I am trying to execute an SQL stored procedure from vb express, i have done this several times and normally its works - with exactly the same code.  This time there is no error but the update does not run.

If i execute the procedure in SQL the update works fine.

VB code....

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim cmd6 = New SqlCommand("stp_UpdateTemptbl_Stops", con)
        If con.State = ConnectionState.Closed Then con.Open()
        cmd6.CommandText = "stp_UpdateTemptbl_Stops"
        cmd6.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
        cmd6.ExecuteNonQuery()
    End Sub

SQL Procedure.....

USE [OEE]
GO
/****** Object:  StoredProcedure [dbo].[stp_UpdateTemptbl_Stops]    Script Date: 03/01/2014 21:07:17 ******/
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[stp_UpdateTemptbl_Stops]
      -- Add the parameters for the stored procedure here
AS
BEGIN
      -- SET NOCOUNT ON added to prevent extra result sets from
      -- interfering with SELECT statements.
      SET NOCOUNT ON;

UPDATE d
SET DowntimeCode = s.DowntimeCode
FROM dbo.tbl_MachineData d
INNER JOIN dbo.temptbl_Stops s
ON d.StartDate = s.StartDate

END

Thanks

Check whether the connection string is correct or not?

Make sure that your SP is in the correct db and u have correct sp.

cmd6.ExecuteNonQuery() will return integer value..Howmany rows are affected? Ensure that it is not zero.

Debug the application and put breakpoint inside the method. See what happens? If any of the issue, solve it first. Make sure that the sp is being hit using SQL profiler. It should be working.

Dim cmd6 = New SqlCommand("stp_UpdateTemptbl_Stops", con)

        Try
            If con.State = ConnectionState.Closed Then con.Open()
            cmd6.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            cmd6.ExecuteNonQuery()
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(ex.Message, "Error", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error)
        End Try

I get the error on the line connection line.  I can get round the problem by opening  second connection but i am unsure why i am having to do that.

Any advice would be most welcome as i don't really want lots of connection channels.

where is your connection supposed to be opened?

ADO.Net was built to do not hold connection to save resources. It relies on connection pool  to save time reopening connections.

My connection string is read in the form class

Dim con As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection("Server=.\SQLEXPRESS;Database=OEE;USER Id=Me;Trusted_Connection=True")

Are you disposing the connection object anywhere?
