Can we use 2 update statements in one SQLDatasource?

1 solution

Of course you can!

<asp:sqldatasource id="YourSqlDataSource" runat="server" xmlns:asp="#unknown">
    ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:YourConnectionString %>" 
    UpdateCommand="UPDATE YourTable SET YourColumn = '0';
    UPDATE Your2ndTable SET Your2ndColumn = '1' WHERE ID = @ID;">
        <asp:parameter name="ID" />

Hi I am using update statement in deletecommand however I am getting error message as "must declare scaler variable @UpdatedBy" however delete is not working , update is perfectly working fine.
Please see the below code.
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:AddConnectionStrings %>" SelectCommand="SELECT ID,Name,Address,UpdatedBy,UpdatedDate FROM [Data]where Status=1 and Id=@Id order by Name" DeleteCommand="UPDATE [Data] SET [Status] = '0',[UpdatedBy]= @UpdatedBy,[UpdatedDate] = @UpdatedDate WHERE [ID] = @ID" InsertCommand="INSERT INTO [Data] ([Name], [Address][UpdatedBy],[UpdatedDate]) VALUES (@Name, @Address,@UpdatedBy,@UpdatedDate)" UpdateCommand="UPDATE [Data] SET [Name]= @Name, [Address] = @Address,[UpdatedBy]= @UpdatedBy,[UpdatedDate] = @UpdatedDate WHERE [ID] = @ID" > <SelectParameters> <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="GridView1" Name="ID" PropertyName="SelectedValue" Type="Int32" /> </SelectParameters> <asp:Parameter Name="ID" Type="Int32" /> <asp:Parameter Name="UpdatedBy" Type="String" /> <asp:Parameter Name="UpdatedDate" Type="DateTime" /> <asp:Parameter Name="ID" Type="String" /> <asp:Parameter Name="Name" Type="String" /> <asp:Parameter Name="Address" Type="String" /> <asp:Parameter Name="UpdatedBy" Type="String" /> <asp:Parameter Name="UpdatedDate" Type="DateTime" /> <asp:Parameter Name="ID" Type="int32" /> <asp:Parameter Name="Name" Type="String" /> <asp:Parameter Name="Address" Type= "String" /> <asp:Parameter Name="UpdatedBy" Type="String" /> <asp:Parameter Name="UpdatedDate" Type="DateTime" />

Do you execute your update command with the "enable editing" option of your GridView?

We don't have all the information to help you,

Why all your "parameter" tags aren't in for example? Do you really redefine your "UpdatedBy" parameter of your Update command?

If any insert/delete/update occurs in my detailsview then i want to save updatedby and updateddate filed in the table.

protected void DetailsView1_ItemUpdating(object sender, DetailsViewUpdateEventArgs e)

e.NewValues["UpdatedBy"] = Session["UpdatedBy"];
e.NewValues["UpdatedDate"] = DateTime.Now.ToString();

protected void DetailsView1_ItemInserting(object sender, DetailsViewInsertEventArgs e)
e.Values["UpdatedBy"] = Session["UpdatedBy"];
e.Values["UpdatedDate"] = DateTime.Now.ToString();


in case of update and insert above code is working fine.however when I am trying to delete then I am getting message as must declare scalar varibale @updatedby.

the same way I have wrtieen the code for deleting.

protected void DetailsView1_ItemDeleting(object sender, DetailsViewDeleteEventArgs e)

e.Values["UpdatedBy"] = Session["UpdatedBy"];
e.Values["UpdatedDate"] = DateTime.Now.ToString();


Please advice.-

I do not think you actually assigns values ​​to your parameters in your method "DetailsView1_ItemDeleting".

This is a rather special case, why not try something like this?

ID="SqlDataSource3" runat="server"
DeleteCommand="UPDATE [Data] SET [Status] = '0',[UpdatedBy]= @UpdatedBy,[UpdatedDate] = getdate() WHERE [ID] = @ID"><deleteparameters><asp:SessionParameter
Name="UpdatedBy" SessionField="UpdatedBy" />

Your parameters will be defined somewhere.
