  • We have no clue to what the problem is. All you did was post code (and you should use the code block option into the toolbar for this).

    So please provide detail information.

    Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help and unmark them if they provide no help, this will help others who are looking for solutions to the same or similar problem. Contact via my Twitter (Karen Payne) or Facebook (Karen Payne) via my MSDN profile but will not answer coding question on either.

  • For starters Basic Information should be in brackets [Basic Information] if that is a table name with a space in it.

    Second think I noticed is that you added the paramaters to the collection, but you need to include those names in the sql command.

    Also, you may want to create a DataSet, and OleDataAdapter? Use the Adapter to fill the dataset.

    If you create a DataRow from the DataSet, it will automatically configure it to the correct schema. Something like this: Can't promise its perfect. I'm a bit new myself.

        Private Sub InsertRecord()
            Using conn As New OleDbConnection(conString)
                Dim sel As New OleDbCommand()
                Dim ins As New OleDbCommand()
                sel = conn.CreateCommand()
                ins = conn.CreateCommand()
                sel.CommandText = "SELECT TOP 1 * FROM [Basic Information]"
                ins.CommandText = "INSERT INTO [Basic Information] ([ID],[Admitted In The Class],[Subject],[First Name Of The Student]) " +
                                        "VALUES(@Param1, @Param2, @Param3, @Param4)"
                Dim da As New OleDbDataAdapter(sel)
                da.InsertCommand = ins
                da.InsertCommand.Parameters.Add("@Param1", OleDbType.Numeric, 0, "[ID]")
                da.InsertCommand.Parameters.Add("@Param2", OleDbType.VarChar, 50, "[Admitted In The Class]")
                da.InsertCommand.Parameters.Add("@Param3", OleDbType.VarChar, 50, "[Subject]")
                da.InsertCommand.Parameters.Add("@Param4", OleDbType.VarChar, 50, "[First Name Of The Student]")
                Dim ds As New DataSet()
                Dim row As DataRow
                row = ds.Tables(0).NewRow()
                row("[ID]") = Integer.Parse(IDTextBox1.Text)
                row("[Admitted In The Class]") = Admitted_In_The_ClassComboBox1.Text
                row("[Subject]") = SubjectComboBox1.Text
                row("[First Name Of The Student]") = First_Name_Of_The_StudentTextBox1.Text
            End Using

    No despite Microsoft does in their MSDN documentation if OleDB used named parameters, is the name of the parameter complete uninmportant. It is just the order in which it is given which has be the same as in the SQL transact. Like you can see in the code given which seems to be made with a wizard do they use in their software simply in their SQL transact code  a ?. 

    I think that it is better to wait what the OP sais that the problem is.

  • I think HTHP pointed out your first problem (table name). If it fixes your issue then mark his response as the answer. Otherwise, if you are still encountering errors then please identify.

  • What Data type should i use to get % values and store for this textbox

  • Hi

    Perhaps a Function such as this would help. Used anywhere a Double is needed from a string (other types can also be dealt with in the same manner)

        Private Function GetDouble(s As String) As Double
            Dim v As Double = 0.0
            If Double.TryParse(s, v) Then Return v
            Return 0.0
        End Function

    The function would be used in place of your Cast

    would become

  • You need to remove the percent sign before the String can be converted to a Double:

    Dim percentageValue as Double percentageValue = CType(Replace(PercentageTextBox1.Text, "%", ""), Double)

    cmd.Parameters.Add(New OleDbParameter("Percentage", percentageValue))
