SQL - check whether it is no record, null value or string value RRS feed

  • Question

    I wish to check the result which may be no record, null value or string value

    Null error if it is assigned to a variable.

    is it necessary to run the query thrice?  it seems not very clever.  Thanks a lot.

            Dim SQL_Valid As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("Select ABC from Table where id=4753", SQLCS)
            If IsDBNull(SQL_Valid.ExecuteScalar) Then
                MsgBox("Field is null")
            ElseIf SQL_Valid.ExecuteScalar Is Nothing Then
                MsgBox("No record")
            End If
