I'm a super nubie to Visual Studio and I've been working on this but I can't seem to retrieve the correct data to show in my ASP Label. I want to use the querystring ("OrderID") in my sql string to retrieve the orderdate field of my table. It keeps populating 12:00AM


If Not IsPostBack Then
            Dim orderdate As Date
            If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(Request.QueryString("OrderID")) AndAlso Date.TryParse(Request.QueryString("OrderID"), orderdate) Then
                Dim sql As String = "select * from [Orders] where OrderID = " & orderdate.ToString()
            End If
            lblOrderDate.Text = orderdate
        End If

Did you mean to say you want to send Orderid in query and then retrive Order date ?

try this

  Dim orderdate As Date
 If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(Request.QueryString("OrderID")) AndAlso Date.TryParse(Request.QueryString("OrderID"), orderdate) Then

 Dim command As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("select OrderDate from [Orders] where OrderID = " & Request.QueryString("OrderID"),connection)
        connection.Open()
        Dim reader As SqlDataReader = command.ExecuteReader()
        If reader.HasRows Then
            Do While reader.Read()
            orderdate =reader.GetDateTime(0)
            Loop
       
        End If

        reader.Close()
End If

Your code looks a little confused. In this line:
If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(Request.QueryString("OrderID")) AndAlso Date.TryParse(Request.QueryString("OrderID"), orderdate) Then

Open in new window

You are checking two Querystring values, one of which the name suggests is a date.

Which field are you trying to use to query the database, and what field do you want to display in your label?
