What am I Missing.

hi sibotho,

there could be two problems
When you are running your program please do not open the database keep it closed.
If this does not help check your program and see if you have already opened your connection for any other operation close that application. Let me know if this helps

Kind Regards,

Hi

Thanks for your help,

I run my program with the database closed and i have not opened the connection for any other operation. but now it gives me a different error:

[System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: No error information available: DB_SEC_E_AUTH_FAILED(0x80040E4D). at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection.ProcessResults(Int32 hr) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection.InitializeProvider() at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection.Open() at BookFlight.RegistrationForm.Button1_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\bookflight\registrationform.aspx.cs:line 113]

Do you know what could be causing this specific error?

Thanks again
sibotho

Hi,
Can you give me code for the database connection and query you are trying to perform for the database.

I am trying to insert something in my database using the following code.

[
try
{
string ConnString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source="+
";User Id=Admin;Password=;";

oleDbConnection1 = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection(ConnString);


this.oleDbConnection1.Open();

//while (dataReader.Read())
string strInsert;

strInsert = "insert into users(userName, password, emailAdd, cellNo)"
+ " values('" + this.usenameTextBox.Text + "', '"
+ this.passwordTextBox.Text + "', '"
+ this.emailTextBox.Text + "', '"
+ this.phoneTextBox.Text + "')";

if (this.usenameTextBox.Text !="" && this.passwordTextBox.Text !=""&& this.emailTextBox.Text !="" && this.phoneTextBox.Text !="")
{
this.oleDbDataAdapter1.InsertCommand.CommandText = strInsert;
//do the insert
this.oleDbDataAdapter1.InsertCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();
}
}
catch(System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException ex)
{
erroLabel.Visible = true;
erroLabel.Text += ex.ToString();
]

hi ,

try this way

try
    {
        this.oleDbDataAdapter1.InsertCommand.CommandText = 
            "INSERT INTO BookDb (author, EditionNumber, ISBN, Title)" +
            "VALUES     ('"+ this.author_textBox.Text        
            +"','"+this.ed_textBox.Text+
            "' , "+ this.isbn_textBox.Text +",'"+   
            this.title_textBox.Text+"')";
        //open the bridge between the application and the datasource
        this.oleDbConnection1.Open();
        this.oleDbDataAdapter1.InsertCommand.Connection =  oleDbConnection1;
        //execute the qurey 
        this.oleDbDataAdapter1.InsertCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();
        //close the connection
        this.oleDbConnection1.Close();
        MessageBox.Show("Record insedted Successfully");  //inform the user
        //clear the form 
        this.title_textBox.Text = "";
        this.isbn_textBox.Text = "";
        this.author_textBox.Text = "";
        this.ed_textBox.Text = "";
        //show the qurey
        this.qurey_label.Text = "";
        this.qurey_label.Text =                                    
        oleDbDataAdapter1.InsertCommand.CommandText.ToString();
    }
    catch(System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException exp)
    {
        //close the connection
        this.oleDbConnection1.Close();
        MessageBox.Show(exp.ToString());
    }
