How to save the modified data by using datagridview into Access Databases ?


  • Please help me,

    I have a problem to save the modified datagridview into MS Access.

    The source code :

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click


            Dim i As Integer




                Me.Database3DataSet1.Tables(0).Rows(2).Item(3) = TextBox1.Text

                i = NamaTableAdapter.Update(Database3DataSet1)


            Catch ex As Exception


            End Try

            MessageBox.Show("no of rows updated=" & i)

        End Sub

    When we look over MS Access database, there is no changes in this database.

  • Hi Muljanto,

    I suggest you to use OleDbCommandBuilder class to update, please refer to the code below.

    I put one DataGridView and Button Control in the Form.

    Imports System.Data.OleDb
    Public Class InsertAccess
        Public adapter As OleDbDataAdapter
        Public dt As DataTable
        Private Sub InsertAccess_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        End Sub
        Private Sub loaddate()
            dt = New DataTable()
            Dim conn = New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=D:\Database\InsertDate.accdb; Persist Security Info=False;")
            Dim selectSql = "select * from Table1 "
            adapter = New OleDbDataAdapter(selectSql, conn)
            DataGridView1.DataSource = dt
        End Sub
        Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
                Dim scb = New OleDbCommandBuilder(adapter)
            Catch ex As Exception
            End Try
        End Sub
    End Class

    Hope it is helpful to you.

    Best Regards,

  • When using a TableAdapter means you most likely had Visual Studio create strong typed classes for your data and added the database to the project. 

    If this is the case then the default setting for Copy to Output directory is "Copy always" meaning if you do updates, close the app the restart from a new build the database in the project folder is copies to the Bin\Debug folder overwriting your changes.

    Use the following setting (done from single clicking the database in solution explorer then select properties)

    If the above does not help then the other things is make sure you are checking the right database.

    The two above suggestions are common problems (seen this over the past ten years a lot) for developers who have not worked with TableAdapters before.

    See my MSDN article on the above
