for starters.
a sql command is generally of the format
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. select fieldName from table
a where clause is put after the sql statement.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. select fieldName from table where [id] = 1234567
1. I dont see any select query...and the database has no source to select table, fields.

2. is id a varchar field or a numeric field?
if it is a numeric field , get rid of the single quotes around the number as that will throw an error. single quotes define strings.

Thanks Shashi.

That helped.

but I did not do that way because I had my database and table mapped to the sqldataadpter so i thought i don't need to specify that.

Oh got into another problem.

I change my query string to:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. string getqis = str.ToString();
  2. Qcheckdata.SelectCommand.CommandText = " select * from  Pass_Insp where [id] = 'getqid'";
  3.  
it doesn't give me any result and don't know why?

Thanks,

did you want to do this?
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. string getqis = str.ToString();
  2. Qcheckdata.SelectCommand.CommandText = " select * from  Pass_Insp where [id] = '"+getqis+"'";

You may either refrence project 1 in project2 and use the same session class being shared.
Or you could sent the request as a query string as in http://yourwebsite.com/yourpage.aspx?report=ppp
where pp is the query param value.

but i am not sure if the security will have to be compromised for this

Good practice is you have to use LIKE keyword for string in where clause.
(I think this should be move to Sqlserver form!)

hello :-)

try to complete your statement..... are you using select statement?

or change you field name, instead of id, try different name like EmpID for employee ID...

hope this can help with your problem....

This is one more good point.
Do not use Sql Keywords like

Id
Description
Date
Like
Where
Name
group
….
…..
….
Etc…,
