Hi,
I have a formview on my web page bound to a sql data source.  When I try to Insert a new record I get an error message that I cannot insert a null value in the adj_description column.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong; everything looks okay.

I've attached my sqldatasource code and my formview code

 <asp:FormView ID="fvInsertNewAdjusment" runat="server" 
                DataSourceID="AdjustmenttSqlDataSource" DefaultMode="Insert">
                <EditItemTemplate>
                    AdjID:
                    <asp:Label ID="AdjIDLabel1" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("AdjID") %>' />
                    <br />
                    Lockbox:
                    <asp:TextBox ID="LockboxTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Lockbox") %>' />
                    <br />
                    Credit_Date:
                    <asp:TextBox ID="Credit_DateTextBox" runat="server" 
                        Text='<%# Bind("Credit_Date") %>' />
                    <br />
                    Adj_Description:
                    <asp:TextBox ID="Adj_DescriptionTextBox" runat="server" 
                        Text='<%# Bind("Adj_Description") %>' />
                    <br />
                    Adj_Amt:

At first glance, it looks like your parameter

<asp:Parameter Name="adj_desc" /> is not right - you haven't given adj_desc a value anywhere.

You either need to make it a control parameter that refers to the Adj_DescriptionTextBox ID in the listview-

<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="Adj_DescriptionTextBox" Name="adj_desc" />

or you will need to use the name of the bound field-

<asp:Parameter Name="Adj_Description" />

Okay, I thought having the control bound in the formview handled that but I will update my parameter line in the sqldatasource code. Thanks.

I added this code to my sqlserver datasource insert command:
<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="Adj_DescriptionTextBox" Name="adj_desc" />

I get the following error:
Could not find control 'Adj_DescriptionTextBox' in ControlParameter 'adj_desc'.

You have same name for this control in both Edit and Insert templates. What happens if you change the textbox name in edit template?

Also, you need to specify
PropertyName="Text"

in control parameter.

I added the PropertyName="Text" to the parameter attributes and changed the name of the textbox control in the edittimetemplate and I am still getting the error.

Does it work if you change the controlid to "fvInsertNewAdjusment$Adj_DescriptionTextBox"?

Thanks that worked!  Very strange; I've never had to put the actual form name in the parameters.  Appreciate your help.
