Hi,

I am new to ASP.NET and i have been thrown into the deep end on a project, the person who created this code is no longer available. The website allows an Admin to login and edit, update or delete information in an SQL database referring to PDFs located on the server. the issue comes when trying to delete a record from the database.

This is the error i get:

Server Error in '/' Application.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry that's not the right error. It's this:

Conversion failed when converting from a character string to uniqueidentifier.

Hi,the problem seems to be in conversion.

The stored Procedure expects parameters of type Int or Bigint or numeric that is too defined in Autoincrement mode within the database.


The problem is here
1 ) SqlDbType.VarChar for parameterUID -- define it as int or int32 or something in numeric
2 ) SqlDbType.VarChar for parameterRefNO -- as above
3 ) While passing it like this myCommand.Parameters.Add(parameterUID)
convert it into integer type in this way myCommand.Parameters.Add(Convert.ToInt32 (parameterUID))

Here is your changed code...

'@UID varchar(20)
Dim parameterUID As SqlParameter = New SqlParameter("@UID", SqlDbType.Int32)
parameterUID.Value = Session("UserID")
myCommand.Parameters.Add(Convert.ToInt32(parameterUID))
'@RefNo varchar(20)
Dim parameterRefNO As SqlParameter = New SqlParameter("@RefNo", SqlDbType.Int32)
parameterRefNO.Value = RefNO
myCommand.Parameters.Add(Convert.ToInt32(parameterRefNO))
'@Rowguid varchar(30)
Dim parameterRowguid As SqlParameter = New SqlParameter("@Rowguid", SqlDbType.Int32)
parameterRowguid.Value = Rowguid
myCommand.Parameters.Add(Convert.ToInt32(parameterRowguid))

Hope it helps :)

I've made those changes but is now coming up with this error:

I have changed the code as you said to this:

'@UID varchar(20)
        Dim parameterUID As SqlParameter = New SqlParameter("@UID", SqlDbType.Int)
        parameterUID.Value = Session("UserID")
        myCommand.Parameters.Add(Convert.ToInt32(parameterUID))

        '@RefNo varchar(20)
        Dim parameterRefNO As SqlParameter = New SqlParameter("@RefNo", SqlDbType.Int)
        parameterRefNO.Value = RefNO
        myCommand.Parameters.Add(Convert.ToInt32(parameterRefNO))

        '@Rowguid varchar(30)
        Dim parameterRowguid As SqlParameter = New SqlParameter("@Rowguid", SqlDbType.Int)
        parameterRowguid.Value = Rowguid
        myCommand.Parameters.Add(Convert.ToInt32(parameterRowguid))

It comes up with this error

Hey,did you check that at the backend what is the data type of UID and all in your Stored procedure???
Check it out and let me know.
And also try this..

myCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue ("@UID",Convert.ToInt32(parameterUID))

and replace these two lines

Dim parameterUID As SqlParameter = New SqlParameter("@UID", SqlDbType.Int)
parameterUID.Value = Session("UserID")

Edited by Akash Saikia: Added more information

UID is varchar

also made those changes and still coming up with same error

Do one thing,post your stored procedure code here,and let me try to find for any bug there.

But before doing that,try to execute that stored procedure in your Sql server 2005 or any version,by right clicking on your sql procedure for deletion,and pass proper values for deleting it.

0

To be honest I'm not sure what or where the stored procedure is. Im very new to all this and have been thrown in the deep end.

If you can give me some ideas of what im looking for I should be able to find it.

Edited by abathurst: n/a

Ohh k,
So do one thing write a hard coded code there instead

Let me know first what is Refno,UserId and RowGuid in your table??
Does all these three values are needed to delete a single record???
If yes
then change your code to like this :

Private Sub Delete_Publication(ByVal RefNO As String, ByVal Rowguid As String)
Dim myConnection As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("ConnectionString"))
Dim myCommand As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("Delete_Publication", myConnection)
myCommand .commandtext="delete from yourTablename where RefNo='" & RefNO & "' and RowGuid='" & Rowguid & "' and UserId='" & Session("UserID") & "'"  
 cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
'Then rest of the lines at the bottom

Remember the fieldname may differ in the code suggested above
for example if have used wher RefNo=
but it may be written as something differenc in your database

From what i can tell, the UserId is just making sure you're login as Admin it's not actually in the table. RefNo and RowGuid are just unqiue characters used to identify each row, so it should only need one, RowGuid, to locate the file to delete.

0

So try the the method i wrote above,with a bif of change with your fieldname,and it will sure delete the records.

0

I tried with this code:

Private Sub Delete_Publication(ByVal RefNO As String, ByVal Rowguid As String)

        Dim myConnection As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("ConnectionString"))
        Dim myCommand As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("Delete_Publication", myConnection)

        myCommand.commandtext = "DELETE from Publications where Rowguid='" & Rowguid & "'"

        myConnection.Open()
        myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()
        myConnection.Close()

    End Sub

But still get the error:

Server Error in '/' Application.
