Your error message is not a "solution" to someone else's error!

If you want to ask a question, then ASK A QUESTION[^]. But you'll need to provide a lot more information that an error message if you want anyone to be able to help you.
The problem is that the when there are no records in your table the result of the
is DbNull. Which is a class. And you are trying to push it to an integer.

So my suggestion would be to first take the result of this into an implicitly typed variable(like var in C#, not sure about VB) and then check if its DbNull, push 0 to the Integer value else the actual value.

Alternate solution: Use the solution which Ashish suggested and put an ISNULL in your query itself.

rahul can u be little accurate...i didnt undertand i am doing my project in and i can show u screenshot of the error but i cant find any screenshot panel here 0_o?
This message you are getting due to there is no records in your table("employee_details")

so you can do one thing use Isnull function in your query like this

Select ISNULL(Max(emp_id),0) from employee_details

It will return 0 for first record.
