The fields UserID and SetID are UniqueIdentifiers in the database, and somehow I'm adding them wrong.

Code below is doing an update and fails on "setCmd.ExecuteNonQuery()"

tnx
~j


        sqlConn.Open()

        Dim saveCommand As String
        If CurEdit <> "" Then
            saveCommand = "UPDATE Settings SET Setting = @Setting,Value = @Value,Encrypted = @Encrypted, Description = @Description WHERE setID = @SetID"
        Else
            saveCommand = "INSERT INTO Settings (SetID,UserID,Application,Setting, Value, Encrypted, Description) VALUES(@SetID,@UserID,@Application,@Setting, @Value, @Encrypted, @Description)"
        End If

        Dim setCmd As New SqlCommand(saveCommand, sqlConn)
        setCmd.Parameters.Add("@Setting", Data.SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = SettingStr
        setCmd.Parameters.Add("@Value", Data.SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = ValueStr
        setCmd.Parameters.Add("@UserID", Data.SqlDbType.UniqueIdentifier).Value = New Guid("1CF96072-5A51-4CCB-B171-7E84EE1E9E31")
        setCmd.Parameters.Add("@Application", Data.SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = "852VMI"
        setCmd.Parameters.Add("@Encrypted", Data.SqlDbType.Bit).Value = EncryptRB
        setCmd.Parameters.Add("@Description", Data.SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = DescStr

        If CurEdit <> "" Then
            setCmd.Parameters.Add("@SetID", Data.SqlDbType.UniqueIdentifier).Value = CurEdit
        Else
            setCmd.Parameters.Add("@SetID", Data.SqlDbType.UniqueIdentifier).Value = Guid.NewGuid.ToString
        End If

        setCmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
        sqlConn.Close()
        sqlConn.Dispose()

Convert your Guid to SqlGuid,  see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.data.sqltypes.sqlguid.aspx

setCmd.Parameters.Add("@UserID", SqlDbType.UniqueIdentifier).Value = new System.Data.SqlTypes.SqlGuid("1CF96072-5A51-4CCB-B171-7E84EE1E9E31");

Nah, still giving the same message...

Any other ideas?


        sqlConn.Open()

        Dim saveCommand As String
        If CurEdit <> "" Then
            saveCommand = "UPDATE Settings SET Setting = @Setting,Value = @Value,Encrypted = @Encrypted, Description = @Description WHERE setID = @SetID"
        Else
            saveCommand = "INSERT INTO Settings (SetID,UserID,Application,Setting, Value, Encrypted, Description) VALUES(@SetID,@UserID,@Application,@Setting, @Value, @Encrypted, @Description)"
        End If

        Dim setCmd As New SqlCommand(saveCommand, sqlConn)
        setCmd.Parameters.Add("@Setting", SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = SettingStr
        setCmd.Parameters.Add("@Value", SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = ValueStr
        setCmd.Parameters.Add("@UserID", SqlDbType.UniqueIdentifier).Value = New System.Data.SqlTypes.SqlGuid("1CF96072-5A51-4CCB-B171-7E84EE1E9E31")

        setCmd.Parameters.Add("@Application", SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = "852VMI"
        setCmd.Parameters.Add("@Encrypted", SqlDbType.Bit).Value = EncryptRB
        setCmd.Parameters.Add("@Description", SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = DescStr

        If CurEdit <> "" Then
            setCmd.Parameters.Add("@SetID", SqlDbType.UniqueIdentifier).Value = New System.Data.SqlTypes.SqlGuid(CurEdit)
        Else
            setCmd.Parameters.Add("@SetID", SqlDbType.UniqueIdentifier).Value = New System.Data.SqlTypes.SqlGuid(Guid.NewGuid.ToString)
        End If

        setCmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
        sqlConn.Close()
        sqlConn.Dispose()
