Hello,

Is there a way to add data to a sql table from a datagrrid without writing every single column.

The situation is; I have a query which is a stored procedure. This outputs the results into a datagrid in vb 2005. when I edit a row in this datagrid i want to write a statement that updates the changes. Currently my code looks somthing like this:

UPDATE tablename
SET Name = Datagridview.Item(0,1).Value, Address = Datagridview.Item(0,2).Value, Postcode = ......etc  
WHERE Name = "Me"

I want some thing like

UPDATE tablename
SET rowdata
WHERE Name = "Me"

Thanks

Does the DataGridView columns correspond with table column names in any way?

Yes they do as the table is generated by a query run on that table.

Here is what I was thinking:

1) If you are bound to the DataTable, and you have a DataAdapter, than making changes on the DataGridView should update the DataTable.  Then all you have to do is call the DataAdapter.Update method.

2) If you want to stick to the dynamic SQL route, then this is what I was alluding to before:

        Dim setClause As New System.Text.StringBuilder()

        For index As Integer = 0 To DataGrid1.Columns.Count - 1

            Dim column As DataGridViewColumn = DataGrid1.Columns(index)
            setClause.AppendFormat("{0} = '{1}'", column.Name, DataGrid1(index, 0).Value)

        Next index

        Dim commandText As String = String.Format( _
         "UPDATE tablename " & _
         "  SET Name = {0}" & _
         "  WHERE Name = '{1}'", setClause.ToString(), "Bob")
