Hi,
When running the below codes,
                try
                {
                    cmd = new SqlCommand("insert into dbo.tab3 (user_id,rec_id,rec_desc,change_date) values (@par_id2,11,' ',getdate())", conn);

                    cmd.Parameters.Add("@par_id2", SqlDbType.Int).Value = Convert.ToInt32(lb_userid.Text);
                    cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
                }
                catch (Exception ex)
                {
                    lb_msg.Text = ex.Message + ex.Source;
                    return;
                }
                ...

I don't know why I've got this error.

Input string was not in a correct format

The above is telling you that your UI control did you contain a string value that it could convert to an Int.

You really want to validate the input before you attempt your process:

try
{
    int converted = 0;
    if (Int32.TryParse(lb_userid.Text, out converted))
    {
        cmd = new SqlCommand("insert into dbo.tab3 (user_id,rec_id,rec_desc,change_date) values (@par_id2,11,' ',getdate())", conn);
        cmd.Parameters.Add("@par_id2", SqlDbType.Int).Value = converted;
        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
    }
    else
    {
        lbl_msg.Text = "Unable to convert user id";
    }
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
    lb_msg.Text = ex.Message + ex.Source; 
}
return;
