reference data

Here is my code:

 Private Sub frmCompInfo_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        'TODO: This line of code loads data into the 'CompanyInfo._CompanyInfo' table. You can move, or remove it, as needed.
        Me.CompanyInfoTableAdapter.Fill(Me.CompanyInfo._CompanyInfo)

    End Sub

then I go to update it off of a Save Button

Me.CompanyInfoTableAdapter.Update(Me.CompanyInfo._CompanyInfo.GetChanges)

AND I get this error

argument null exception was unhandled

In my situation you need to call:
     
  Me.CompanyInfoBindingSource.EndEdit()

        before:

        Me.CompanyInfo._CompanyInfo.GetChanges()
        Me.CompanyInfoTableAdapter.Update(Me.CompanyInfo._CompanyInfo)

And much joy will be had!!!

It sounds like one of the objects in the offending line has not been initiated.

Place a break point at this line and then check the values of the objects in the call.

I tried that and all looks well
It loads to the form and all textboxes that it's bound to

<Global.System.Diagnostics.DebuggerNonUserCodeAttribute(), _
         Global.System.CodeDom.Compiler.GeneratedCodeAttribute("System.Data.Design.TypedDataSetGenerator", "4.0.0.0"), _
         Global.System.ComponentModel.Design.HelpKeywordAttribute("vs.data.TableAdapter")> _
        Public Overridable Overloads Function Update(ByVal dataTable As CompanyInfo.CompanyInfoDataTable) As Integer
            Return Me.Adapter.Update(dataTable) <<< Errors out here the datatable is nothing
        End Function

but it's passed from here

 Me.CompanyInfoTableAdapter.Update(Me.CompanyInfo._CompanyInfo.GetChanges)

I mouse over and the data is in the ta and the ds and dt??? all have proper data
I'm stumped Which doesn't take to much.

You are passing the results of the method GetChanges not the datatable itself. What happens if you pass just Me.CompanyInfo._CompanyInfo.

Well I don't get any errors and it seems to bring over the data table name correctly
But it will not update any changes I make to the table???

that's progress anyway - what do I do now?

Update the table then pass it to the function eg

Me.CompanyInfo._CompanyInfo.GetChanges
Me.CompanyInfoTableAdapter.Update(Me.CompanyInfo._CompanyInfo)

Open in new window

everything seems to be going where it should and be in the proper places
But - it still will not push the changes to the data table in the database????

Does anybody have any other  advice - this issue is holding up my whole project basically
Should I populate straight from a SQL

MBHEY131Author Commented:
Me.CompanyInfo._CompanyInfo.GetChanges()
        Me.CompanyInfoTableAdapter.Update(Me.CompanyInfo._CompanyInfo)

Got me on the right track
But:

        Me.CompanyInfoBindingSource.EndEdit()

Needed to be added
