i want to delete a selected row from the database.the entries of
database is shown by a gridview and i do
<OnRowDeleting="GridView1_RowDeleting"> in source code.

i select and bind as follows.

string str = "select PNR,CreditCardNumber as 'Credit Card
Number',EmalAddress as 'Email Address',PassengerName as 'Passenger
Name',PassportNumber as 'Passport Number',IPNumber as 'IP Number' from
fraud_db order by PNR";
dbconn dc = new dbconn();

SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection("Data
Source=IT0004493;Initial Catalog=IBE_fraud;User ID = sa ; password =
ecomtest ");//Trusted_Connection = yes;
SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand(str, myConnection);
SqlDataReader myReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader();

GridView1.DataSource = myReader;



now when i click on delete link it calls GridView1_RowDeleting(object
sender, GridViewDeleteEventArgs e) method

inside that method? i suppose to delete the row from db using that
entries of row using the query delete * from db where ....
(there is no primaty key in the table.)

What you could do is add DataKeyNames to the GridView and set your table column names in there i.e.

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" 
DataKeyNames="PNR,Credit Card Number,Email Address,Passenger Name,Passport Number,IP Number">

And in your GridView1_RowDeleting you'll be able to build a query like this...

Dim strSql As String = String.Format("DELETE FROM myTable WHERE PNR = {0}, CreditCardNumber {1}, EmalAddress = {2}, PassengerName = {3}, PassportNumber = {4}, IPNumber = {5}", GridView1.DataKeys(e.RowIndex)("PNR"), GridView1.DataKeys(e.RowIndex)("Credit Card Number"), GridView1.DataKeys(e.RowIndex)("Email Address"), GridView1.DataKeys(e.RowIndex)("Passenger Name"), GridView1.DataKeys(e.RowIndex)("Passport Number"), GridView1.DataKeys(e.RowIndex)("IP Number"))
