I'm getting this error when trying to get the name of a file to upload then insert the text into a table in my db.

Error: String or binary data would be truncated. Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'imgID'

i want to get the name of the files from these two file upload controls.

cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@img1", FileUpload1.ToString)
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@img2", FileUpload2.ToString)
