I have a asp.net aspx page with a form view that will not update.  I get this error message: "Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'FirstName', table 'SEI.dbo.tblIndividual'; column does not allow nulls. UPDATE fails. The statement has been terminated".  Obviously the parameters aren't being passed.  What's wrong?   Below is the code for the form view and datasource.  The form view defaults to Edit view.  Thanks for looking.

i think you need to add the ControlID attribute to your UpdateParamters, otherwise it doesn't know what fields to use

<asp:Parameter Name="fName" ControlID="FirstNameTextBox" />

you'll need to map each parameter

Big Monty,

Thanks for the response.  I tried what you posted but got an error on the format of the parameter.  I constructed the parameter as an asp:ControlParameter and got this error: "Could not find control 'FirstNameTextBox' in ControlParameter 'fName'".  What is the correct way to reference a field in a form view?

per this link, it looks like you need to specify the name of the formview as well:

<asp:Parameter Name="fName" ControlID="formViewID$FirstNameTextBox" />

if that doesn't work, maybe one of the .NET gurus can chime in, as my expertise is mostly classic asp, where this was originally posted
