i dont get any errors
it is just not inserting the record.

If I add the the record to the datable first it will work. Like:

   ................
        param = cmd.Parameters.Add("@CPhone", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 13, "CPhone")
        param.SourceVersion = DataRowVersion.Original
        param.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input

       ' --HERE ADD RECORD TO THE DATATABLE.
        ds.Customers.Row.Add(ID_HERE,"NAME","PHONE")
        '------- ADDING THE LINE ABOVE IT WORKS. THE RECORD IS INSERTED INTO THE DATABASE      
         da.InsertCommand = cmd
        da.Update(ds.Customers)

So, is that how it should work? do i have to add it first to the datatble??

Yes, because the datatable will be used through the dataadapter to see which rows are added, deleted, changed, ...
