Append data to DataGridView instead of overwriting it in Vb.net

Hi Experts,
 
I have two datagridviews. I select multiple rows from one datagridview and move it to another Datagridview. And I have to do it multiple times. First time it works fine. But when I do it next time the previous data is overwritten. I want the Previous rows as well as the new rows in the second datagridview.
I am using the code below to bind the datagridview.

            connection.Open()
            cmd = New SqlCommand(finalSql, connection)
            da.SelectCommand = cmd
            da.Fill(dt)
            bsource.DataSource = dt
            dgvRegister.DataSource = bsource

Thank you in advance.

How do you add them to the 2nd dgv? To the bound datatable?

yes. I am using the following code.

For Each dr As DataGridViewRow In Me.dgvAdd.SelectedRows
                If Me.dgvAdd.SelectedRows.Count = 1 Then
                    '*** When only one row is selected in the first datagrid
                    Dim StockPaletNo As String = dgvAdd.Rows(dr.Index).Cells(4).Value
                    finalSql = finalSql + " " + sqlPaletNo + " '" + StockPaletNo + "'"

                Else
                    Dim StockPaletNo As String = dgvAdd.Rows(dr.Index).Cells(4).Value

                    If finalSql <> "" Then
                        finalSql = finalSql + " or STK_PLT_NO =" + " '" + StockPaletNo + "'"
                    Else
                        finalSql = finalSql + " " + sqlPaletNo + " '" + StockPaletNo + "'"
                    End If
                End If

            Next

            finalSql = SQL + finalSql + sqlOrderBy
            connection.Open()
            cmd = New SqlCommand(finalSql, connection)
            da.SelectCommand = cmd
            da.Fill(dt)
            bsource.DataSource = dt
            dgvRegister.DataSource = bsource

Took me a second to read the code, but I think I get what you're trying to do. SQL is the 'base' query that retrieves data, then you include more rows by adding finalsql (which has a series of ORs). Then you retrieve that and bind that to the datagrid.
finalsql is defined outside this function.
Not the easiest way I think, but that is also not really your question. Assuming I understood your code correctly, are you able to store any data in the dgv the second time? Because the second time I don't think this going to run correctly:
finalSql = SQL + finalSql + sqlOrderBy

Open in new window

put a messagebox or debug.print to show the finalsql and look at the contents.

Thank you  for ur reply. This is the final query.

"SELECT * FROM PNLSTKMST WHERE STK_PART_NO = '663113S000         ' AND CONVERT(INT,STK_QTY) != 0 AND STK_PRO_STS = '0' AND STK_BAD_CLS = '00' AND   STK_PLT_NO =  '1014' or STK_PLT_NO = '1030' ORDER BY STK_DATE,STK_TIME,STK_ROW,STK_BAY,STK_LEV"

Actually there is no problem with the query. I am getting all the records I need to. But how can I bind the DGV so that it should not overwrite the previous data.

Thanks.

If you don't want to store the data in a database table you could use a datatable for the intermediate results. You use a second datatable for the second dgv (if the structure is the same you can use the datatable.clone method-  this copies the structure but not the data). Then you can import the datarows from the datatable bound to the first dgv to the second datatable: datatable2.import(row) - you need to look at the exact syntax. That way you can keep on adding to datatable2.

Thank you for your time to help me. But I found the solution. Instead of binding the second datagrid I am moving the selected row from one DGV to another.

For i = 0 To dgvAdd.SelectedRows.Count - 1
                Dim index As Integer = dgvRegister.Rows.Add
                dgvRegister.Rows(index).Cells(0).Value = dgvAdd.SelectedRows(i).Cells(0).Value.ToString
next i
