                    OracleCommand oraCmd = new OracleCommand();
                    try
                    {
                        sqlText = "UPDATE pc.pcy set " +
                                " PAC = " + PcyAss + ", " +
                                " PPeriodStart = '" + To_date(PPeriodStart, "yyyymmdd") + "', " +
                                " PPeriodEnd = '" + To_date(PPeriodEnd, "yyyymmdd") + "'

You can use bind variables, and add parameters via OracleCommand.Parameters.Add

Somethign like this (untested), I don't have my VS up with a project to test.
