Help getting an ID, back from a record, that has just been inserted with a stored procedure


I was wondering if anyone could offer me some advice. I am currently using a stored procedure to insert records into a database. I want to be able to retrieve the ID (primar key) from the item that has just been inserted using the stored procedure. The ID I want to get back is Meter_ID

This is my stored procedure:





@Business_Type nvarchar(50),

@Contact_Title nchar(10),

@Contact_First_Name nvarchar(50),

@Contact_Last_Name nvarchar(50),

@Address_Line_1 nvarchar(MAX),

@Address_Line_2 nvarchar(MAX),

@City nvarchar(MAX),

@Postcode nchar(7),

@Tel_No nchar(11),

@E_mail_Address nvarchar(50),

@Distributor_ID int,

@Profile_Class int,

@Meter_Time_Code int,

@Line_Loss_Factor int,

@Unique_Identifier1 int,

@Unique_Identifier2 int,

@Check_Digit int,

@Tariff nchar(20),

@UnitRate1AnnualUsage nchar(10),

@UnitRate2AnnualUsage nchar(10),

@UnitRate1SubTotal money,

@UnitRate2SubTotal money,

@QuoteTotal money



INSERT INTO client_details (Business_Name, Business_Type, Contact_Title, Contact_First_Name, Contact_Last_Name, Address_Line_1, Address_Line_2, City, Postcode, Tel_No, email_Address)VALUES (@Business_Name, @Business_Type,@Contact_Title, @Contact_First_Name, @Contact_Last_Name, @Address_Line_1, @Address_Line_2, @City, @Postcode, @Tel_No, @E_mail_Address)



SET @Client_ID = scope_identity()


INSERT INTO meter_quote (Client_ID, Tariff, Meter_Distributor_ID, Meter_Profile_Class, Meter_Time_Code, Meter_Line_Loss_Factor, Unique_Identifier1, Unique_Identifier2, Check_Digit, UnitRate1AnnualUsage, UnitRate2AnnualUsage, UnitRate1SubTotal, UnitRate2SubTotal, QuoteTotal)VALUES (@Client_ID, @Tariff, @Distributor_ID, @Profile_Class, @Meter_Time_Code, @Line_Loss_Factor, @Unique_Identifier1, @Unique_Identifier2, @Check_Digit, @UnitRate1AnnualUsage, @UnitRate2AnnualUsage, @UnitRate1SubTotal, @UnitRate2SubTotal, @QuoteTotal)



And this is the code I have in my asp page:

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource3" runat="server"

ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ConnectionString %>"

InsertCommand="quote" InsertCommandType="StoredProcedure">


<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxBusinessName" DefaultValue=""

Name="Business_Name" PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxFirstName" Name="Contact_First_Name"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxLastName" Name="Contact_Last_Name"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxAddressLine1" Name="Address_Line_1"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxAddressLine2" Name="Address_Line_2"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxAddressLine3" Name="City"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxPostcode" Name="Postcode"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxTelNo" Name="Tel_No"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxEmail" Name="E_mail_Address"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxDistributorID" Name="Distributor_ID"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxProfileClass" Name="Profile_Class"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxMeterTimeCode" Name="Meter_Time_Code"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxLineLossFactor" Name="Line_Loss_Factor"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxUniqueIdentifier1" Name="Unique_Identifier1"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxUniqueIdentifier2" Name="Unique_Identifier2"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxCheckDigit" Name="Check_Digit"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="LabelTariff2" Name="Tariff"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="TextBoxUnitRate1Usage" Name="UnitRate1AnnualUsage"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="LabelUnitRate2Usage" Name="UnitRate2AnnualUsage"

PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="LabelUnitRate1Total" Name="UnitRate1SubTotal"

PropertyName="Text" Type="Decimal" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="LabelUnitRate2Total" Name="UnitRate2SubTotal"

PropertyName="Text" Type="Decimal" />

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="LabelQuoteTotal" Name="QuoteTotal"

PropertyName="Text" Type="Decimal" />



And the following in the C# code:



SqlDataSource3.Insert();//Insert quote details into the database using a stored procedure


catch (Exception ex)


LabelInsertException.Text =
"Failed" + ex.Message;


Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks, Hayley

Hi, You need to use @@IDENTITY

Declare @New_ID int

INSERT Code here...

Select @New_ID = @@IDENTITY

Thanks, So how would I use this with the code I have??

3/22/2008 12:17:35 AM

I'm guessing you are looking for meter_id from meter_quote

 Declare a variable @meter_id.

Like smcoxon suggested, after the insert in to meter_quote table add a statement

set @meter_id=@@identity

Sorry this is taking me a while to grasp, so I set the meter_id to @@identity.

I want to display this id in a label somewhere on the page. do I just need to set a control paramter in my asp page, or do I need to add some code in my C# code??

Thanks, Hayley

 Check this post, its very much similar to your situation. Pay attention to @@Identity and the code marked in red. Its 13th post in that thread. Hope it helps.
