Trying to save data type NULL or integer in parameterized query

Hi,

Here is my code. http://screencast.com/t/DSMCoDDc  I added the last optional parameter for 'review status'  and have two sub routine calls  that call this save routine.  The first, where I specify the 'review status' as one, we are all good and the record is created just fine, however when I use the second sub routine  call and 'Nothing" I get the error you see in the screenshot.  So what am I not getting

Thanks in advance!!

check lines 320 and 326, they both should be @reviewed.

on line 326, change @fkid_letter to @reviewed as the parameter name.

well that prevented the exception from firing but the record doesn't save to the DB if you look here http://screencast.com/t/YFvdJYY5 you see that 'reviewed' is 0 but when I call the routine I pass 'Nothing'.  Hmm?  Thanks

on line 312 you are still referring to fkid_letter, just before the word values

fkid_letter) values (@address

try this as:

reviewed) values (@address

I'm not sure 312 should be 'reviewed'  Here is another screenshot but this time with the DB so you can see the column names.  No exception but it's still not saving.  I think I've implemented the last coment  http://screencast.com/t/XPrLMNTdQM

Hey Thanks both of you for helping me.  

I stumbled upon this link http://bytes.com/topic/visual-basic-net/answers/350316-how-can-integer-contain-null-value and reintroduced mself to the 'Object' data type.  

What was happening once my parameters were cleaned up is that when you assign an integer Nothing it renders as 0 but we wanted it to be DBNULL.Value which I changed as well from 'Nothing' in the calling routine
