Here is what I have, that doesn’t work.

public void GetProductPrice(int productID)
                  int ID = productID;
                  string strSQL = "SELECT product_price from t_products where product_id = productID";

How can I make it so where the string reads productID it will be the value that was passed in??

What if I wanted a variable to be in the middle of a string, would this be correct?

strSQL = " "SELECT" + productID.ToString() + " from t_products where product_id = 2" ";

yep but it is a bad example bcz select something is from database..

string strSQL = "SELECT product_price from t_products where product_id ="+ productID.ToString()+" and product_type='try'";
