sql server variable names already declared in vb.net

I have made this for loop that works ok and grabs the data i need.

within the loop it wont update the table as it says variables already declared, it says this whatever I rename them too:

not sure what to do about that error.

 For Each drAccessRecord As DataRow In dtRecordsFromAccessSmmt.Rows ' each smmt veh cat record

                    '********************************************************************************************************

                    cmdInsertSmmt.CommandText = "UPDATE dbo.TblWords SET VehCategory = @VehCategory WHERE ClientCode = @ClientCode "

                    cmdInsertSmmt.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ClientCode", drAccessRecord("MVRIS CODE"))
                    cmdInsertSmmt.Parameters.AddWithValue("@VehCategory", drAccessRecord("Vehicle Category Code"))
                    cmdInsertSmmt.ExecuteNonQuery()



                Next

Try this syntax instead:

 cmdInsertSmmt.CommandText = "UPDATE dbo.TblWords SET VehCategory = @VehCategory WHERE ClientCode = @ClientCode "

cmdInsertSmmt.Parameters.Add("@ClientCode", SqlDBType.VarChar, 50).Value =  drAccessRecord("MVRIS CODE")
cmdInsertSmmt.Parameters.Add("@VehCategory",SqlDBType.VarChar, 50).value = drAccessRecord("Vehicle Category Code")

Obviously you'd change the "SqlDBType.VarChar" to reflect the actual datatypes.

Do you do :

cmdInsertSmmt = New SqlCommand()

within the loop, so that parameters are new in every loop?

@ Valliappan

I dont believe i have here is the part above the for loop, so does that need to go within the loop?

 Using cnSqlSmmt As New SqlClient.SqlConnection("Data Source=MAIN-PC\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=Dictionary;Integrated Security=True;MultipleActiveResultSets=True")

            Using cmdInsertSmmt As New SqlClient.SqlCommand
                cmdInsertSmmt.Connection = cnSqlSmmt
                cnSqlSmmt.Open()
                Dim y As Long

                y = dtRecordsFromAccessSmmt.Rows.Count
                For Each drAccessRecord As DataRow In dtRecordsFromAccessSmmt.Rows ' each smmt veh cat record

I stepped through and the error was on the 2nd record, so maybe thats because of what  Valliappan said

I checked and in some cases it populates in others it doesnt, the for loop has the right count.

PeterBaileyUkAuthor Commented:
I debugged with a smaller set of access records just using one record that failed to update previously, that record updated.

it must be the sequence in the for loop with the command objects.

I just do not know what.

How many records are you trying to update, and how many is updated so far?

There are just under 700000 rows so i think i will have to do this a different way as its poiible its working but its just slow.

Valliappan ANSenior Tech ConsultantCommented:
If its one time, you may import the Access table to SQL using SQL Import/Export tool, to a table and then use joins to update it in one sql statement, will be very fast.

Another option is to use, OpenDataSource, or OpenQuery, or Linked Servers. But i would suggest above option.

Thanks.

I will append the data to a smaller table, I think its almost there its the syntax thats causing an exception

  cmdInsertSmmt.CommandText = "INSERT INTO TblVehCat (ClientCode, VehCategory) VALUES ('" & drAccessRecord("MVRIS CODE") & "', '" & drAccessRecord("Vehicle Category Code") & "','" & " )"


                    cmdInsertSmmt.ExecuteNonQuery()

finally got it with
 cmdInsertSmmt.CommandText = "INSERT INTO TblVehCat (ClientCode, VehCategory) VALUES ('" & drAccessRecord("MVRIS CODE") & "', '" & drAccessRecord("Vehicle Category Code") & "'" & " )"
