Updating network Access DB through DataGridView object

Greetings Experts,

I have a small application that allows users to modify data within a network Access db.  The user selects which table to update via a combo box, loads the table to the grid and can then add/delete/update the records.  Clicking the Save button will save the changes to the db.  

Upon clicking the Save button, I get the error message:  "Operation must use an updateable query."  

Any suggestions on what needs to be adjusted to get this to work properly?

    Dim strTableName As String = ""

    Private Sub cmdLoadTable_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _

        strTableName = cboTable.Text

Did you add an update query to your dataadapter?

You either need to define dataadapter.update or explicitly write an update query in your save routine.  Otherwise the select command might not have enough information to decide how to update correctly.

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/vbgeneral/thread/d84a4630-d297-4f78-9401-6862c07862f9

That article explains an explicit OLEDB command to update.

Otherwise (And I am not sure this is correct because I use SQL TableAdapter vs. DataAdapter) you can add an updatecommand property to the dataadapter with your update command text.

da.updateCommand = "update myTable set myField = " + @myField + " where myDelimiter = " + @ myDelim

jtoutou,


I copied your code snipet over exactly, and I get the same error message on this line:

"Operation must use an updateable query"
 -- Me.myDA.Update(Me.myDataSet.Tables("MyTable"))

Any suggestions?

Dim myDA As OleDbDataAdapter
Dim myDataSet As DataSet

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
    Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim con As OleDbConnection = New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=\\pbpnas1000s\product\PBPLabels\PBPBarCodeMaster.mdb;Persist Security Info=False;")
        Dim cmd As OleDbCommand = New OleDbCommand("SELECT * FROM FederalMogul", con)
        con.Open()
        myDA = New OleDbDataAdapter(cmd)
        'Here one CommandBuilder object is required.
        'It will automatically generate DeleteCommand,UpdateCommand and InsertCommand for DataAdapter object  
        Dim builder As OleDbCommandBuilder = New OleDbCommandBuilder(myDA)
        myDataSet = New DataSet()
        myDA.Fill(myDataSet, "MyTable")
        dgvBarCodeMaster.DataSource = myDataSet.Tables("MyTable").DefaultView
        con.Close()
        con = Nothing

End Sub

Private Sub cmdSave_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
    Handles cmdSave.Click

        Me.Validate()
        Me.myDA.Update(Me.myDataSet.Tables("MyTable"))
        Me.myDataSet.AcceptChanges()


End Sub

partial solution to problem...

I commented out the Option Strict On code from the beginning of the project and the code runs fine now...

Ill keep working on a proper fix, but this will suffice in the mean time.  Thanks for your help.
