MVC and ADO.Net RRS feed

    Hi Friends,

    I am trying to do something I would think would be extremely easy. Maybe I have got so used to using the entity framework, but I just want to return data from a stored procedure that receives one parameter usining plain old ADO.NET. I dont know what in the world I could be doing wrong but should I enclose the name of my stored procedure in brackets within the SqlCommand like this var command = new SqlCommand("[dbo].[spGetSSN]", connection) or remove the brackets? And is this how I add a parameter to the stored procedure...... command.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("ssn", model.SSN)); or do I need a @ sign before the ssn like @ssn? This seems extremely simplistic but for some reason it's not working. Thanks for any HELP !!!

    The official ADO.NET docs has examples.


    I would start by going through the source examples.  If you still need help, share your actual source code.

    This is an example of how my colleague performed a delete operation, but I need to pull some data in. Thanks !!!

    public ActionResult RemoveSSN(RemoveSSN.Models.RemoveSSNModel model)


                string message;

                string status;

                if (ModelState.IsValid)


                    using (SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings[model.connectionString].ConnectionString))

                    using (var command = new SqlCommand("[dbo].[spRemoveSSN]", connection)


                        CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure






                            command.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("ssn", model.SSN));


                            message = "SSN successfully deleted.";

                            status = "success";

    The link in my first post shows how to create parameter queries with code examples.  Your colleague's examples shows how to execute a stored procedure with parameters.   Both  are patterns that you should be able to reuse by substituting your SQL script.

    I think it's a good idea to meet with your colleagues and ask for assistance in this matter.
