Select the data adapter, and view the properties in the Property Window.  Find the SelectCommand, and expand that set.  You will find a Parameter collection under the SelectCommand.

i think i potentially found my problem
i have a table in my physical database called payment
which contains a
autoincrement field called PAYMENTID
a beneficiaryID Field (int)
and invoiceNR (string)

now i dragged this table into my dataset1.xsd
but there are other tables as well,
i did not make any relationships, although there are.
what i need to do is:

add a new entry to payment table
e.g. if last paymentID of PAYMENTTABLE was 1, the next would be 2
and then the beneficiaryID and invoiceNR would be filled in as well.
e.g.

PAYMENTID,BENEFICIARYID,INVOICENR
2         19            ABC123

this is how i attempted it:
dim addPayment as dataset1.paymentrow = dsBeneficiary.Payment.NewPaymentRow

addpayment.benefeciaryID = 19
addpayment.invoicenr = "ABC123"


daPayment.update(dsbeneficiary,"Payment")
dsbeneficiary.payment.addpaymentrow(addpayment)
dsbeneficiary.acceptchanges

and now it runs through the hole code,no problem
but when i got to the database itself, nothing was written

daPayment SQL:
SELECT BeneficiaryID,InvoiceNR FROM PAYMENT

Try:

dsbeneficiary.payment.addpaymentrow(addpayment)

dsbeneficiary.acceptchanges

daPayment.update(dsbeneficiary,"Payment")

the problem i have here is that i only know now how to copy

the examples and then from there i will use it as templates

in my program . i dont know why the following 3 lines work:


dsbeneficiary.payment.addpaymentrow(addpayment)
dapayment.update(dsbeneficiary,"Payment")
dsbeneficiary.acceptchanges

but these 3 lines DONT work:
dsbeneficiary.payment.addpaymentrow(addpayment)
dsbeneficiary.acceptchanges
dapayment.update(dsbeneficiary,"Payment")

I don't usually do business this way, so I have to think through this:

(1) AddRow adds a new row.
(2) AcceptChanges for the dataset calls the AcceptChanges for all rows states that are not Unchanged.
(3) Update writes the changes back to the database from the disconnected dataset

I don't think that you even need the AcceptChanges for this to work--it might even explain why it doesn't work, since you mark the row as not changed, and then try to update the database.

I do something like this:

               Dim newRow As dataReferences.HintsRow = dataReferences.Hints.NewHintsRow

               newRow.Title = .textTitle.Text
               newRow.Hints = .textHints.Text

               ' Add a new row to the table.
               Me.dataReferences.Hints.AddHintsRow(newRow)

               ' Update the database with the added record.
               Me.adapterHints.Update(Me.dataReferences.GetChanges(DataRowState.Added))
