If you get into this procedure, is the parentid variable filled or is it showing null ?

I see it now, you need to add a new parameter


OracleParameter p_parentID = New OracleParameter("PARENTID", SqlDbType.Int)
p_parentID .Direction = ParameterDirection.Input;
p_parentID .Value = PARENTID
objCommand.Parameters.Add(parentID)


       OracleCommand objCommand = new OracleCommand(@"select ID,TITLE,REPORT,(select count(*) FROM HE_GRADE_ENTRY WHERE PARENTID=sc.ID) childnodecount FROM HE_GRADE_ENTRY sc where PARENTID= :PARENTID", Connection);

OracleParameter p_parentID = New OracleParameter("PARENTID", SqlDbType.Int);
p_parentID.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input;
p_parentID.Value = PARENTID;
objCommand.Parameters.Add(parentID);

Try using Oracle Data Type like OracleType.Int32;
Example;
string sql = "SELECT * FROM Customers WHERE CustomerId = :CustomerId";
OracleCommand command = new OracleCommand(sql);
command.Parameters.Add(new OracleParameter(":CustomerId", OracleType.Int32));
command.Parameters[":CustomerId"].Value = 1;

Like I already said, you need to add a oracleParameter.

Replace this line
objCommand.Parameters.Add(":PARENTID", SqlDbType.Int).Value = PARENTID

with
command.Parameters.Add(new OracleParameter("PARENTID", SqlDbType.Int));
command.Parameters["PARENTID"].Value = PARENTID;

Hi SirReadALot,

Did you try using Oracle Data Type like OracleType.Int32;
Example;
string sql = "SELECT * FROM Customers WHERE CustomerId = :CustomerId";
OracleCommand command = new OracleCommand(sql);
command.Parameters.Add(new OracleParameter(":CustomerId", OracleType.Int32));
command.Parameters[":CustomerId"].Value = 1;

So use;
command.Parameters.Add(new OracleParameter("PARENTID", OracleType.Int32));
command.Parameters[":PARENTID"].Value = PARENTID;

it even failed with Oracle Data Type like OracleType.Int32;

string connString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["HE_WIZARD"].ConnectionString;
        OracleConnection Connection = new OracleConnection(connString);
        OracleCommand objCommand = new OracleCommand(@"select ID,TITLE,REPORT,(select count(*) FROM HE_GRADE_ENTRY WHERE PARENTID=sc.ID) childnodecount FROM HE_GRADE_ENTRY sc where PARENTID= :PARENTID", Connection);
        objCommand.Parameters.Add(new OracleParameter("PARENTID", SqlDbType.Int));
        objCommand.Parameters["PARENTID"].Value = PARENTID;
        OracleDataAdapter da = new OracleDataAdapter(objCommand);
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();

What error do you get ?
try
{
string connString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["HE_WIZARD"].ConnectionString;
        OracleConnection Connection = new OracleConnection(connString);
        OracleCommand objCommand = new OracleCommand(@"select ID,TITLE,REPORT,(select count(*) FROM HE_GRADE_ENTRY WHERE PARENTID=sc.ID) childnodecount FROM HE_GRADE_ENTRY sc where PARENTID= :PARENTID", Connection);
        objCommand.Parameters.Add(new OracleParameter("PARENTID", SqlDbType.Int));
        objCommand.Parameters["PARENTID"].Value = PARENTID;
        OracleDataAdapter da = new OracleDataAdapter(objCommand);
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        da.Fill(dt);
        PopulateNodes(dt, parentNode.ChildNodes);
}
Catch (Exception e)
{
    Messagebox.Show(e.ToString());
}

Let's try to narrow it down.

Can you try this

string connString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["HE_WIZARD"].ConnectionString;
        OracleConnection Connection = new OracleConnection(connString);
        OracleCommand objCommand = new OracleCommand(@"select ID,TITLE,REPORT,(select count(*) FROM HE_GRADE_ENTRY WHERE PARENTID=sc.ID) childnodecount FROM HE_GRADE_ENTRY sc where PARENTID= :PARENTID", Connection);


OracleParameter p_parentID = New OracleParameter("PARENTID", SqlDbType.Int)
p_parentID .Direction = ParameterDirection.Input;
p_parentID .Value = PARENTID
objCommand.Parameters.Add(parentID)


Just to see if you can create the oracleParameter or that there is something else ...
