Check whether @test returns the value.

Your trying to convert the null value into string that's why it returns  "DBNull to string not valid" error..

Change

paramerers.add("@test", cStr(Values(2)))

to

If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(Values(2)) AND Not ISDBNull(Values(2)) Then
    paramerers.add("@test", cStr(Values(2)))
Else
    paramerers.add("@test", "")
End If

Thanks but it causes errors

On the If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(Values(2))  Error -
Option strict on disallows implicit conversion from object to string

and Name isdbNull is not declared

Had to Change  Value(2) to cstr(Value(2)) in the first line to remove object to string error and remove the ISDBNull but didn't work

Thanks

Ok. Try changing

If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(Values(2)) AND Not ISDBNull(Values(2)) Then

to

If Not Convert.ISDBNull(Values(2)) Then
