Need help with my ADO.Net SQL query to a SQL Server

Hi, I'm having issues getting my query to work. My update query works fine:
command.CommandText = "UPDATE [dbo].[Customers] SET [ContactName] = @ContactName, [ContactTitle] = @ContactTitle, [PostalCode] = @PostalCode, [Country] = @Country, [Phone] = @Phone WHERE (([ContactName] = @Original_ContactName) AND ([ContactTitle] = @Original_ContactTitle) AND ([PostalCode] = @Original_PostalCode) AND ([Country] = @Original_Country) AND ([Phone] = @Original_Phone))";

Open in new window

However, my Insert query keeps spitting out errors:
command.CommandText = "INSERT INTO [dbo].[Customers](ContactName,ContactTitle,PostalCode,Country,Phone) VALUES ([ContactName] = @ContactName, [ContactTitle] = @ContactTitle, [PostalCode] = @PostalCode, [Country] = @Country, [Phone] = @Phone)";

Open in new window

Can someone please help me correct my insert code?

In the VALUES clause, ditch all the "[XXX] =" bits, and just keep the "@XXX" bits.

command.CommandText = "INSERT INTO [dbo].[Customers](ContactName,ContactTitle,PostalCode,Country,Phone) VALUES (@ContactName, @ContactTitle, @PostalCode, @Country, @Phone)";

Open in new window

Spits out the following error:

The parameterized query '(@ContactName nvarchar(10),@ContactTitle nvarchar(4000),@PostalC' expects the parameter '@ContactTitle', which was not supplied.

Btw, I should probably mention that I'm using the Northwind database.

To your SqlCommand object are you adding a SqlParameter object which has a parameter name of "@ContactTitle"? If so, make sure the variable which holds the data you want to send to the DB is not null. If you want to insert a NULL into the DB, then you will have to add logic to send DBNull.Value instead. (DBNull.Value represents the concept of database NULL, not null as in C#.)

Turned out that I wasn't filling in all of the necessary textboxes. I kept on get similar errors until they were all filled, but now I get:

Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'CustomerID', table 'Northwind.dbo.Customers'; column does not allow nulls. INSERT fails.
The statement has been terminated.


Shouldn't the database create a key automatically?

You have set up the Customers column to not accept NULL as a valid value, and I'm guessing you did not set a default value for the column (if nothing is explicitly passed for this column). You must supply a value for this column, or change the column definition to have a default value.
