Database is not updated RRS feed

  • Question


    I am trying to insert data to a simple table using SQL express

    However , I can see the data saved in the DataSet but not in the actual database.

    If I try to insert the same user again , I got primary key violation ???


    Here is the insert function :

    string SqlConnection = @"Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\QJ.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True";

    SqlConnection Conn = new SqlConnection(SqlConnection);

    SqlDataAdapter DataAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM USERS", Conn);

    SqlCommandBuilder ComandBuilder = new SqlCommandBuilder(DataAdapter);

    DataAdapter.InsertCommand = ComandBuilder.GetInsertCommand();

    DataAdapter.UpdateCommand = ComandBuilder.GetUpdateCommand();

    DataSet DS = new DataSet();

    DataAdapter.Fill(DS, "USERS");

    DataTable DT = DS.Tables["USERS"];

    DataRow DR = DT.NewRow();

    DR["NAME"] = txtUserName.Text;

    DR["Password"] = txtPass.Text;

    DR["Type"] = 1;










    I dont know what I have done wrong

    Please help

    Thanks very much

  • This is possibly happening because you are looking in the wrong place for your database to be updated. The DataDirectory variable is a tricky one and could lead to issues. Follow this link to get a clear understanding for where to look for data in SQL Express and see if this solves the problem.
