C# syntax with insert

I need to insert records into a table from a girdview. I have an asp.net page (c# code behind) that has 2 gridviews. You move selected records from the one on the left to the one on the right. Once you have the list final, you can select Save and have the records save to a table. The table is in a simple Access database. Right now I have it working as far as inserting the ID into the table, but I'm having trouble with the syntax in inserting further fields. Below is my code so far:

protectec void btnSave_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
cn.Open();
OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand();
cmd.Connection = cn;
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
DataTable dt  = (DataTable)ViewState["SelectedRecords"];
foreach (DataRow dr in dt.Rows)
{
cmd.CommandText = "insert into MyList(ID)values('" + dr["ID"] + "');
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
}
cn.Close()
}
I need to add as part of the insert another field, probably the username. I'm grabbing the username as a session varible elsewhere. I want to insert that along with the ID. But the syntax keeps messing me up. Any help is appreciated.

Add a quote at the end to fix the syntax:
cmd.CommandText = "insert into MyList(ID)values('" + dr["ID"] + "')";

Open in new window

yes, that was a typo. I can't cut and paste. The code reads:
cmd.CommandText = "insert into MyList(ID)values('" + dr["ID"] + "')";

Now I need to add another field to be inserted, like user (which will be a session variable):

cmd.CommandText = "insert into MyList(ID, user)values('" + dr["ID"] + "', user);

That's the syntax I can't seem to get working.

To add another field:
cmd.CommandText = "insert into MyList(ID, username)values('" + dr["ID"] + "', '" + dr["username"] + "')";

Open in new window


of course replace username with the correct column name and response key.

I have often struggled with keeping track of quotes and apostrophes. I rely in part on a good editor that lets me know when things are not balanced.

That is what helped me spot your syntax error immediately.

I also have lots of experience with expressions that build things like SQL.
