vb.net parameterized query fails looking for existing parameter

I get the following error on the following code at (cmd.executenonquery) and can't see the problem:

Parameterized Query '(@TS datetime,@M varchar(300),@H varchar(300),@A varchar(300),@M' expects parameter @TS, which was not supplied.

The code is in the code snippet bit.

I have checked the cmd object at the point of failure and it has 10 parameters, one of which is indeed the one shown in the error.

Any help appreciated - even if its just telling me what I have obviously missed!!

I suggest you to use the : cmd.Parametes.AddWithValue (@name, _value_) function instead.  It worked really fine for me!

Hope this helps!
