I have a stored procedure that deleted records from a table based on billdate field.  When I execute the stored procedure, it works fine.  However if I call it from a VB Subroutine, no rows are deleted.  I can't see anything wrong.  Can someone help?  (See attached files)

Try it as:
Sub DelMonthlyHospPricingArchive(ByVal dBillDate As Date)
        Dim cmdHP As New SqlCommand
        Try
            conn.Open()
            cmdHP.Connection = conn
            cmdHP.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            cmdHP.Parameters.AddWithValue("@BillDate", dBilldate.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd"))
            cmdHP.CommandText = "DeleteHospPricingSQLArchive"
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        Finally
            conn.Close()
        End Try
    End Sub

Open in new window

You never call an execute method.

Sub DelMonthlyHospPricingArchive(ByVal dBillDate As Date)
        Dim cmdHP As New SqlCommand
        Try
            conn.Open()
            cmdHP.Connection = conn
            cmdHP.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            cmdHP.Parameters.AddWithValue("@BillDate", dBilldate.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd"))
            cmdHP.CommandText = "DeleteHospPricingSQLArchive"
            cmdHP.ExecuteNonQuery
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        Finally
            conn.Close()
        End Try
    End Sub

Good catch, @lludden! You have to execute the SqlCommand at some point, so if your code truly has that missing then try adding that first. If it doesn't work from there, my thought was that the date conversion was causing an issue (i.e., converting incorrectly and so not finding any records to delete). If that is the case, then the fix is to use ToString() to format the date as 'yyyy-MM-dd' or '2012-04-06', which SQL Server should understand as a date properly.

OK - I just tried it and it still did not delete the records.  There are 4300 records - would that make a difference?

How are you calling the sub within VB?

Oh - now I know what you mean - I knew something was missing but just couldn't see it:

 cmdHP.ExecuteNonQuery

Yes that was it.  However I could not do the date conversion without an error.  It worked the way I originally had it - with the exeute line, of course.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!  I have been looking at this forever and could not see what was wrong
