Hi,
Im trying to provide end users to be able to manipuate with data using axspreadsheet.
I successfully loaded data from db into axspreadsheet but when I tried to update changes made by end user against db then nothing happened.
Can someone help me to find solution for the problem...
Code below....
Thanks in advance
Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
        AxSpreadsheet1.Worksheets(1).Cells.Clear()
        AxSpreadsheet1.Worksheets(1).Name = "MyWorksheet"
        AxSpreadsheet1.Worksheets(1).StandardWidth = 25
        Dim connect As New Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(My.Settings.Connection)
        Dim cmd As New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand
        Dim k As Integer
        cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM TreeViewItems"
        cmd.Connection = connect
        If connect.State = ConnectionState.Closed Then connect.Open()


        da = New Data.SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
        Dim commandBuilder As New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommandBuilder(da)
        da.InsertCommand = commandBuilder.GetInsertCommand()
        da.UpdateCommand = commandBuilder.GetUpdateCommand()
        da.DeleteCommand = commandBuilder.GetDeleteCommand()



        da.Fill(ds)

        ProgressBar1.Value = 0
        ProgressBar1.Maximum = ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count
        k = 1

        For ro As Integer = 0 To ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
            k += 1
            For cl As Integer = 0 To ds.Tables(0).Columns.Count - 1
                AxSpreadsheet1.Worksheets(1).Cells(k, cl + 1) =
                ds.Tables(0).Rows(ro).Item(cl).ToString
            Next
            ProgressBar1.Value += 1
        Next


    End Sub

    Private Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button3.Click
        Me.da.Update(ds.Tables(0))
        MsgBox("OK")
    End Sub
End Class

Its because you are populating the speadsheet from the dataset but you are not writing it back to the dataset. The dataset is in same condition as it was when filled.

You would need to reverese this loop

  For ro As Integer = 0 To ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
            k += 1
            For cl As Integer = 0 To ds.Tables(0).Columns.Count - 1
                   ds.Tables(0).Rows(ro).Item(cl) =      AxSpreadsheet1.Worksheets(1).Cells(k, cl + 1)
            Next
            ProgressBar1.Value += 1
        Next



so that the new values from spreadsheet are added to the dataset.

Can you not use a DataGridView?

Hi,
Yes I can use DataGridView but for several reasons I have decided to use axspreadsheet. Why?
First, I'm trying to make application for controlling budgeting which is currently done in excel...
Somehow, I wanted to stay close to excel that users which make budget are very close to...
Secondly, axspreadsheet (as far as I'm concerned) gives nice possibility to make easy sum of data, data aligement, filter data etc which also can be done with DGV but in harder way for me to make working...

What is your opinion considering above...what would you prefer more in this case....
Maybe i'm wrong when I have decided to use axspreadsheet?!:)

I can not comment on your choice really. Depends on how resistent to change your users are. DataGridView would make your life easier though.
