Any assistance with this would be really appreciated. I've Googled for an answer and can't find anything which specifically deals with the UPDATE command of a gridview, which is  bound  to a SQLDataSource.  I'm using a stored procedure because information has to be added to other tables and their identity values updated in the original table.

I've attempted to isolate the error by creating  a test sproc which is passed 2 parameters, a LocationID from the gridview control and a session variable which is used in the UPDATE's WHERE clause.

The SQL procedure executes as expected, I've added the 2 parameter to the SQLDataSource's UPDATE command and set their values to the applicable values and then in debug mode in the ASP.NET page I've checked to make sure that the SQLDataSource has a parameter count of 2 and that they are the same parameters that the SQL sproc is expecting yet I'm still getting this error message.

This is the message:
Procedure or function spTestUpdate has too many arguments specified.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Procedure or function spTestUpdate has too many arguments specified.

I noticed that in the html the  'SafetyIncidentID' doesn't include a datatype.  I added a type of Int32 and it didn't affect anything.

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SQLDSNonEmployeeForm"
                        AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="SafetyIncidentID">
            <Columns>
                <asp:CommandField ShowEditButton="True" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="SafetyIncidentID" HeaderText="SafetyIncidentID"
                    ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="SafetyIncidentID" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="IncidentDate" HeaderText="IncidentDate"
                    SortExpression="IncidentDate" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="IncidentTime" HeaderText="IncidentTime"
                    SortExpression="IncidentTime" />
           <asp:BoundField DataField="IncidentLocationID" HeaderText="IncidentLocationID"
                    SortExpression="IncidentLocationID" />
            </Columns>
</asp:GridView>

 <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SQLDSNonEmployeeForm" runat="server"
            ConnectionString="<%...%>"
            SelectCommand="spTest" SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure"
            UpdateCommand="spTestUpdate" UpdateCommandType="StoredProcedure">
            <UpdateParameters>
                <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="GridView1" Name="SafetyIncidentID"
                    PropertyName="SelectedValue" />
                <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="GridView1" Name="IncidentLocationID"
                    PropertyName="SelectedValue" Type="Int32" />
            </UpdateParameters>
</asp:SqlDataSource>

Check this: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/ASP.NET/Q_23829093.html
So I think SafetyIncidentID might be added twice. Try removing it and see if that works for you.

I wrote a 4 paragraph response and then hit the wrong button.

In a nutshell, I deleted all of the parameters from the SQLDataSource, then set a watch on the e.Command.Parameters.Count in the SQLDataSource_Updating event which showed 4 parameters defined even though I had deleted all of them.  

After interrogating the names and values of each of the e.Command.Parameters.Item(s) I discovered that ASP.Net was creating a parameter value for each field in the gridview and prefacing each of the gridview names with  the SQL variable/parameter designation of '@'.

I solved the issue by added the additional parameter values to my SQL sproc and setting their default value to null.

Everything appears to be working fine now, thank you so very much.
