Problem with OdbcDataAdapter and OdbcCommandBuilder

Hi,

I'm trying to use an OdbcCommandBuilder to build an Insert statement for a table.

      OdbcDataAdapter adapter = new OdbcDataAdapter(sqlSelect, connectionObject);
      OdbcCommandBuilder cmdBuilder = new OdbcCommandBuilder(adapter);
      OpenConnection();
      adapter.InsertCommand = cmdBuilder.GetInsertCommand();
      return adapter;

When I get to the "adapter.InsertCommand = " statement, I get the following error:

"ERROR - no error information available"

I've used this connection object elsewhere to read info from a table, so I know the connection object is ok.

Is there any way I can get more info on what's happening? Or can anyone suggest any possible solutions?

Many thanks

try this to see if it's working. Also make sure that table has a primary key(id column) for the update to work

           OdbcConnection connectionObject = new OdbcConnection();
            OdbcDataAdapter adapter = new OdbcDataAdapter(connectionObject);
            adapter.SelectCommand = new OdbcCommand(sqlSelect);
            OdbcCommandBuilder cmdBuilder = new OdbcCommandBuilder(adapter);
            connectionObject.Open();

            DataSet ds = new DataSet();
            adapter.Fill(ds, myTableName);
//this is to see if the update,delete,insert commands are correct
            txtUpdate.Text = cmdBuilder .GetUpdateCommand().CommandText
            txtDelete.Text = cmdBuilder .GetDeleteCommand().CommandText
            txtInsert.Text = cmdBuilder .GetInsertCommand().CommandText


            adapter.Update(ds, myTableName);
            connectionObject.Close();
            return adapter;
