Handling System.DBNull.Value

When I'm working with an ID field on my page, I want to have it saved as -1 if it's not ever been defined as a valid ID. But when I go to save the values to the table, if they're -1, I want to save them as System.DBNull.Value.

How can I create a function to return the valid value as an integer if it's not -1, but if it is -1, to return System.DBNull.Value, so that it saves properly to the table?

thanks.

Does the column in your database allow null value?

I had requested this for deletion before your answer was posted here. but I don't mind giving you the points since they're all paid for anyway. but I had found another solution.

thanks for the reply! Maybe it will come in handy on another project.
