I've tried everything!!!! I have other pages that work fine. This refuses to work!

Here is the RowUpdating Event Code.

        SqlDataSource1.UpdateParameters("REG_ID").DefaultValue = Session("RegID")
        SqlDataSource1.UpdateParameters("CSA_Major_Topic_Category_ID").DefaultValue = 1
        SqlDataSource1.UpdateParameters("CSA_Specialized_Service_Description").DefaultValue = "Mike"
        SqlDataSource1.UpdateParameters("CSA_Distance_Limitation_Applies").DefaultValue = False
        SqlDataSource1.UpdateParameters("CSA_Service_Charge_By_Type_ID").DefaultValue = 1
        SqlDataSource1.UpdateParameters("CSA_Service_Charge_Amount").DefaultValue = 2
        SqlDataSource1.UpdateParameters("CSA_Specialized_Service_Keywords_Entered").DefaultValue = False

(I added the hard values because i know they work.  If i load those into the Stored proc directly they work fine!)

Here the Params from asp:

                        <asp:Parameter Name="ID" Type="Decimal" />
                        <asp:Parameter Name="REG_ID" Type="Decimal" />
                        <asp:Parameter Name="CSA_Major_Topic_Category_ID" Type="Decimal" />
                        <asp:Parameter Name="CSA_Specialized_Service_Description" Type="String" />
                        <asp:Parameter Name="CSA_Distance_Limitation_Applies" Type="Boolean" />
                        <asp:Parameter Name="CSA_Service_Charge_By_Type_ID" Type="Decimal" />
                        <asp:Parameter Name="CSA_Service_Charge_Amount" Type="Decimal" />
                        <asp:Parameter Name="CSA_Specialized_Service_Keywords_Entered" Type="Boolean" />

No matter what i do i get "System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format."

The stack trace is useless!!! I'll post if you think it'll help

I'm at a loss as to even figure out how to begin to figure this one out.  I've tried everything i know.
500 points cause this is URGENT! So urgent in fact i'd give 1000 points if i could!
