vb.net Update database using dataAdapter failing, "Dynamic SQL generation UpdateCommand is not supported..."

Hi experts,

I have a datagrid that displays the contents of a database table via a dataAdapter.  I am under the impression that ADO.NET in disconnected mode allows dynamically changing the datagrid contents and writing it back to the original database via the dataAdapter....  However, I keep getting an error: "Dynamic SQL generation UpdateCommand is not supported against a SelectCommand that does not return key column information".

Could someone please take a look at my code and let me know where I went astray?  The initial datagrid view works fine.  Clicking the "SaveChanges" button illicits the correct message box as well, which means the tables and temporary tables are being accessed properly as well....

"dgCustomers" is the DataGrid on the Windows Form.

Windows Form variables:

   Dim daDataTransfer As New OleDbDataAdapter
   Dim dtCustomerTemp As New DataTable

OnLoad():

  Try
            Dim cmdCommand As New OleDbCommand
            Dim conConnect As New OleDbConnection

            conConnect.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Persist Security Info=False;Data Source = " & System.AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory & "\dbOrders.mdb"

            conConnect.Open()

            cmdCommand.Connection = conConnect
            cmdCommand.CommandText = "SELECT CustomerInfo.FirstName, CustomerInfo.LastName, CustomerInfo.TelephoneNo,FROM CustomerInfo;"

            daDataTransfer.SelectCommand = cmdCommand
            daDataTransfer.Fill(dtCustomerTemp)

            dtCustomerTemp.DefaultView.AllowNew = False
            Me.dgCustomers.DataSource = dtCustomerTemp
            Me.btnSave.Visible = True

        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("Unable to create DataGrid view.  ERROR: " & ex.ToString, MsgBoxStyle.Information)
        End Try


On Clicking the SaveChanges button():

Private Sub btnSave_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnSave.Click

        Dim dtChanged As DataTable
        Dim comBuild As OleDbCommandBuilder
        Dim drRows As Integer

        'check to see if there were any changes made
        dtChanged = dtCustomerTemp.GetChanges()

        If Not IsNothing(dtChanged) Then
            Try
                comBuild = New OleDbCommandBuilder(daDataTransfer)
                drRows = daDataTransfer.Update(dtChanged)
                MsgBox("Updates successful.", MsgBoxStyle.Information)
            Catch ex As Exception
                MsgBox("Update ERROR:  " & ex.Message, MsgBoxStyle.Exclamation)
            End Try
        Else
            MsgBox("There was nothing to update.", MsgBoxStyle.Information)
        End If

    End Sub

Thanks!

cmdCommand.CommandText = "SELECT CustomerInfo.FirstName, CustomerInfo.LastName, CustomerInfo.TelephoneNo,FROM CustomerInfo;"

Hi Larry_T,
are you sure that this line is executed : SELECT CustomerInfo.FirstName, CustomerInfo.LastName, CustomerInfo.TelephoneNo,FROM CustomerInfo; ?
i think it should be:

SELECT CustomerInfo.FirstName, CustomerInfo.LastName, CustomerInfo.TelephoneNo FROM CustomerInfo;

SELECT CustomerInfo.FirstName, CustomerInfo.LastName, CustomerInfo.TelephoneNo FROM CustomerInfo;

Sorry that was a typo on my behalf....  I actually took out a few of the fields for the SQL statement.

I know the SQL statement works, because the datagrid is displaying the information properly.  It's in the dataAdapter Command where I think the problem is- it crashes is there's any changes.

Praneetha, how would I change the SELECT statement to include the Primary Key information?

Unless you include a primary key column in your initial select, you must manually enter your insert, update, and delete commands for your adapter.

I prefer to do this through the Visual Studio GUI.  Just right click on your data adapter, then select Configure Data Adapter.

You can also do it manually through the oleDbAdapter.InsertCommand .UpdateCommand and .InsertCommand properties.

I forgot to mention that I am using OLEDB.  I've read many articles so far but none of the implementations seem to work properly....

any suggestions?  :)

Thanks- I got it.

I forgot to include the Table Column that had the Primary key... because I didn't want the viewer to be able to overwrite it.
