    Problem with parameterized update query

    I am using the following code to try and update a database entry, the UPDATE statement works when i am not using parameters but when i am using them it seems to do absolutely nothing. No error and no update either.

    PHP Code:
    sqlString "UPDATE table SET field1 = @value1, field2 = @value2, field3 = @value3 WHERE field1 = @currentValue" 
    dbCommand.CommandText sqlString 
    dbCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@field2 "txtTwo.Text
    dbCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@field3 "txtThree.Text
    Can anyone tell me why this isnt working?

    Re: Problem with parameterized update query

    you've missed matched the parameter names...

    field1 = @value1, field2 = @value2, field3 = @value3

    and then..

    dbCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@value1", txtOne.Text)
    dbCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@field2", txtTwo.Text)
    dbCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@field3", txtThree.Text)

    Also take the space out of the parameters name....

    Re: Problem with parameterized update query

    Actually that was just a mistake when i was posting the code, i changed the parameter names from what i actually have in my code and accidentally put @field instead of @value. In my code they are actually correct. That wasnt the source of the problem.
