Excel to dataset to database RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using the following code to get data from an excel file, to fill one of the tables of my database...

    I can see the data is arriving to the dataset because I'm able to see it in the datagridview of the table...

    But when I push the save button and close the app, the database stays unchanged...

    I can see that after I get the data to the dataset, the rows state is "unchanged" soI've changed one of the rows state to added, and it worked... If I try to do this to every row (which I don't see as a good practice...) I get an error....

    Those someone knows a better way, because I really think It can't be that hard....



    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

    'TODO: This line of code loads data into the 'ArmaGestDbDataSet.Componente' table. You can move, or remove it, as needed.


    End Sub

    Private Sub ComponenteBindingNavigatorSaveItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ComponenteBindingNavigatorSaveItem.Click




    End Sub

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

    Dim cn As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection

    Dim cmd As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter

    cn = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection("provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _

    "data source=C:\Livro1.XLS;Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;")

    ' Select the data from Sheet1 of the workbook.

    cmd = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter("select * from [Folha1$A1:L4]", cn)





    End Sub
