I have the following query;

Dim SQLQuery As String = "Insert Into Hardware (ID, CSName) VALUES ('" "', '" CSNameNode "')"

I am getting "expected end of statement" error.... I cannot see what is wrong with this query.

Hi, you need to concatenate the string with the CSNameNode string using the & operator:

   Dim SQLQuery As String = "Insert Into Hardware (ID, CSName) VALUES (' ', '" & CSNameNode & "')"

Is ID an auto incremenet field in your database? If so you don't need to include it in the insert statement:

   Dim SQLQuery As String = "Insert Into Hardware (CSName) VALUES ('" & CSNameNode & "')"

Dim SQLQuery As String = "Insert Into Hardware (ID, CSName) VALUES (' ', '" & CSNameNode.InnerText & "')"

or with the other sql query:

Dim SQLQuery As String = "Insert Into Hardware (CSName) VALUES ('" & CSNameNode.InnerText & "')"
