You have to specify update command for the dataadapter.Just look into attached code.I got it from Internet.
using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
 
   class PropagateChanges {
      static void Main(){
         string connString = "server=(local)\\SQLEXPRESS;database=MyDatabase;Integrated Security=SSPI";
         string qry = @"select * from employee ";
         string upd = @"update employee set firstname = @firstname where id = @id";
 
         SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(connString);
 
         try {
            SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter();
            da.SelectCommand = new SqlCommand(qry, conn);
 
            DataSet ds = new DataSet();   
            da.Fill(ds, "employee");
 
            DataTable dt = ds.Tables["employee"];
 
            dt.Rows[0]["firstname"] = "W";
 
            foreach (DataRow row in dt.Rows){
               Console.WriteLine(
                  "{0} {1}",
                  row["firstname"].ToString().PadRight(15),
                  row["lastname"].ToString().PadLeft(25));
            }
 
            // Update employees
            SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(upd, conn);
            cmd.Parameters.Add("@firstname",SqlDbType.NVarChar,15, "firstname");
            SqlParameter parm = cmd.Parameters.Add("@id",SqlDbType.Int,4,"id");
            parm.SourceVersion = DataRowVersion.Original;
            da.UpdateCommand = cmd;
            da.Update(ds, "employee");
         } catch(Exception e) {
            Console.WriteLine("Error: " + e);
         } finally {
            conn.Close();
         }
      }  
   }

Or If you use CommandBuilder, it will automatically take care of update statement. Please check the link

My Bad. What is the SQL query you are using at command object?

And also do you have to specify shotID?

Is SHOTID Primary Key?It seems commandbuilder works only when there is unique key values. Please look into your ShotID values during run time and also look into Update statement using
cmdBuilder.GetUpdateCommand.CommandText to know what is the update command that is getting.

this is the sql statement i run at form load
ShotID is quiet misleading here (sorry about that), it isnt a primary key  but just an increment of the shots taken.

conn.ConnectionString = ConnStr
        conn.Open()
        Dim sql As String = "SELECT * From tblShot"
        da = New SqlCeDataAdapter(sql, conn)

Then CommandBuilder doesnt work for it. You have to manually give the update statement for the adapter with parameters like the code I have given on the top.
