fill(ds)

something like this and don't forget to open and close connection

i hope this well help you

good luck!!!

Great thank you both,

bcasp I had to remove the single quotations around the parameters values and add square brackets as you suggested.
so [@ParameterName] instead of '@ParameterName'

Bandar M.A thank you very much to you toofor your exact reply . It hitted the point . Thanks.
Here is the final code :

Protected Sub btnAddRecords_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnAddRecords.Click
        'on click of a button insert records
        qryAddRecords.Insert()
    End Sub
    Private Sub execute(ByVal CedantID, ByVal CompanyType, ByVal CompanyName, ByVal TypeOfFile, ByVal FullFileName, ByVal ReportingPeriod, ByVal ReciptDate)
        'handles getting the currently  selected data in controls
        Dim conn As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\DB\DataStatusRecord1.mdb")
        Dim strSQL As String = "insert into (DataStatus) (CedantID,CompanyType,CompanyName,TypeOfFile,FileName,ReportingPeriod,DateReceived) values (@CedantID,@CompanyType,@CompanyName,@TypeOfFile,@FullFileName,@ReportingPeriod,@ReciptDate) "
        Dim cmd As Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand
        conn.Open()
        cmd = New Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand(strSQL, conn)
        Dim da As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(cmd)
        Dim qryAddRecords As New Data.DataSet
        da.Fill(qryAddRecords)
        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
        conn.Close()

    End Sub

and the query I have on the insertquery propery of the data source qryAddRecords is:

INSERT INTO DataStatus(CedantID, CompanyType, CompanyName, TypeOfFile, FileName, ReportingPeriod, DateReceived) VALUES ([@CedantID], [@CompanyType], [ @CompanyName], [@TypeOfFile], [@FullFileName], [@ReportingPeriod], [@ReciptDate])

Although when I try to preview the query execution it throws an error it works perfectly.

Thanks again.
