Hi Experts,

I have an ASP.NET/VB.NET Web Form containing an <asp:checkbox runat="server" id="chkNewsletter" /> control.

I would like to submit a 'Y' or 'N' value to the "Newsletter" bit field in a SQL database table.

Whenever the checkbox is checked and the form is submitted, I would like the value of the database field to be set to 'Y' when checked or 'N' when unchecked.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

        Dim c As Char
        If (chkNewsletter.Checked = True) Then
            c = "Y"
        Else
            c = "N"
        End If
        Dim param As SqlClient.SqlParameter
        param = New SqlParameter("input", SqlDbType.Char)
        param.Value = c
        Dim query As String
        query = "Insert into mytable(Newsletter) values('" + c + "')"
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand
        cmd.Connection = SqlConnection1
        cmd.CommandText = query
        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()

Hope a small code than above /////

If (chkNewsLetter.Checked= True)
         c="Y"
Else
         c= "N"

dim sqlcon as new sqlconnection(sqlstring)
dim sqlcom as new sqlcommand(sqlcon,"Insert into table(NewsLetter) values('"& c &"')")
sqlcom.connection.open()
sqlcom.executeScalar();
sqlcom.connection.close()
