You can use MySqlConnection and MySqlCommand to execute the insert statements to the database. For an example, have a look at MySqlCommand[^]


Dim i As Integer = cmd1.ExecuteNonQuery()
cmd1.CommandText = "UPDATE Table SET Status = @NewStatus"
Dim statusparam AS MySqlParameter = new MySqlParameter("@NewStatus", MySqlDbType.Long); 
cmd1.Parameters.Add(statusparam )
If (i > 0) Then
   statusparam.Value = 1
   statusparam.Value = 0
End If
i = cmd1.ExecuteNonQuery()

Dim cmd1 As MySqlCommand = New MySqlCommand("insert into table1 values username='" + txtusername.Text + "',password='" + txtpassword.Text + "'", con)

Dim i As Integer = cmd1.ExecuteNonQuery()
If (i > 0) Then


End If

This is a part of my this i want that if (i>0) then status(table2 column) should update as 1 else 0

So can you simply execute an UPDATE statement inside the if? Something like UPDATE Table2 SET Status = @NewStatus.

Note that I have used a parameter in the statement. You should never concatenate values to a Sql statement. This would leave you open to Sql injections, data type conversion problems and so on.

Have a look at the modified answer.

You're welcome :)

One more thing, since you're using multiple statements which logically require a single unit of work, don't forget to use transactions. See MySqlTransaction[^]
