How do I create an SQL query to save changes in my database?

I have a database table called table1 which I have loaded into a visual basic program. When I dragged the icon from the data sources window to the form and created the datagrid, a toolbar was created with a save button on. However, when I click it to save changes, the changes are not actually saved.

I navigated to the properties of my tableadapter and found that the updatecommand box was empty (so I assume the update command does nothing when called in a program).

What would I need to put in a new query to save changes to my database? It only has 2 columns: Episode and Rating.

Thanks

just add an index to the table, make it a unique key.

But the updatecommand field is empty in the properties. I must have deleted it when I was trying to get it to work. If the field is empty then when I do tableadapter.update it will execute an empty command right?

You will probably have to start over.

First add a Unique key to your table like suggested by the previous person,
then go back though the steps and you will end up with something like the following in your forms code..

    Private Sub PendingeventsBindingNavigatorSaveItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles PendingeventsBindingNavigatorSaveItem.Click
        Me.Validate()
        Me.PendingeventsBindingSource.EndEdit()
        Me.PendingeventsTableAdapter.Update(Me.Sh_galaxy1DataSet.pendingevents)

    End Sub
