The "IN_KEYWORD" excpetion in

I get this exception when I  selected the particular value from the drop down list. It does not happen with other values but just with the one.
The IN keyword must be followed by a non-empty list of expressions separated by commas, and also must be enclosed in parentheses.
HEre is the code

     Dim dViewEmp As DataView = New DataView(dsEmp.Tables(0), "UID  not in (" & strbldr.ToString & ")", "UID", DataViewRowState.CurrentRows)

Open in new window

Any ideas? It works good with other selected values.  Thanks!

What is the value of strbldr at the time the exception is encountered?

Hi developer2012,
maybe something like this:
    Dim strbldr As New StringBuilder
    ' populate your stringbuilder with ID's like "1,2,3,4,5,6,207,901"
    Dim dViewEmp As System.Data.DataView = Nothing
    If strbldr.ToString.Length > 0 Then
      ' Populate the DataView with filtered data.
      dViewEmp = New System.Data.DataView(dsEmp.Tables(0), "UID  not in (" & strbldr.ToString & ")", "UID", System.Data.DataViewRowState.CurrentRows)
      ' Populate the DataView with unfiltered data
      dViewEmp = New System.Data.DataView(dsEmp.Tables(0))
    End If

Open in new window
