Hi all...
it's a shame I have to ask, but what is the easiest way to do an update on a Access file?

currently I have:
----------------------
string connectionCC = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source="+ Server.MapPath("/data/network.mdb");
string SQLquery = "UPDATE....."
OleDbConnection myConn = new OleDbConnection(lrFuncs.connectionCC);



----------------------
How can I "execute" this query?

string connectionCC = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source="+ Server.MapPath("/data/network.mdb");
string SQLquery = "UPDATE....."
OleDbConnection myConn = new OleDbConnection(lrFuncs.connectionCC);OleDbCommand cmd = New SqlClient.SqlCommand(SQLquery, connectionCC);

connectionCC.Open();
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery(); // this does the update
connectionCC.Close();

You should probably also wrap this in try/catch block too.

Hope this helps,
Alex

Sorry, the I missed the line break, in previous post.
This is how is should look:

OleDbConnection myConn = new OleDbConnection(lrFuncs.connectionCC);
OleDbCommand cmd = New SqlClient.SqlCommand(SQLquery, connectionCC);

Ok, I don't know what's wrong with me... probably to much cut and paste...

Here is the correct one:
string connectionCC = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source="+ Server.MapPath("/data/network.mdb");
string SQLquery = "UPDATE....."
OleDbConnection myConn = new OleDbConnection(lrFuncs.connectionCC);
OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(SQLquery, connectionCC);

connectionCC.Open();
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery(); // this does the update
connectionCC.Close();

You should probably also wrap this in try/catch block too.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

the line:
---------
OleDbCommand cmd = New SqlClient.SqlCommand(SQLquery, connectionCC);
---------
does not work, SqlClient gets red marks and the debugger says: ";" expected.
Any idea?

Hehe, we posted at the same time ;)
Anyways, still some probs with your code:

OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(SQLquery, connectionCC);
needs to be
OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(SQLquery, myConn);

but now it works, so thank you ;)
