I am getting error while updating data in SQL in I am using VS2013.
Since query is long so I have separated using "&_" .
      ss = "UPDATE emp_master set empid=" & txtempid.Text & ",empname='" & txtename.Text & "',pfno='" & txtpfno.Text & "',dob=" & dtpdob.Value & ",gender='" & g & "'," & _
         "contact=" & txtcontact.Text & ",email='" & txtemail.Text & "',doj=" & dtpdoj.Value & ",address='" & txtaddress.Text & "',edu='" & txtedu.Text & "'," & _
         "nationality='" & txtNation.Text & "',bloodgroup=" & cmb_Bloodgrp.SelectedText & ", desig='" & txtdesig.Text & "',exp=" & txtexp.Text & ",salary=" & txtsalary.Text & "," & _
         "dept='" & txtdept.Text & "',pic=" & arrImg.ToString() & ",usertype=" & Cmb_utype.SelectedText & " WHERE empid=" & txtempid.Text & " "
      com = New SqlCommand(ss, con)
      MsgBox("Data Updated Successfully !", MsgBoxStyle.Information, MsgBoxStyle.OkCancel)

Additional information: Incorrect syntax near ','.

An object or column name is missing or empty. For SELECT INTO statements, verify each column has a name. For other statements, look for empty alias names. Aliases defined as "" or [] are not allowed. Change the alias to a valid name.

This is a mess. Plus your code is vulnerable to SQL injection. Use parameters in your queries! To debug this just have a look on the content of ss it should be obvious what's wrong there. If not, update your question with the text.

Do not concatenate strings to build a SQL command. It leaves you wide open to accidental or deliberate SQL Injection attack which can destroy your entire database. Use Parametrized queries instead.

The chances are that that would cure your problem at the same time as protecting your DB.
ss = "UPDATE emp_master SET empid=@EID, empName=@ENM, ..."
com = new SqlCommand(ss, con)
com.Parameters.AddWithValue("@EID", txtempid.Text)
com.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ENM", txtename.Text)

You're welcome!
EXP is a keyword -[^].
Wrap the exp column name in a [] bracket e.g. [exp].

In general, you should use command parameters in a query.
