Why does Update and Delete not work?

I am trying my first test in ASP.Net, but have a problem with the delete and update commands. The Select and Insert routines work as expected.

1. When I click the Edit link, it opens the editable view as planned.  But when I click the Update link, it closes the editable form without complaining, but does not update the data.  

2. When I click the Delete link, an error screen appears with the message "Must declare the scalar variable "@id".  But the id parameter is declared in the <DeleteParameters> section.

Any suggestions on either problem?  The page code is listed below.

Thanks.

The SqlDataSource object can derive parameters from the SelectCommand.  Try not specifying the InsertCommand, DeleteCommand, and UpdateCommand, and their matching parameter lists.

Bob, I tried an example of using a SQLDataSource without the InsertCommand, DeleteCommand, and UpdateCommand (or their parameters).  I then added a DetailsView and AutoGenerate options for insert, delete and update buttons to True to display the links for these functions.  But when I click any of these, I receive the error message "Updating is not supported by data source 'SqlDataSource1' unless UpdateCommand [or DeleteCommand or InsertCommand] is specified. "  Any ideas?

I found the answer in searching through MS documents.  I had to set the ConflictDetection property for the SQLDataSource1 to CompareAllValues, and also the OldValuesParameterFormatString property to old_{0}.  Then I could change the command strings for the update and delete commands to:
DeleteCommand="DELETE Members WHERE id=@old_id"
UpdateCommand="UPDATE Members SET First_Name=@First_Name, ... WHERE id=@old_id"

Now it works.  But TheLearnedOne is correct that I could delete the parameters for all the commands.
