I am trying to use a Details view to display records from a datasource that I'd like to update.  When i click on the commandfield "update"  nothing is happening.  It looks like it does something but nothing is edite/updated in the  the Database.   Is there some poperties that must be set to ensure that the update works.  If not,  How do i get this to work.

My Updatecommand code is below

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:cmConnectionString %>"
        SelectCommand="Select cm, FName, LName, Company, Address1, Address2, City, State, Zip, hphone, wphone, Fax, pname, SN, HomeEmail, eoptGeneral, eoptService, eoptMarketing, XL_Club, mk, pdate, sc From vcm  where cm= @ID union all Select  cm, FName, LName, Company, Address1, Address2, City, State, Zip, hphone, wphone, Fax, pname, SN, HomeEmail, eoptGeneral, eoptService, eoptMarketing, XL_Club, mk, pdate, sc  From vPSCust_Product where cm=@ID"
        UpdateCommand="UPDATE [tblcm] SET [Lname]=@lname, [Fname]=@fname, [hphone]=@phone, [wphone]=@wphone, [Homeemail]=@emailaddress, [address1]=@address,  [address2]=@address2, [city]=@city, [state]=@state, [zip]=@zip, [company]=@company, [Fax]=@fax, [pname]=@model, [SN]=@mod, [eoptGeneral]=@eoptgeneral, [eoptService]=@eoptservice, [eoptMarketing]=@eoptmarketing, [XL_Club] = @xlclub, [mk]= mk, [pdate]=@pdate, [sc]=@scustid  WHERE cm =@ID">
            <asp:QueryStringParameter Name="ID" QueryStringField="ID" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="lname" Type="String" />

            <asp:Parameter Name="scustid" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="ID" Type="Int32"  />

If you're not getting any errors back, then the first thing I would check is that you are locating a record to update:

WHERE cm =@ID  <-- is @ID set to a valid record?

I checked that and there is a valid record I am thinking that somehow in the .aspx page the ID is not passed correctly and I cannot see why. I am passing the ID from a differnet page.  See code below

  <asp:HyperLinkField  DataNavigateUrlFields="CM" DataNavigateUrlFormatString="updatecustomer.aspx?id={0}"
                    Text="EDIT"  NavigateUrl="updatecustomer.aspx?id={0}" DataTextFormatString="{0} ">
                <ControlStyle Font-Bold="True"  />

I was able to get some fields to update but for some reason the majority of fields are not updating.  Is there a property I need to set?

I was able to answer my own question.  I am so new to this I did not realize that the parameter name being passed should be the same as the db field name in my instance.  When i changed the names it worked fine.

Please close this question.
