Hi guys,


I am using vb.net and access 2010 database.

I am using an insert statement to send a double value from a grid-view cell to an access database.

The cell contains a double value.

The problem is i am able to send the values with a decimal next to every number which has two zeros following it:

Example:

10.00 , 25.00 , 100.00 (i.e. when i input a number with the decimal point and the following numbers with two consecutive zeros, there is no problem in sending the values to the database using the sql.)

but when i put in any number other than the two zeros after the decimal point such as 10.12, 10.52, 52.41, then i get the following error from the try catch block.

number of query values and destination fields are not the same

this is the way i am using the sql:

dim dblCashIn as double


sql = insert into tblBank (cashInCome) values (dblCashIn);

and i use the executenonquery command to insert the data into the database.

Thanks in advance.

And the column type of the MS Access table is set to double also???  For instance it wouldn't work if it was set to a number of type Integer...

Try enclosing the value in single quotes

sql = insert into tblBank (cashInCome) values ('dblCashIn');

As long as the column is set to the proper amount of digits to the right of the decimal point, you should be able to insert the values, can you set the variable as currency from the beginning?  If so, it should work for you then.

If not, then perhaps you need to convert the double values to currency first...
The following link has some info on those functions.

Have you considered creating a parameterized query? It should take care of converting the value for Access on your behalf.

For example:

Using con As New OleDbConnection("[your con string]")
    Using cmd As new OleDBCommand("insert into tblBank (cashInCome) values (?)", con)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@someArbitraryName", dblCashIn)

        con.Open()
        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
    End Using
End Using

Open in new window


For OleDB, you use a question mark as a placeholder for each parameter you want to add. When you add parameters to the Command object, add them in the order they would naturally appear within the query (left-to-right).

The accepted answer cannot be the solution.
It will fail trying to insert the string "dblCashIn" into a the numeric field cashInCome.

You must insert a string expression in the SQL statement, and Str is exactly for this because it always converts the decimal char to a dot:

sql = "insert into tblBank (cashInCome) values (" & Str(dblCashIn) & ");"
