Problem with AccessDataSource.update() RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys, 
    This is my first post at the forum, so please excuse me if something is not right ;)

    The reason for writing here is that I have encoutered a problem with AccessDataSource.update(), the actual code looks like this:

    AccessDataSource ds = new AccessDataSource();
    ds.DataFile =
    ds.UpdateCommand = "UPDATE productCategory SET category = @name, parentCategoryId = @parentCategoryId, category_de = @name_de, category_en = @name_en WHERE id = @cid;";
    "name", Navn_textBox.Text);
    "parentCategoryId", categoriesDropDown.SelectedValue.ToString());
    "name_de", NavnDe_textBox.Text);
    "name_en", NavnEn_textBox.Text);
    "cid", updateIdHidden.Value.ToString());

    Running this on local machine results in the  following error: 

    'ds.SqlCacheDependency' threw an exception of type 'System.NotSupportedException'

    Running it on a webserver results in the following error:

    Operation must use an updateable query.

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    Exception Details: System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: Operation must use an updateable query.

  • I've tested the SQL in access, and it seems to be working. Also I've debugged the code, and all the parameters are set as they are supposed. 
    I just tried your suggestion and it returns an syntaxerror in SQL, so I don't think that's where the problem is, but thank you very much for the suggestion :)

  • I don't have Access experience but in Sql Server when you add parameters, the column name (you have it) but also the parameter name: @name_de should be included in the string.

    You reacted too quickly for me. I deleted that post because I realized it was goofy, sorry. I am away from my computer, have no access to my codes and checking things on MSDN.

  • Hi again :)

    If I run it in the immediate window, the updateParameters has been properly set, so I don't think thats the problem either. Also I'm doing similar operarions elsewhere in the website, and it works fine.. it's just this one bothering me :s

  • Hello,

          The webpage issues, I recommend you create a new thread at ASP.NET Forums.   Visual C# General forum does not cover the C# issues related ASP.NET website and web applications.
