I have details view in insertmode by default so the user can enter some data and for it to be inserted into the DB. But i get this error when i click the insert button:

Exception Details: System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: Must declare the variable '@CompanyName'.

As you can see I have declared the vairiable as an insertitem parameter - whats wrong?
Code

I think the problem here is that you're using an ID of "CompanyName" in your TemplateField, but ALSO using that exact name in the <InsertParameters> section.  Change the IDs of your textboxes from CompanyName to companyName, and see whether that does the trick.

I already tried that - named them something completely different but still get the error.

Okay, here's the problem.  You're mixing up SQL Server syntax with OLE syntax.  With SQL server, you use the named parameters:  @CompanyName, etc.  WIth OLEDB, you can't.

With OLEDB, your string has to be:

 InsertCommand="INSERT INTO [LPlus2007UserTable] ([CompanyName], [ContactName], [Telephone], [Email]) VALUES (?,?,?,?)"

However, you're setting a SQLDataSource, and you're getting an OLEDB error.  Whichever one you're using, you have to be consistent.

Hi Si Hibbard,
If you use parameter, you need to send them in code-behind.
Try:
<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="CompanyName" Name="CName" PropertyName="Text" Type="String" />
instead of:
<asp:Parameter Name="CompanyName" Type="String" />
Regards.
