I have two text boxes that may or may not be filled in, depending on a RadioButtonList selection.

Below .Value = "NULL" doesn't work.  How can I send NULL to the SQL 2005 field?
If radStateContract.SelectedIndex = 0 Then

      DBCmd.Parameters.Add("@StateContractNo", SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = txtStateContractNo.Text

      DBCmd.Parameters.Add("@StateContractEndDate", SqlDbType.SmallDateTime).Value = CType(txtStateContractEndDate.Text, DateTime)

Else

      DBCmd.Parameters.Add("@StateContractNo", SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = "N/A"

      DBCmd.Parameters.Add("@StateContractEndDate", SqlDbType.SmallDateTime).Value = "NULL"

End If

Hi,

You can use the dbnull object..

DBCmd.Parameters.Add("@StateContractEndDate", SqlDbType.SmallDateTime).Value = DBNull.Value;

I hope this helps,

Yes.  Wonderful.  Thank you.  I had tried "= DBNull" but didn't think to add ".Value".  Yeah, I'm a beginner.  ;-)
