sql parmeter problem

P: 26
Dear all I got the following error while I trying to create database

Incorrect syntax near '@db'.

here is the code
string query = " CREATE DATABASE '@db' ON PRIMARY (NAME = @db FILENAME ='@file') ";

SqlConnection temp = new SqlConnection(@"Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Database = master;Integrated Security=True;Connect Timeout=30;User Instance=True;");
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(query,temp);

cmd.Parameters.Add("@db", textBox2.Text.ToString());
cmd.Parameters.Add("@file", file.ToString());
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;

Any idea?

You have to build your string properly. I think this is a C/Java-based code so, it will probably look like:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. string query = " CREATE DATABASE '+ @db + ' ON PRIMARY (NAME = ' + @db + ' FILENAME =' + @file+ ') ";
or something like it
