I am trying to update a database record when a user amends it. I have a textbox called 'txtColsTextBox' which stores the value and a button called 'btnSaveExit'. On the button click, I need to update the db with new value. How would I do this based on my code. I am thinking , i need to use me.validate function but not sure how to code. Thanks

        Dim connetionString As String
        Dim oledbCnn As OleDbConnection
        Dim oledbCmd As OleDbCommand
        Dim sql As String

        connetionString = "Provider = Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=C:\csm\storage.accdb"
        sql = "SELECT Cols FROM Racks Where [Rack code] = '" & buttonName & "'"
            oledbCnn = New OleDbConnection(connetionString)
        Try
            oledbCnn.Open()
            oledbCmd = New OleDbCommand(sql, oledbCnn)
            Dim oledbReader As OleDbDataReader = oledbCmd.ExecuteReader()
            While oledbReader.Read
                'MsgBox(oledbReader.Item(0))
                txtColsTextBox.Text = oledbReader.Item(0)
            End While
            oledbReader.Close()
            oledbCmd.Dispose()
            oledbCnn.Close()
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try

I would recommend using an Update query.

Execute something like this:

Update Racks SET Cols = " & txtColsTextBox.Text  & " Where [Rack code] = '" & buttonName & "'"

Would I place this in my button click event? Also, do I not need to reference an adapter of sorts to perform the update? Thanks

You would use this in the click event in place of your code using oledbReader.

try something like this:

Dim myConnection As New OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider = Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=C:\csm\storage.accdb")

Dim SQLCmd As New OleDbCommand
Dim SQLStr As String = "Update Racks SET Cols = " & txtColsTextBox.Text  & " Where [Rack code] = '" & buttonName & "'"

myConnection.Open()
SQLCmd.Connection = myConnection
SQLCmd.CommandText = SQLStr
SQLCmd.ExecuteNonQuery()

myConnection.Close()

Open in new window

This article and sample covers that "How to Insert, Update, Delete and Search Values to/from MS Access database 2003 with VB.NET 2005", Although VB.NET 2005 gives lot more methodologies to do this same job but I find this more easier, simplest and understandable for a beginner.
