I want to use my drop down selected value and text box in an update statement.  So that my new query will be
"update gp_timesheetload  set "mydropdown value" = "textbox value"
based on my where_clause string




void ClickHandler(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
 update statement goes here    
     }


string where_clause = "where company= '" + company_1 + "'and filename ='" + bach_1 + "' and weekending = '" + week_1 + "' and project='" + proj_1 + "'";
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("seLECT  distinct costcat from gp_timesheetload " + where_clause, cn);
cn.Open();
SqlDataReader rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection);
rdr.Read();

<select name="weekending" style="font-size:8pt" tabindex="1" >
<%
        while (rdr.Read())
        {
 %>       
             <option><%=rdr[0].ToString()%></option><br><br><br><br>
<%            
        }

    }  
    
  
%>
</select>


<asp:TextBox id="tb1" runat="server" />
<asp:Button id="Button1" onclick="ClickHandler" runat="server" Text="Click here to submit"></asp:Button>

Try this code.
You need to use ExecuteNonQuery() to execute an update statement
I understood that you need to update selected Dropdownlist value and TextBox value into separate columns in the table.
string connetionString = null;
SqlConnection cnn ;
SqlCommand cmd ;
string sql = null;

connetionString = "Data Source=ServerName;Initial Catalog=DatabaseName;User ID=UserName;Password=Password";
sql = "update gp_timesheetload  set dropdowncolumn = '" + myDropdown.SelectedValue + "', textboxColumn = '" + myTextBox.Text + "'";

cnn = new SqlConnection(connetionString);
try
{
    cnn.Open();
    cmd = new SqlCommand(sql, cnn);
    cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
    cmd.Dispose();
    cnn.Close();
    MessageBox.Show (" ExecuteNonQuery in SqlCommand executed !!");
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
    MessageBox.Show("Can not open connection ! ");
}

One more important thing.
You need to add WHERE condition also to the update statement. Otherwise it will update all the columns

Update the SQL Query line with your WHERE condition.
sql = "update gp_timesheetload  
set dropdowncolumn = '" + myDropdown.SelectedValue + "', 
textboxColumn = '" + myTextBox.Text + "' 
WHERE somecolumn = somevalue";

Open in new window


Note:- If required, backup your database before trying update statement.

You mean read TextBox value and Dropdownlist value to SQL Query.

That's what I shown in my previous SQLQuery attached - Is it not working ?

My control is called weekending and set dropdowncolumn = '" + myDropdown.SelectedValue + "', is not working.  This is really my main problem.  And I need to do this on the function below

void ClickHandler(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
 update statement goes here    
     }

I think you are not clear about previous comment.

The code I posted before - http:#a35114495 - put it this event
Also remember to replace the sample table name and column names I gave with your actual ones

Read once more my previous comments are let me know

That's what I said - replace the control names that I used with your real control name

For eg: If 'weekending' is the dropdownlist name, replace 'myDropdown' in my code with 'weekending'

Raj I think it did not work because I was using html control without runat = "server".  I was trying to mix asp and asp.net.  But what u gave me worked when I changed to pure asp.net controls
