Unassigned Local Variable??

Experts,

In the attached method, I'm getting an "unassigned local variable" on this line:

        thisQuery.Append(" SET " + fieldName + "=" + incrementedFieldValue.ToString());

It's referring to the incrementedFieldValue vairable, which is clearly defined at the top of the method and assigned a value in the switch statement.  What am I missing?

public static void IncrementFieldValue(string connectionString, string tableName, string fieldName, string condition, int incrementValue, string dataType)
    {
 
        int initialFieldValue;
        int incrementedFieldValue;
 
        switch (dataType)
        {
            case "int":
                initialFieldValue = GetDBIntFieldValue(connectionString, tableName, fieldName, "");
                incrementedFieldValue = initialFieldValue + Convert.ToInt32(incrementValue);
                break;
        }
 
 
        StringBuilder thisQuery = new StringBuilder();
        thisQuery.Append("UPDATE " + tableName);
        thisQuery.Append(" SET " + fieldName + "=" + incrementedFieldValue.ToString());
        if (condition.Length > 0)
            thisQuery.Append(" WHERE " + condition);
 
 
        SqlConnection thisConnection = new SqlConnection(connectionString);
        thisConnection.Open();
        SqlCommand thisCommand = new SqlCommand(thisQuery.ToString(), thisConnection);
        int returned = thisCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();
        thisConnection.Close();
 
 
    }

but in case your datatype is not INT, your variable remains unset. Initialize it when you declare it.
