Are you sure you do not need to UPDATE an existing record?
UPDATE Customers
SET bVisible = True WHERE CustomerID = 'MYCOMPANY'

INSERT adds a new record, Also, if CustomerID is text, you need quotes as shown.

The WHERE clause is what made me think you were working with existing records (UPDATE) versus adding new ones (INSERT)

Do you have your CustomerId in this box, RemoveTextBox.Text ?
give a try.
"UPDATE Customers SET bVisible=true WHERE CustomerID ='" + RemoveTextBox.Text + "'";

Can you post the full line of code?

"UPDATE Customers SET bVisible=true WHERE (CustomerID) ='" + RemoveTextBox.Text + "'";

Why is there a semicolon outside of the parentheses?


Give this a shot:

"UPDATE Customers SET bVisible=true WHERE (CustomerID) ='" + RemoveTextBox.Text + "';"

Then check the actual value held in RemoveTextBox.Text.

If it is not updating the records, it sounds like you do not have any records where CustomerID matches RemoveTextBox.Text.

Finally, please verify whether CustomerID is text or numeric in your database.

Also, is your user interface written in VB or Access VBA?

I found the error. I used RemoveTextBox..........when I should have used another named textbox. I had copy the text so the clue was from mbizup:  :-)
