Delete records in repeater

Hello,
I have a data repeater that displays database records in a table.  I want to add a "delete" button in the repeater so that a user can press the button to delete the corresponding record but I do not know how to pass that value back to the SQL "DELETE" statement.  Can someone help?

Thanks.

Whats the data type of File_ID

If its int then use

Dim sSQL As String = "DELETE FROM tblMgmtReview WHERE FILE_ID = " & FILE_ID

if its char use
Dim sSQL As String = "DELETE FROM tblMgmtReview WHERE FILE_ID = '" & FILE_ID & "'"

Yeah that's what I tried to do but didn't know how to pass the record ID value into the SQL statement.

Here is the code that builds the repeater table:
Sub Page_Load(Source As Object, E As EventArgs)
Dim objConn As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings.Get("ConnectionString"))
Dim sSQL As String = "SELECT FILE_ID, FILE_NAME FROM tblMgmtReview ORDER BY FILE_NAME"
Dim objCmd As New SqlDataAdapter(sSQL,objConn)
Dim objDS As New DataSet()
objCmd.Fill(objDS, "tblMgmtReview")
MgmtOutput.DataSource = objDS.Tables("tblMgmtReview").DefaultView
MgmtOutput.DataBind()
objConn.Close
End Sub
------DELETE CODE HERE----------
Sub cmdDelete_OnClick(Source As Object, E As EventArgs)
Dim objConn As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings.Get("ConnectionString"))
Dim sSQL As String = "DELETE FROM tblMgmtReview WHERE FILE_ID = @FileID"      
Dim objCmd As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand(sSQL,objConn)
objCmd.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@FileID", <not sure what to put here>))
Try
objConn.Open()
objCmd.ExecuteNonQuery
lblMessage.Text = "Record successfully deleted.<br />"
Catch SqlEx As exception
lblMessage.Text = "There was an error:&nbsp;" & SqlEx.ToString()
Finally
objConn.Close()
End Try
End Sub
------------------ REPEATER TABLE -------------------
<form runat="server">
<asp:Repeater ID="MgmtOutput" OnItemCommand="onClick_Delete" runat="server">
<headertemplate>
<table width="100%" style="border:1px solid #000000;" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td style="font-weight:bold;background-color:#666666;color:#FFFFFF;">ID:</td>
<td style="font-weight:bold;background-color:#666666;color:#FFFFFF;">File Name:</td>
<td style="font-weight:bold;background-color:#666666;color:#FFFFFF;">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
</headertemplate>
<itemtemplate>
<tr>
<td style="border:1px solid #000000;"><%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"FILE_ID")%></td>
<td style="border:1px solid #000000;"><%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"FILE_NAME")%></td>
<td style="border:1px solid #000000;"><asp:Button ID="btnDelete" OnClick="cmdDelete_OnClick" Text="Delete" runat="server" /></td>
</tr>
</itemtemplate>
<footertemplate>
</table>
</footertemplate>
</asp:Repeater>
</form>

I'm new to ASP.NET so please excuse my code if it's "messy".

I get this error now:
Method 'Public Sub onClick_Delete(Source As Object, e As System.EventArgs)' does not have the same signature as delegate 'Delegate Sub RepeaterCommandEventHandler(source As Object, e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterCommandEventArgs)'.

Actually disregard that last error.  Here is the error I get now:

There was an error: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Syntax error converting the nvarchar value 'FILE_ID' to a column of data type int. at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior cmdBehavior, RunBehavior runBehavior, Boolean returnStream) at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()

Oh put it within quotes

Dim sSQL As String = "DELETE FROM tblMgmtReview WHERE FILE_ID = '"  & FILE_ID & "'"

This has
1 single quote after =
then a double quote
Then & File_ID & and then a double quoute
then a single quote
then a double quote

Hi again,
I had some syntax wrong but when I re-tried the code it delete everything in the entire table, not just the record I wanted to delete.  Not sure what happened there but here was the delete code I used:

Sub onClick_Delete(Source As Object, e As EventArgs)
Dim objConn As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings.Get("ConnectionString"))
Dim sSQL As String = "DELETE FROM tblMgmtReview WHERE FILE_ID = " & "FILE_ID" '
Dim objCmd As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand(sSQL,objConn)
Try
objConn.Open()
objCmd.ExecuteNonQuery
lblMessage.Text = "Record successfully deleted.<br />"
Catch SqlEx As exception
lblMessage.Text = "There was an error:&nbsp;" & SqlEx.ToString()
Finally
objConn.Close()
End Try
End Sub

jitgangulyCommented:
Again
Dim sSQL As String = "DELETE FROM tblMgmtReview WHERE FILE_ID = " & "FILE_ID" '
is wrong
do exactly as I described above

The reason for deleteting all records is all of them got File_ID = passed id. Check that

Okay I corrected the syntax but still receive this error:

There was an error: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Syntax error converting the varchar value 'FILE_ID' to a column of data type int. at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()

I'll be sure to increase my points if we can get this fixed.
