records update using visual basic and UPDATE SET statement ACCESS table

salvatore Colaiuda 0 Reputation points

Hello There

I am trying to update ACCESS table records using the statement UPDATE SET WHERE and a datagridview as source, the code that I put together seems to be running fine (syntax talking), I say syntax because there is not error or break during execution.

However the issues are:

1.- All the cells are updated with the first row value

2.- Ff the updated cell is for example ROW(2),Column(1) the new value is ignored, it always take the top ROW

Look like the parameters are not updated with the new value when the FOW NEXT iteration runs across the datagridview. I tried different methods to define and update parameters but I always get the same result.

The table key word is ID but when using WHERE ID = @ID the COMMAND.EXECUTENONQUERY return no affected rows.

But when using another field like WHERE quotenumber = '" & Quotenumber_CB.SelectedItem & "' the COMMAND.EXECUTENONQUERY returns 666666.

below is a portion of the ACCESS table and the form with the objects.

Thank you in advance any help.

    Hi @salvatore Colaiuda ,

    You should use . Parameters.clear() to clear the value of the parameter in the previous loop.

    Best Regards.
