can not add a record to a db table using the and



I am trying to insert record to Pups Database using and in a windows application.

This form will collect data from user to insert it into stores table at Pubs database (storeID, name, address etc..).

I am not able to get the new inserted record into the stores table

here is my coude behind for the form

Imports System.Data.SqlClient


Public Class ParametersExample

Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

Dim con As SqlConnection


Private Sub addBttn_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles addBttn.Click

Dim cmd As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand()

Dim iRowsAffected As Integer

con = New SqlConnection()

con.ConnectionString = "Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\PUBS.MDF;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True"

cmd.CommandText = "spInsertStore"

cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure

cmd.Connection = con

"@stor_id", SqlDbType.Char, 4)

cmd.Parameters.Item("@stor_id").Value = txtID.Text

cmd.Parameters.Add("@stor_name", SqlDbType.VarChar, 40)

cmd.Parameters.Item("@stor_name").Value = txtName.Text

cmd.Parameters.Add("@stor_address", SqlDbType.VarChar, 40)

cmd.Parameters.Item("@stor_address").Value = txtAddress.Text

cmd.Parameters.Add("@city", SqlDbType.VarChar, 20)

cmd.Parameters.Item("@city").Value = txtCity.Text

cmd.Parameters.Add("@state", SqlDbType.VarChar, 2)

cmd.Parameters.Item("@state").Value = txtState.Text

cmd.Parameters.Add("@zip", SqlDbType.Char, 5)

cmd.Parameters.Item("@zip").Value = txtZip.Text

cmd.Parameters.Add("@current_count", SqlDbType.Int)cmd.Parameters.Item("@current_count").Direction = ParameterDirection.Output



iRowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()


Dim iCurrentCount As Integer

iCurrentCount = cmd.Parameters.Item("@current_count").ValueMsgBox("the current count is: " & iCurrentCount)


End Sub

End Class



and the stored procedure to access table is here

ALTER PROCEDURE dbo.spInsertStore



@parameter1 int = 5,

@parameter2 datatype OUTPUT




as char(4),

@stor_name as varchar(40),

@stor_address as varchar(40),

@city as varchar(20),

@state as char(2),

@zip as char(5),

@current_count as int OUTPUT


stores (stor_id,






VALUES (@stor_id,






SELECT @current_count = Count(*) FROM stores


I Do get the msgbox display the number of records of the table, but I can not see the newley enterd record added to the table.

(I do refresh the Pubs database after each entry)

why I am not being able to insert the new record?

 You need to rebind the datagridview to it's datasource. One question...if you close the app and rerun it, do you see the data you insert before closing?

One more note, these forums are for For windows apps, you're better off going to They have a good support community too. Good luck Big Smile

No, if i close the app and rerun it, still I get the same old result, and the record is not inserted.

Do you have the .mdb file added to your solution? If so, right click it in solution explorer and select properties. See if "copy to output" is set to always or not. If it is, change it.

hi Heartattack, thanks again for responding

yes I have done that, Initially the copy to output is set to aways, so I did not change it, but still does not solve the problem.
