VB.NET, SQL, and Access conflicts

I'm a senior in high school, and several people in my class are attending the Business Professionals of America National Leadership Confrence at the end of April. I am part of a team competing in the Software Engineering section, and the warehousing program we are building has run into some very vexing problems.

We are writing this in VB.NET with an Access database. The current problem we are running into is with the user administration table and forms. The User table is designed as (field/type-field/type): ID/Autonumber-Username/Text-Password/Text-LName/Text-FName/Text-Admin/Boolean. Our form simply has textboxes for the text fields and a combobox for the boolean value. When we build/run and try to add a user, it throws a syntax error in the following SQL code:



"INSERT INTO Users (Username,Password,LName,FName,Admin) VALUES ('" _
& txtUsername.Text & "','" _
& txtPass1.Text & "','" _
& txtLName.Text & "','" _
& txtFName.Text & "'," _
& "True)" _



Is this not a valid SQL statement? If noone here can find error with that code, then I'll be happy to include more information(Form Code, Database Class, any other suggestions).

  • have ya solved your prob already?

  • I have not used Access Much but this should help.

    One is 'Users' a reserved word in access? If so that could be your problem. It is a very good programming practice to enclose database tables and values in sqaure Brackets brackets.
    Ex:[code] SELECT * FROM [Users]
    SELECT * FROM [Users] WHERE [LName] = 'FooBar'[/code]

  • The problem is with the field name password. u can either change the field name to "pass_word" or any other word, or use the statement as follows


    "INSERT INTO Users (Username,[Password],LName,FName,Admin) VALUES ('"
    & txtUsername.Text & "','" _
    & txtPass1.Text & "','" _
    & txtLName.Text & "','" _
    & txtFName.Text & "'," _
    & "True)" _

    this will work.

    thank u
  • Good to hear that was it, but do yourself a favor, always enclose 'ALL' DB table and field values. It's good form.

    Just as a side note.....there are several reserved words in Access and VB.Net that don't show up on a list anywhere....You can call your fields anything else and then change the names to what you want in the DataGrid TableStyles/GridColumnStyles properties.
