Update TableAdapter with DataSet - Update requires a valid DeleteCommand error


In the code below what does "Update requires a valid DeleteCommand when passed DataRow collection with deleted rows." mean?

foreach (DataGridViewRow item in this.dataGridView2.SelectedRows) { fuelStopsDataSet1.Tables[0].Rows[item.Index].Delete(); } this.fuelStopsTableAdapter.Update(this.fuelStopsDataSet1.FuelStops);


It means that you are using a DataAdapter to update a table which contains deleted DataRows (their <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.data.datarowstate.aspx" rel="nofollow">RowState</a> is Deleted). Then the DataAdapter uses the specified <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.data.sqlclient.sqldataadapter.deletecommand.aspx" rel="nofollow">DeleteCommand</a> to delete this row in the database. But you haven't provided it.

So you need to provide it.

<a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.data.sqlclient.sqldataadapter.deletecommand.aspx" rel="nofollow">MSDN</a> example:

public static SqlDataAdapter CreateCustomerAdapter( SqlConnection connection) { SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(); // Create the SelectCommand. SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM Customers " + "WHERE Country = @Country AND City = @City", connection); // Add the parameters for the SelectCommand. command.Parameters.Add("@Country", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 15); command.Parameters.Add("@City", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 15); adapter.SelectCommand = command; // Create the InsertCommand. command = new SqlCommand( "INSERT INTO Customers (CustomerID, CompanyName) " + "VALUES (@CustomerID, @CompanyName)", connection); // Add the parameters for the InsertCommand. command.Parameters.Add("@CustomerID", SqlDbType.NChar, 5, "CustomerID"); command.Parameters.Add("@CompanyName", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 40, "CompanyName"); adapter.InsertCommand = command; // Create the UpdateCommand. command = new SqlCommand( "UPDATE Customers SET CustomerID = @CustomerID, CompanyName = @CompanyName " + "WHERE CustomerID = @oldCustomerID", connection); // Add the parameters for the UpdateCommand. command.Parameters.Add("@CustomerID", SqlDbType.NChar, 5, "CustomerID"); command.Parameters.Add("@CompanyName", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 40, "CompanyName"); SqlParameter parameter = command.Parameters.Add( "@oldCustomerID", SqlDbType.NChar, 5, "CustomerID"); parameter.SourceVersion = DataRowVersion.Original; adapter.UpdateCommand = command; // Create the DeleteCommand. command = new SqlCommand( "DELETE FROM Customers WHERE CustomerID = @CustomerID", connection); // Add the parameters for the DeleteCommand. parameter = command.Parameters.Add( "@CustomerID", SqlDbType.NChar, 5, "CustomerID"); parameter.SourceVersion = DataRowVersion.Original; adapter.DeleteCommand = command; return adapter; }

The last command is the DeleteCommand.


You can have the DeleteCommand be created automatically in some situations (inferred from the SelectCommand).

SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter("...SELECT Statement...", connection); SqlCommandBuilder cmd_b = new SqlCommandBuilder(da); // this already creates // the Update- and DeleteCommands for the DA
