writing to sql server from C#, no errors returned


I am trying to write to a database from c#:

using (SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection()) { try { connection.ConnectionString = "Data Source=nesoi;Initial Catalog=SalesDWH;Integrated Security=True"; // This creates an object with which you can execute sql using (SqlCommand command = connection.CreateCommand()) { command.CommandText = @"INSERT INTO [SalesDWH].[dbo].[PendingSpecimens] ([Date Entered] ,[Specimen ID] ,[Test] ,[Agency]) VALUES (@DateEntered,@SpecimenID,@Test,@Agency)"; command.CommandType = CommandType.Text; // This is how you add a parameter to your sql command // This way you are protected against SQL injection attacks SqlParameter DateEntered = command.CreateParameter(); DateEntered.ParameterName = "@DateEntered"; DateEntered.Value = fields[0]; command.Parameters.Add(DateEntered); SqlParameter SpecimenID = command.CreateParameter(); SpecimenID.ParameterName = "@SpecimenID"; SpecimenID.Value = fields[1]; command.Parameters.Add(SpecimenID); SqlParameter Test = command.CreateParameter(); Test.ParameterName = "@Test"; Test.Value = fields[2]; command.Parameters.Add(Test); SqlParameter Agency = command.CreateParameter(); Agency.ParameterName = "@Agency"; Agency.Value = fields[4]; command.Parameters.Add(Agency); connection.Open(); int someint=command.ExecuteNonQuery(); } } catch(Exception ee) { textBox1.Text = ee.ToString(); }

In addition to no errors being returned, it has not written anything either!

What am I doing wrong?

I suspect that this line:


is not working.

Mut I do not understand why

please help!


Try this:

using (SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection("Data Source=nesoi;Initial Catalog=SalesDWH;Integrated Security=True")) { string queryString = "INSERT INTO SalesDWH.dbo.PendingSpecimens([Date Entered], [Specimen ID], Test, Agency) VALUES (" + fields[0] + ", " + fields[1] + ", " + fields[2] + ", " + fields[4] + ")"; SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand(queryString, connection); command.Connection.Open(); command.ExecuteNonQuery(); }


Maybe you are missing the parentheses in the values clause?
