I'm developing a c# window application.

I have 5 textboxes,(txtqty1, txtqty2, txtqty3, txtqty4 and txtqty5).

I want to insert the data from the textboxes into a database in the Qty field, but I want to insert data with For loop.

Is it Possible.?

Thanks in Advance

Yes - but it probably isn't a good idea.

You can either:
1) Set up an array of TextBoxes, and assign your boxes to it:
TextBox[] boxes = new TextBox[] { txtqty1,txtqty2,txtqty3,txtqty4,txtqty5};
foreach (TextBox t in boxes)
   ... // Add to db

2) Use the Form.Controls collection to run through each control, and add each textbox:
foreach (control c in Controls)
   TextBox t = c as Textbox;
   if (t != null)
      ... // Add to db

Either way, it's not a nice way to do things.

In either case, remember to use the db Command object Properties.AddWithValue method to avoid SQL injection attacks.
