Access DataSource Codebehind RRS feed

  • Question

  • User14589008 posted

    Hello,

    I am having trouble getting my gridview to populate with access data. I added my access data source in my web config file. Now I am just tyring to call the connection string in my web config file in my codebehind file. The code is below:


    Imports System.Collections
    Imports System.Configuration
    Imports System.Data
    Imports System.Web
    Imports System.Web.Security
    Imports System.Web.UI
    Imports System.Web.UI.HtmlControls
    Imports System.Web.UI.WebControls
    Imports System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts
    Imports System.Data.OleDb
    Imports System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection


    Partial Class _Default
        Inherits System.Web.UI.Page


        Private Sub Page_Load()

            Dim Panel1 As Panel
            Dim Panel2 As Panel
            Dim GridView1 As DataGrid
          

            Dim dtCustomerInfo As Data.DataTable
      


            dtCustomerInfo = GetQuery("SELECT * FROM resumetable")


            GridView1.DataSource = dtCustomerInfo
            GridView1.DataBind()

            Panel1.Visible = False
            Panel2.Visible = True
        End Sub

        Private Function GetQuery(strSQL As String) As DataTable

         Dim dbConn As Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection
         Dim ExecuteReader as System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection
         Dim cmdSQL As Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand
         Dim dtResults As Data.DataTable
     
    'dbConn = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["accessConStr"].ConnectionString

    dbConn = (New Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=d:\hosting/djbconsulting/access_db/buddyschampion.mdb"))

         cmdSQL = New Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand(strSQL, dbConn)

         dbConn.Open()
         dtResults.Load(cmdSQL.ExecuteReader())
         dbConn.Close()

         Return dtResults

    End Function


    End Class

    try this

    Private Function GetQuery(strSQL As String) As DataTable

         Dim dbConn As Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection
         Dim ExecuteReader as System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection
         Dim cmdSQL As Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand

    dbConn = (New Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=d:\hosting/djbconsulting/access_db/buddyschampion.mdb"))

         cmdSQL = New Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand(strSQL, dbConn)

         dbConn.Open()

         Dim sda as new Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter

         sda.SelectCommand = cmdSQL

         sda.Fill(dtResults)

         dbConn.Close()

         Return dtResults

    End Function

    Thanks for getting back with me. I tried the "Dim sda..." code from above and it still does not work. It is not even giving me an error message to let me know what I am doing wrong. Here is my .aspx file for the codebehind file:

    Hello,

     I added the code above and I am still unable to see the count. Please click this link here: http://buddyschampion.com/resumesearch.aspx. This is the page I am trying to get my grid view to appear on, but I don't see anything. This is really weird. Permissions are correct, as well.

    I am thinking that this maybe has something to do with my web config file connection string. Would you mind taking a look, if you feel this may be the problem?

    Check whether ur database table has values in it

    Since there is no error this might be the issue

    Hello,

    Yes, there is data in the table. I don't know what's going on here. This is so weird!

     Thanks for ALL of your help. This is really driving me crazy!!! :-)

    Dim Panel1 As Panel
    Dim Panel2 As Panel

    Dim GridView1 As DataGrid

     

    Get rid of these three lines.

    Completed - but still nothing. I don't know what to do. Maybe it's ... ummmm...could it be something wrong with my web.config file/connection string?

    You aren't one of those people that has multiple copies of the database you are developing are you?  You know - one with no data in it, and one filled up.  Then you go and connect to the empty one?

    I'm not that stupid. :-)

     I tried a few other things and nothing.

    I re-did the entire page on my local machine and the page views just fine. I don't know why I am not getting anything when viewing the page online. Is there another way to make my data showup on the page and allow sorting without using a gridview?

    Devirell,

    Did you get this to work?

    You say it works on the local box...this is using the path to the file that you gave in a previous post, right?

    On the website, you may have to change the path in your connection code to reflect the location of the database on the server. This is if the path to the database is different than the path on your local box.

    Is the website and Access database on the same server?

    You are getting something.  You are getting an error message.  First thing I wopuld do is move the database to the App_Data folder and then use the following connection string:

    "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=|DataDirectory|buddyschampion.mdb"

    That way, the connection string can stay the same regardless of which machine you are using, so you don't need to make any changes when uploading your code to the web server. See if that helps
