Yes I am trying to pass a query string parameter which is my batchId field in my database to my crystal report.

my storeprocedure i hard code to
Select * From dbo.SalesItems where BatchId = '2' i can see the information in that column
but when i Select * From dbo.SalesItems where BatchId =@batchId I just see the header not the information.

below I tried to pass the parameter both ways but only 2nd passes the header but only if I use the Select * From dbo.SalesItems where BatchId = '2'

1st does not pass anything and the viewer comes up with error.
no links just a good coder or debugger.
1st  
MyCommand.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@BatchId", SqlDbType.BigInt)).Value = Request.QueryString("id")
 
 
2nd
MyCommand.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@BatchId", SqlDbType.BigInt)).Value = BatchId

There are two things to consider.  What datatype is in your SQL Sproc?  Is it a big int?  If not, then you need to make your VB code match.

Second, make sure the name of your VB parameter ("@BatchId") matches the exact name of the input parameter in your sproc.

Are you able to run your sproc in query analyzer?  What happens when you pass in a value through that (If you are able)?

I would debug the sproc 1st and your VB code 2nd.

        Dim myDA As New SqlDataAdapter
        Dim myDS As New Dataset78 ' Dataset created
        Dim UserId As String
        Try
 
 
            myConnection = New SqlConnection(Application("A1SConnString"))
            MyCommand.Connection = myConnection
            MyCommand.CommandText = "spA1SGetSalesbatchReport" 'Stored Procedure
            MyCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            MyCommand.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@BatchID", SqlDbType.BigInt)).Value = BatchId
 
            myDA.SelectCommand = MyCommand
 
 
            myDA.Fill(myDS, "SalesItems")
            rpt.SetDataSource(myDS)
            myConnection.Open()
            CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = rpt ' Connects to viewer using rpt
 
        Catch Excep As Exception

Can you post your sproc code??  I want to see how that is.  That is where the issue is, I think.

what viewer are you talking about when you state "but in the viewer does not return the batchId"

Are you meaning that the column headers are returned, but that the data doesn't come back??

It looks like you issue is a casting.  I am guessing that you batchid in the SalesItem table is a int or varchar and that it is not a bigint.  It looks like it works when you make it like an int.  Does it work if you do the following " Select * From dbo.SalesItems where BatchId = 2 "? (Without the quotes)

Do you know what the batchid in the table is?  I am guessing that it is not a Bigint field.  I am betting that if you change the Sproc from bigint to int that it will work just fine.

nO THAT DID NOT WORK but maybe this will help I think I have to create the stored procedure as innerjoin
or relationship. ok there is 2 databases, when i create a category it generates the batchid and tells me the userid witch is the salesbatch database. then when i click on that category it opens with the storeId and batchid querystring that was generated from the category created. So maybe i need to have a connection between these 2 tables. so how would i right a connection between these 2 tables in a stored procedure, its been a while.

I will end this if you can tell me where i can add userId from one database

select BatchId from SalesBatch
Union
select BatchId from Salesitems


select BatchId, userID from SalesBatch
Union
select BatchId from Salesitems

not sure how this goes

To get a connection in the 2 tables, you need to use the following syntax:

select *
from SalesBatch SB
join Salesitems SI on SB.BatchId = SI.BatchID

That will get the 2 tables joined together.  Then you can add a where clause etc.

To use the UNION clause, like up above, the select fields from table 1 must match (exactly) to the select fields from table 2.  But they don't jon the tables.

So to get the userid you can do the following:

select SB.BatchId, SB.userID
from SalesBatch SB
join Salesitems SI on SB.BatchId = SI.BatchID

well I found out it has to be on the same page. so last question how do i make a session var to carry the querystring with me to any page or file.

So for instance if the page is Items.aspx?id=41096

how can i store this on my page that this is the query string.?
