Solution 1

The error is here

VALUES (@Lastname,@Firstname,@Fathername,@Birthday,@City,@Phone,,@Photo)
//use as below remove the extra comma

VALUES (@Lastname,@Firstname,@Fathername,@Birthday,@City,@Phone,@Photo)

And about that parameter

Add(New SqlParameter("@Photo", What in this?))

it will probably be a byte array you would create from image file you need to store

Best of luck!!

What can i put in photo parameter?

You need to create a byte array as I hope in the database you column datatype will be varbinary or image where you need the bytes of image

byte [] img=File.ReadAllBytes("image name");

Add(New SqlParameter("@Photo",img));

Remove semicolon as it wont work in VB
