Hi all

Im looking for some help in creating a function to allow me to hardcode updates into SQL. The attached code will allow me to open the DB and search the fields however its been a while since ive programmed in vb and am moving to .net so hence the .field("Name") = is a bit out of date..  :)

Any help would be great

Many Thanks
Steve

Code in use __________________________________
       Dim SQL As String = "SELECT * FROM USERINFO WHERE USERNAME = '" & txtUsername.Text & "' AND PASSWORD  = '" & CryptPass & "'"
        Dim sqlReader As SqlDataReader = CCDBC.CCDBC.RetrieveData(SQL)
 
        If sqlReader.Read Then
            With sqlReader
                MsgBox(.GetValue(1) & "   " & .GetValue(2) & "   " & .GetValue(3))
            End With
            Me.Close()
        Else
            MsgBox("Invalid Username or Password entered", MsgBoxStyle.Exclamation)
        End If
        sqlReader.Close()
        sqlReader = Nothing

        Try
            Dim cmd As SqlClient.SqlCommand = New SqlClient.SqlCommand(query, conn)
            ''CommandBehavior.CloseConnection closes the underlying connection 
            ''whenever the reader is closed
            rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)
        Catch ex As SqlClient.SqlException
            Console.WriteLine("SQL Server ERROR: " & ex.Message & " in " & ex.StackTrace)
        Catch ex As Exception
            Console.WriteLine("ERROR retrieving data: " & ex.Message)
        End Try
        RetrieveData = rdr
    End Function

please check out this tutorial:
http://webgraphics.web108.discountasp.net/HandH/AdapterUpdate.htm

it tells you to fill in a sqldataadapter, and define the UpdateCommand that will submit the sql update (or procedure) to save any changes done to the data inthe sqldataadapter...

hope this clarifies how to do things the .net way
