Save DataGrid Edited data to MS Access Database

Visual Studio 2005
Visual Basic.net

I have a DataGrid that has displayed some data to a user. (it reads an XML file)
The User has the ability to edit the individual cells on the datagrid.

Once they are done I want them to be able to click a button and write all the datagrid data to a MS Access database.

Database is called: "OnlineOrders.mdb"
Table is called "Orders"

There are 5 Fields: OrderID, Product, Quantity, Cost, Description
4 of which correspond to the displayed DataGrid colums (Product, Quantity, Cost, Description)  
OrderID is stored asa variable by itself.

Each row will need to be inserted into the database
I know what the SQL should be:
"Insert  into Orders (OrderID, Product, Quantity, Cost, Description) Values (''+OrderID+', '"+Product+"', '"+Quantity+"', '"+Cost+"', '"+Description+"')"

But I do not know how to setup the database code in VB.net orhow to loop through the rows.
I need help with the data setup and then looping through the datagrid contents.

Hi,
You can write code similar to the following.


Dim dbcon as new oledbconnection("connectionstring")
dbcon.open
dim dbcmd as new oledbcommand
dbcmd.connection=dbcon
for i as integer = 0 to dgrid.rows.count - 1
    dbcmd.commandtext="Insert Into Orders(OrderID, Product, Quantity, Cost, Description) Values(" & i+1 & ", '" & dgrid.rows.item(i).item(0) & "', " & dgrid.rows.item(i).item(1) & ", " & dgrid.rows.item(i).item(2) & ", '" & dgrid.rows.item(i).item(3) & "')"
dbcmd.executenonquery()
next
dbcmd.dispose
dbcon.close
dbcon.dispose

Open in new window

I get:
Error 2 'item' is not a member of 'System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewRow'.
Refering to this part: dgrid.rows.item(i).item(0)

Testing it out when I type "dgrid.rows.item(i)." the code suggest box that pops up does not give "item" as an option in the list

I figured it out thank you..

it was to use it this way:
dgrid.Rows.Item(i).Cells(0).Value
