update creating dups

When this runs it doesn't update the rows it inserts them.                    


Dim data_adapter As New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM thierorderguide WHERE Company = '" & lbCompanies.SelectedItem.ToString & "'", mainform.dbconnection)
                    Dim command_builder As New OleDb.OleDbCommandBuilder(data_adapter)
                    data_adapter.Update(DataGridViewToDataTable(dgadditem))

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Its because you recreate the adapter. Declare the adapter at class level and use the same instance to populate and update the datatable.

I switched up and am using the dataadapter from the loaddatagrid sub, it is still inserting and not updating

Here is the code for loading the datagrid:
    Sub loaddatagrid(ByVal sql As String)
        ''fill the datagrid with all items in the order guide by the company selected
        dsadditems = New DataSet
        dvdataview = New DataView
        daeditdeleteorderguide = New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(sql, mainform.dbconnection)
        daeditdeleteorderguide.Fill(dsadditems)
        dgadditem.DataSource = dsadditems.Tables(0).DefaultView.ToTable(True)
        dvdataview = New DataView(dgadditem.DataSource)
        dgadditem.DataSource = dvdataview
    End Sub

Here is the code for taking a datagridview to a table:
    Public Shared Function DataGridViewToDataTable(ByVal dtg As DataGridView) As DataTable
        Try
            Dim dt As New DataTable
            Dim row As DataRow
            Dim TotalDatagridviewColumns As Integer = dtg.ColumnCount - 1
            'Add Datacolumn
            For Each c As DataGridViewColumn In dtg.Columns
                Dim idColumn As DataColumn = New DataColumn()
                idColumn.ColumnName = c.Name
                dt.Columns.Add(idColumn)
            Next
            'Now Iterate thru Datagrid and create the data row
            For Each dr As DataGridViewRow In dtg.Rows
                'Iterate thru datagrid
                row = dt.NewRow 'Create new row
                'Iterate thru Column 1 up to the total number of columns
                For cn As Integer = 0 To TotalDatagridviewColumns
                    row.Item(cn) = IfNullObj(dr.Cells(cn).Value) ' This Will handle error datagridviewcell on NULL Values
                Next
                'Now add the row to Datarow Collection
                dt.Rows.Add(row)
            Next
            'Now return the data table
            Return dt
        Catch ex As Exception
            Return Nothing
        End Try
    End Function

Why are you doing this bit in 3rd code snippet? Off course you are creating new rows which would be inserted instead of updated.

Okay this is what i feared.  Since im using a datagridview and not a datagrid there is not table bound from the database to the source.  Is that why i can't update?
