Did you try this?  not tested

      dbCmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
      dbCmd.CommandText = "update CustDet set logo=NULL";
      dbCmd.Parameters.Clear();
      dbCmd.Connection.Open();
      dbCmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
      dbCmd.Connection.Close();

and also you have to use a primery key to update only the image you want. Your code will update all the rows.
e.g
      dbCmd.CommandText = "update CustDet set logo=NULL WHERE [id]=50";

I am just curious why you are updating ... I thought you said you wanted to delete it?

Generally to delete a row someone would execute a command such as

DELETE FROM CustDet where [id] = 222

When you say it doesn't work what happens .. perhaps we can help you figure it out but we will need some more information as there are many reasons why the statement may not work. If the code is throwing an exception, that exception would help alot in figuring out whats going on. If it is not throwing an exception what are the pre/post conditions, what is the statement being executed, and lastly what is the expected/observed behavior?

Cheers,

this is the code :

connection.ConnectionString = BL.Conn.ConnString();
                        dbCmd.Connection = connection;

                        dbCmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
                        dbCmd.CommandText = "DELETE logo FROM CustDet where CustDetRunID=4";
                                                

                                                      

                        dbCmd.Connection.Open();
                        dbCmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
                        dbCmd.Connection.Close();
not working

also you don't

DELETE logo .. delete deletes the entire row...

it would just be

"DELETE FROM CustDet where CustDetRunID=4";

ok then you want to update (as I had said in your post you said that you wanted to delete it so there was confusion as to what you were trying to do). Now if you want further help you will need to provide other information (as I described above). Your update could not be working for many reasons .. The further information will let us know which reason it is not working.
