Updating Database Table with DataGridView

Hi, I'm using VB 2005, WinForms. I have a database Table we can call (UsersList). I have a DataTable called (dtUsers) in my code that works with a DataAdapter. Together they fill a DataGridView for me to display my list of Users. - That much works well.

I would like to allow my users to make changes (Edits) to the data that they see in  the DataGridView. My problem is how do I execute the "Update" of changes back to the Table from the DataGridView.  And have the DataGridView refresh itself.

In other words, if I do the following it does not work:

dgvUserList.Update
dgvUserList.Refresh

I would like to provide my users a button for them to click and be able to save any modifications made to the data they see in the DatGridView.

Thanks for your help,
Fulano

Try this


da.Update(dtUsers) '<--- Update the dtUsers using the dataadapter.
dtUsers.AcceptChanges() '<---- Accepts the changes made.

Open in new window

Hi Jack,
I'm getting this error at the first line of code you provided [da.Update(dtUsers)].
Obviously, I changed the adapter and table names to be correct with my code.

Error:
Additional information: Update requires a valid UpdateCommand when passed DataRow collection with modified rows.

I think you are not writing the commandbuilder code for dataadapter to update the records back in database. Or might be missing some columns in commandbuilder update query thats why there comes an error.
This will help you for more details:
