Trying to make the transistion from VB6 to VB.NET 2005. I am having trouble doing the most simple task of updating the DB via a datagridview. All I'm doing is populating a datagrid on a form (which works), make a few changes on the datagrid and have it update the db.  Here's my code that does not work (I am avoiding the wizards so I can figure out what's going on):

Public Class frmInventoryMaster

    Private da As OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter
    Private cn As New OleDb.OleDbConnection
    Private strConn As String
    Private strSQL As String
    Private dt As New DataTable

'Load the datagrid on the form - this works fine  
    Private Sub frmInventoryMaster_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        strConn = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=C:\TEMP\inventory.mdb;"
        cn.ConnectionString = strConn
        cn.Open()
        strSQL = "SELECT * FROM InventoryMaster"
        da = New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(strSQL, cn)
        da.Fill(dt)
        DataGridView1.DataSource = dt

    End Sub

'Update the database with the changes made in the datagrid - this DOES NOT WORK
    Private Sub btnSave_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnSave.Click

        Try
            da.Update(dt)
            MsgBox("Update successful")
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("Update failed")
        End Try


    End Sub
End Class

Thanks,
Ken

I tried this
  dt.acceptchanges
   da.Update(dt)


and just dt.acceptchanges.

neither worked.

Hang on... you're doing great... you just missed a single line of code.

By default, the DataAdapter doesn't know how to perform the Update() method... it has to be told how.  You do that will this simple line of code:

      Dim cb as  New OleDbCommandBuilder(da)

Just place this somewhere after the DataAdapter get's instaniated.

Take a look at the following article (and downloadable VB.Net source code)... it is right on target:  http://home.hot.rr.com/graye/Articles/SavingDataADO.htm
