Argument Not Specified For Parameter, too many arguments RRS feed

  • User-359936451 posted

    I'm working with visual studio 2008 and a sql server express database. I've written some VB code behind and a stored procedure to retrieve data from the DB with multiple selections from a Listbox. I'm getting the following error which appears to be a problem passing 'myString' the list of selected items from the listbox, to the SP. The process works the first time I execute, but when I go back to the list box and select additional records, I get this error...

    Procedure or function usp_itemReport has too many arguments specified.


    Code Behind:

            Dim numItems As Integer
            Dim numSelected As Array
            Dim myString As String
            myString = ""
            numSelected = ListBox1.GetSelectedIndices()    ' Index of items selected in box
            numItems = ListBox1.Items.Count                      ' Number of items in List box
            Dim li As ListItem
            For Each li In ListBox1.Items
                If li.Selected = True Then
                    If myString = "" Then
                        myString = li.Value
                        myString = myString & ", " & li.Value
                    End If
                End If
            ' Build connection to the DB and query for the records.
            itemDataSource.ConnectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("garrgrpConnectionString").ToString()
            itemDataSource.SelectCommandType = SqlDataSourceCommandType.StoredProcedure
            itemDataSource.SelectCommand = "usp_itemReport"                                     ' Call stored procedure
            'Establishes value of Primary key list sent to STORED PROCEDURE 
            itemDataSource.SelectParameters.Add("keyIds", myString)
            GridView2.DataSource = itemDataSource


    Stored Proc:

    ALTER PROCEDURE usp_itemReport
    @keyIds varchar(300)
    DECLARE @sql varchar(max);   
    SET @sql = 'SELECT * FROM item AS s WHERE keyID IN ('+ @keyIds +')';    
    EXECUTE (@sql);

    I have added  colummn names by binding to the fields but the orginal column remains in the gridview. Is there a way to bind to the column so that I do not get duplicate columns returned in the gridview?

    Here is a snippet of the code where I created a Bound item from the Gridview, I thought it would use the columns returned but it actually created a second column, returning the results twice.

                                        <asp:BoundField DataField="itemStreetDate" HeaderText="Street Date" 
                                            SortExpression="itemStreetDate" DataFormatString="{0:d}" />
                                        <asp:BoundField DataField="itemVendorName" HeaderText="Ven Name" 
                                            SortExpression="itemVendorName" />
                                        <asp:BoundField DataField="itemTitle" HeaderText="Title" 
                                            SortExpression="itemTitle" />
                                        <asp:BoundField DataField="itemUPCID" HeaderText="UPC" 
                                            SortExpression="itemUPCID" />

    I found the answer, it is a property setting of the GRidview....

    <asp:GridView ID="GridView2" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"

    Okay, I now have another issue that doesn't appear to be as easy to solve.

    It appears that since I bound the gridview in code, the wizard will not create the java for sorting on column headings. This seems to be more difficult then expected to code this manually, there must be a better way to get the column sorting function set for this process.

    I did already include the setting...


    For the Gridview, this only provides the underline under the column names, the page throws and error whenI click on the column to sort on it...


    Server Error in '/' Application.

    The GridView 'GridView2' fired event Sorting which wasn't handled.

     As another note, my SqlDataSource is coded inline in the asp.net page....

    <asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="head" Runat="Server">
        <asp:SqlDataSource ID="itemDataSource" runat="server" ></asp:SqlDataSource>


    Any suggestions?

     Thank you!!
