Like so many people you do not bother to tell us what the error is. Please, we cannot see your screen, so we have no idea what error messages you are referring to.

1 solution

If the query is fine, then the logical conclusion is that it's the connection object or connection string: use the debugger to see exactly what it contains, and also to look closely at the error message as the content is probably extremely relevant - error messages generally tell you why it was an error, and where. Without that, we can't do anything to help, and we can;t try you code against your database!

So break out the debugger, and start looking at "what" is going on. When you know that, you can start looking at "why" and fixing it - but not before!
