C# Code to fill database does not give error but does not fill database?

1 New Member
I am a Web programmer and I'm working on my first desktop application as a favor for a friend. I'm sure I have a stupid error here, but there is no error being thrown so I can't figure out what is wrong. I have code that reads an excel file and fills a datagridview and it works just fine. It is also supposed to fill a database though and that is not working. The executeNonQuery command is returning a 1 which as I understand, means it has successfully updated the database. And as I said, no error is thrown. Yet when I open the database nothing has been added. If anyone can figure out what's wrong with my code I would really appreciate it. Like I said, this will be my first Windows form app and so I'm thinking there may be a problem with my connection string or something. But the fact that there is no error and 1 is returned is really confusing. Any help will be greatly appreciated, I'm driving myself crazy here! Here's the code...
