See more:
string str = "insert into "+label4.Text+"'(dataid,data) values('"+textBox1.Text+"','"+label2.Text+ "')";
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(str,con);
MessageBox.Show("values inserted!");

What I have tried:

when i'm running it this error comes
Incorrect syntax near '='.
Unclosed quotation mark after the character string ')'.

Do not concatenate strings to build a SQL command. It leaves you wide open to accidental or deliberate SQL Injection attack which can destroy your entire database. Use Parametrized queries instead.
The chances are that that will cure your problem at the same time.
Especially if you get rid of the spare quote before your open bracket:
string str = "INSERT INTO MyTable (dataid,data) VALUES (@DI, @DT)";
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(str,con);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@DI", textBox1.Text);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@DT", label2.Text);

thanks for the query

You're welcome!
Google for "C# parameterized sql queries" for the solution to this problem. The only problem with this solution is that you can NOT parameterize the table name. Since you're using a label to hold the table name I don't know why you're ever using a label to hold the name in the first place.

Next, Google for "Sql Injection Attack" to find out why what you're currently doing is so bad. You risk destruction of your database, either inadvertently or intentionally with the code you've written.

Thank you for the suggestion.the label text is used for name of the table..i'll google for sql injection attack

Why are you getting the name from a LABEL? That's really odd and bad practice.

What you see on screen is a visual representation of the data model in your application. It should never be used AS the data model.
Use the debugger to examine the contents of the str variable and it will look like;

insert into mytable'(dataid,data) values('1','One')

Is that valid SQL? No, you have an unneeded quotation mark (after the table name) which is exactly what the error message is telling you

string str = "insert into "+label4.Text+" (dataid,data) values('"+textBox1.Text+"','"+label2.Text+ "')";

You've copied the SQL Injection[^] vulnerability from the question.

I also copied the awful naming convention as did others :) I was just explaining to him why his code, as pasted, wasn't working.

If you see someone trying to strike the wrong end of a match whilst looking for a gas leak, would you explain which end of the match he should be striking? :)

It's hard enough to get some people to take SQLi seriously, without telling them how to solve their problem the wrong way.

The thing about parameterised queries had already been given (mine wasn't the first solution) so there is no point in saying it again, as I stated above I was simply explaining to him why his code wasn't working, to sate his curiosity if nothing else.

Yeah, but guess which answer he'll pay attention to. :)
