vb.net update access db

Last Modified: 2014-11-25
I made a personal program that will keep track of the maintenance i perform on my car and at the different mileage intervals.  I got it to read from an access database, but when i go to update its a bit wonky.  I click update and different textboxes are updated that what should be.  For instance in the cabin filter textbox, if i put completed and hit save, it shows up on the air filter textbox.  Any ideas?

 Dim sqlupdate As String
        sqlupdate = "UPDATE BMW_Maintenance SET Oil_Change=@Oil_Change, Cabin_Filter=@Cabin_Filter, " & _
           "Air_Filter=@Air_Filter, Engine_Coolant=@Engine_Coolant, Differential_Oil=@Differential_Oil, " & _
           "Spark_Plugs=@Spark_Plugs, Trans_Fluid_and_Filter=@Trans_Fluid_and_Filter, Engine_Drive_Belts=@Engine_Drive_Belts, " & _
           "O2_Sensors=@O2_Sensors, Water_and_Fuel_Hoses=@Water_and_Fuel_Hoses, Fuel_Filter=@Fuel_Filter, " & _
           "Tires=@Tires, Wheel_Alignment=@Wheel_Alignment, Notes=@Notes, Battery=@Battery, " & _
             "Brake_Fluid=@Brake_Fluid, Power_Steering=@Power_Steering WHERE ID=@id"
        Dim cmd As New OleDbCommand(sqlupdate, con1)
        ' This assigns the values for our columns in the DataBase.   
        ' To ensure the correct values are written to the correct column  
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Oil_Change", tbOil.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Cabin_Filter", tbCabin.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Brake_Fluid", tbBF.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Power_Steering", tbPS.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Air_Filter", tbAF.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Engine_Coolant", tbCoolant.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Differential_Oil", tbdiff.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Spark_Plugs", tbspark.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Trans_Fluid_and_Filter", tbtrans.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Engine_Drive_Belts", tbbelts.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@O2_Sensors", tbO2.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Water_and_Fuel_Hoses", tbhoses.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Fuel_Filter", tbFF.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Tires", tbtires.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Wheel_Alignment", tbwheel.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Notes", tbnotes.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Battery", tbbat.Text)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ID", Convert.ToInt32(tbid.Text))
        con1.Open()
        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
        con1.Close()

Hard to say, since we don't really know how you're filling those Textboxes. Are you code to fill them, or a DataSource control of some sort?

heres how i fill them:

Private Sub ComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles ComboBox1.SelectedIndexChanged
        Dim sqlupdate As String
        sqlupdate = "SELECT * FROM BMW_Maintenance Where MileMarker='" & ComboBox1.SelectedItem & "'"
        Dim cmd As New OleDbCommand(sqlupdate, con1)
        con1.Open()
        Dim dr As OleDbDataReader
        dr = cmd.ExecuteReader()
        While dr.Read()
            tbOil.Text = (dr("Oil_Change")).ToString
            tbCabin.Text = (dr("Cabin_Filter")).ToString
            tbBF.Text = (dr("Brake_Fluid")).ToString
            tbPS.Text = (dr("Power_Steering")).ToString
            tbAF.Text = (dr("Air_Filter")).ToString
            tbCoolant.Text = (dr("Engine_Coolant")).ToString
            tbdiff.Text = (dr("Differential_Oil")).ToString
            tbspark.Text = (dr("Spark_Plugs")).ToString

That's somewhat odd - the "order" in which you call these items shouldn't make a difference. Could you provide more details, in case someone else has the same issue?

Were not in the same order as below:

Seems odd, since you've explicitly named the Parameters. Still, long as it works, glad you got it straight.
