I am trying to build a if statement around a search variable for sql.  Basically, I want to make the variable null if the user does not key in any search criteria, if they do then I assign it to the scalar variable.  When I try to to set the variable to null I get a the above error message.  Here is my code where it occurs.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Kenny


protected SqlDataAdapter CreateProviderInsAdapter()
    {
        SqlConnection connProvIns = new SqlConnection(ConnString);
        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(SearchProviderIns, connProvIns);
       

        if
            (txtSearchInsur.Text != "")
            cmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@SearchInsur", txtSearchInsur.Text));
        else
            string @SearchInsur = "";    <<<<<--------------<<<<<  Error occurs here



        SqlDataAdapter sqlDAphyins = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
        sqlDAphyins.FillSchema(HDSDataSet, SchemaType.Mapped, "PHYSINS");
        sqlDAphyins.Fill(HDSDataSet, "PHYSINS");
        return sqlDAphyins;
    }

>string @SearchInsur = "";    
what is that statement to be doing, actually?


I assume you want to do this:

if (txtSearchInsur.Text != "")
   cmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@SearchInsur", txtSearchInsur.Text));
else
   cmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@SearchInsur", string.Empty));

in which case, you don't need the if() else at all?...

just that statement will do fine:
cmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@SearchInsur", txtSearchInsur.Text));
