Unable to update a SQL table with form data....here is what i got. Thought maybe another set of eyes would help me out here.

Thanks!
protected void SubmitButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

    {

        SqlConnection conn;

        SqlCommand comm;



        

        string connectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString;



        conn = new SqlConnection(connectionString);

        comm = new SqlCommand(

            "INSERT INTO contactForm(mailID,firstName,lastName,company,title,email,inquiry,interests,dateCreated) VALUES (@mailID,@firstName,@lastName,@company,@title,@email,@inquiry,@interests,@dateCreated)", conn);



        comm.Parameters.Add("mailID", SqlDbType.Int);

        comm.Parameters["mailID"].Value = hiddenID.Text;



        comm.Parameters.Add("@firstName", System.Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 50);

        comm.Parameters["@firstName"].Value = txtFirstName.Text;



        comm.Parameters.Add("@lastName", System.Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 50);

        comm.Parameters["@lastName"].Value = txtLastName.Text;



        comm.Parameters.Add("@company", System.Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 50);

        comm.Parameters["@company"].Value = txtCompanyName.Text;



        comm.Parameters.Add("@title", System.Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 50);

        comm.Parameters["@title"].Value = txtTitle.Text;



        comm.Parameters.Add("@email", System.Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 70);

        comm.Parameters["@email"].Value = txtEmail.Text;   



        comm.Parameters.Add("@inquiry", System.Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 70);

        comm.Parameters["@inquiry"].Value = txtInquiry.Text; 



        comm.Parameters.Add("@interests", System.Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 200);

        comm.Parameters["@interests"].Value = txtInterests.Text;



        comm.Parameters.Add("@dateCreated", System.Data.SqlDbType.DateTime);

        comm.Parameters["@dateCreated"].Value = txtHiddenDate.Text; 



        try



        {

            conn.Open();

            comm.ExecuteNonQuery();

           

           

        }

        catch

        {

            this.MessageLabel.Text = "There was an error updating the selected page content!<br />";

            

        }

        finally

        {

            conn.Close();

        }

        

        

    }

1: looks you need @maildId here:
comm.Parameters.Add("mailID", SqlDbType.Int);
comm.Parameters["mailID"].Value = hiddenID.Text;

2nd change your catch block to catch real exception like:

catch(Exception ex)
        {
            this.MessageLabel.Text = "There was an error updating the selected page content!<br />" + ex.Message;
           
        }

Thanks Sami,

Can't believe I missed the @ for mailID..thanks for pointing that out.

Also, adding the real exception enabled me to find the problem..

the parameter for @mailID is a Primary Key which is incremental
and @dateCreated is auto populated with the getnow() value.

I removed those, and success!

Thanks for that extra set of eyes..!!
