if (cn.State == ConnectionState.Closed)
for (int i = 0; i < dt1.Rows.Count - 1; i++)
string check = "select name,days,hdays,months,years * from inventory";
ad2.fill = ad2();
tell here how to write code where please help me string _whr = "select * from inventory where name= 'priya' + dt1.Rows[i][name].ToString()+ = "'," Convert.ToInt32(dt1.Rows[i][days] + hdays = '1'+ Convert.ToInt32(dt1.Rows[i][hdays] + months = '1'+ Convert.ToInt32(dt1.Rows[i][months] + years = '1'+ Convert.ToInt32(dt1.Rows[i][years]+ ")";

if (dt1.Rows.Count > 0)
{ }


string insert = "insert into inventory(name,days,hdays,months,years)values('" + dt1.Rows[i]["name"].ToString() + "'," + Convert.ToInt32(dt1.Rows[i]["days"]) + "," + Convert.ToInt32(dt1.Rows[i]["hdays"]) + "," + Convert.ToInt32(dt1.Rows[i]["months"]) + "," + Convert.ToInt32(dt1.Rows[i]["years"]) + ")";
SqlCommand ad2 = new SqlCommand(insert, cn);

Solution 4

It depends on Data-Type of your Column["code"] of Table["server"].

If Data-Type is Int/Numeric, then below code should work.
cmd.CommandText = "SELECT name FROM server WHERE code="+TextBox1.Text;

In case Data-Type is Varchar / Non-Numeric then try as below.
cmd.CommandText = "SELECT name FROM server WHERE code='" + TextBox1.Text + "'";

However, I don't recommend in-line queries to you. Instead use parametrized query. Because plain inline query is an invite for SQL-Injection.
string sqlConnectString = "YourConnectionString";
string sqlSelect = "SELECT name FROM server WHERE code= @CodeValue";

SqlConnection sqlConnection = new SqlConnection(sqlConnectString);
SqlCommand sqlCommand = new SqlCommand(sqlSelect, sqlConnection);

sqlCommand.Parameters.Add("@CodeValue", System.Data.SqlDbType.Int);// Set SqlDbType based on your DB column Data-Type

 sqlCommand.Parameters["@CodeValue"].Value = TextBox1.Text;

SqlDataAdapter sqlDa = new SqlDataAdapter(sqlCommand);
DataTable sqlDt = new DataTable();

Where do you set the value of @CodeValue? ;)
Please see my answer for a shorter notation.
RaisKazi 25-Oct-11 5:18am
That was missed. :). Please look at my updated answer.
Sander Rossel 25-Oct-11 6:12am
Yep, looking much better. My 5 for a correct and complete answer.

Always use parameterized queries!
Your current solution is not sql injection safe.
Adding parameters is quite easy in fact.
cmd.CommandText = "SELECT name FROM server WHERE code = @code";
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@code", TextBox1.Text);

.NET/SQL will now replace @code with the correct value. No chance for SQL injection, cleaner code, query is cached which causes better performance.
Everyone wins! :)

My 5! Parametrized queries always better considering security issue.

Solution 6


cmd.CommandText = "SELECT name FROM server WHERE code='"+ TextBox1.Text + "';

This could be the correct syntax. But this is no longer right way to write the code in the real time applications.
In the real time applications whenever ur passing form data to the DB u better to assign it to parameter and than send to DB to prevent SQL Injections.
