Hello experts,

I am trying to secure my code by using try catch blocks where necessary. Here is a method I use:

 public int doesExist()
                conn.ConnectionString = strConn;

                cmdCheck.Connection = conn;
                cmdCheck.CommandText = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["spCheck"];
                cmdCheck.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
                int iq = (int)cmdCheck.ExecuteScalar();    

               return iq;

Whenever I want to put this piece between  a try block, I get this error:

Error      5      The name 'iq' does not exist in the current context

How do I secure my code now?
