  • Remember that https://myfolder/order_no.pdf is a URL, not a file path.  You can't store a file using that path.  You have to store it in the file system of the web server.  Is your app running on the web server, or do you have access to it?

    Once you have an order number, it is easy enough to create a string with the appropriate URL and store it in your database.  So, what code do you have so far?

  • Hi Arif_dxb,
    As Tim Roberts said, the https://myfolder/order_no.pdf is a URL, not a file path.
    And do you want to send the string "https://myfolder/order_no.pdf" to the database field? 
    If so, you can refer to the following simple code example.

    SqlDesigner.ExecuteNoQuery("insert into test(Id,Name) values (111, 'https://myfolder/order_no.pdf')");
    class SqlDesigner
        private static string connStr = @"connectString";
        public static int ExecuteNoQuery(string sql)
            using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(connStr))
                using (SqlCommand cmd = conn.CreateCommand())
                    cmd.CommandText = sql;
                    return cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
