sql server/vb.net

I have some code to send some data to insert into a table but having trouble with the USP with it showing syntax error

The USP:
USE [Dictionary]
GO

SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[usp_InsertLinkWords]
@StrShort varchar(50),
@WordCommon varchar(50)
AS
BEGIN
INSERT INTO [dbo].[TblShortDescLink] ([StrShort], WordCommon )

SELECT [dbo].[TblWords].[StrShort], @WordCommon as WordCommon
FROM [dbo].[TblWords] 
WHERE  [dbo].[TblWords].StrShort=@StrShort
GROUP BY StrShort
END

VB.net
    Private Sub PanelLinkShort_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles PanelLinkShort.Click
        Dim StrProcName As String

        Dim selectedRowCount As Integer =
           DataGridViewStringsBulk.Rows.GetRowCount(DataGridViewElementStates.Selected)
        Dim x As String
        If selectedRowCount > 0 Then

            Dim connectionString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("Dictionary").ConnectionString
            StrProcName = "usp_InsertLinkWords"
            Using conn As New SqlConnection(connectionString)
                Using cmd As New SqlCommand(StrProcName, conn)
                    cmd.CommandTimeout = 0
                    cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
                    conn.Open()

                    Dim StrCommon As String

                    For i = 0 To selectedRowCount - 1

                        'get rows

Did you run the code or you didn't because of the marked red lines?

Please run the code first.
Personally I never take SSMS seriously in these kind of situations.

I found another piece of code i had made in this format with the insert in the vb

so can this be replicated in a usp

cmdInsert.CommandText = "INSERT INTO TblWords (ClientCodeWordPosition, ClientCode, ClientName, Word, WordLen, StrFull, WordPosition, NoOfWords) VALUES ('" & StrClientCodeWordPos & "','" & StrClientCode & "','" & StrClientName & "','" & StrWord & "'," & intWordLen & ",'" & StrFull & "'," & IntWordPosition & "," & IntNoOfWords & " )"
                            cmdInsert.ExecuteNonQuery()

like this or is this a bad way

cmdInsert.CommandText = "INSERT INTO TblShortDescLink (StrShort, StrCommon) VALUES ('" & StrClientCodeWordPos & "','" & StrClientCode & " )"

I can't see in your vb code the execution of the USP. Isn't a cmd.ExecuteNonQuery() missing?

Author

Commented:
a correction in the vb.net with this

cmdInsert.CommandText = "INSERT INTO TblShortDescLink (StrShort, StrCommon) VALUES ('" & DataGridViewStringsBulk.SelectedRows(i).Cells("Strshort").Value & "','" & StrCommon & " )"
cmdInsert.ExecuteNonQuery()

If you want to get rid of the USP and run the INSERT directly from the vb.net then don't forget to remove the line:
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure

Ive changed it to this now:

    Private Sub PanelLinkShort_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles PanelLinkShort.Click
        Dim StrProcName As String

        Dim selectedRowCount As Integer =
           DataGridViewStringsBulk.Rows.GetRowCount(DataGridViewElementStates.Selected)
        Dim x As String
        If selectedRowCount > 0 Then


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

                    cmdInsert.CommandTimeout = 0


                    Dim StrCommon As String
                    StrCommon = ""

                    Dim i As Integer
                    For i = 0 To selectedRowCount - 1

                        'get rows

                        'cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@StrShort", DataGridViewStringsBulk.SelectedRows(i).Cells("Strshort").Value)

                        If i = 0 Then
                            StrCommon = DataGridViewStringsBulk.SelectedRows(i).Cells("Strshort").Value
                        Else

                        End If


                        'cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@WordCommon", StrCommon)
                        cmdInsert.CommandText = "INSERT INTO TblShortDescLink (StrShort, StrCommon) VALUES ('" & DataGridViewStringsBulk.SelectedRows(i).Cells("Strshort").Value & "','" & StrCommon & " )"
                        cmdInsert.ExecuteNonQuery()

                    Next i

                End Using
            End Using
            MessageBox.Show("Finished")

        End If

I don't really recommend to hard code the "insert statement" in the codes. your original issue was not resolved, this would consider as a quick fix for me.
