I want to use a parameter with a data adapter.  I have this code .. but the stored procedure spReturnValues has a parameter that I want to pass something to.  Could somebody let me know how to best do that?


        Dim DA As New SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter("spReturnValues ", Connection)

        Dim DS As New DataSet()
        DA.Fill(DS, "values")

Dim DA As New SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter("spReturnValues ", Connection)
DA .SelectCommand.Parameters("YourParameterName").Value = parameterValue

Dim DS As New DataSet()
DA.Fill(DS, "values")

something like this:

Dim command As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("spReturnValues", connection)
' Add the parameters for the SelectCommand.
command.Parameters.Add("@Country", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 15)
command.Parameters.Add("@City", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 15)

Dim DA As New SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter(command)
Dim DS As New DataSet()
DA.Fill(DS, "values")

I ran this code:


  Dim command As SqlClient.SqlCommand = New SqlClient.SqlCommand("spReturnSpecificCategoryDetails ", Connection)
        ' Add the parameters for the SelectCommand.
        command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Category_ID", CategoryID)

        Dim DA As New SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter(command)
        Dim DS As New DataSet()
        DA.Fill(DS, "Category")


And got a error:

Procedure or function 'spReturnSpecific CategoryDetails' expects parameter '@Category_ID', which was not supplied.

lets try this:

command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Category_ID", CategoryID)
-->
command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Category_ID", 1)

maybe it works, if it works, check the value of CategoryID before this code, assign a value first...

I forgot this very important line of code:

command.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
