    Updating a datarow in a datset

    Hi,

    I have an existing set of data in SQL which I am referencing as a DataSet object. I want to update some of the fields on one of the rows based on the info that is entered into a form.

    I have already set up the form so that it displays the fields of the row in question in a number of text boxes. When you click a check box it allows you to ammend certain fields. This is the information that I want to send back to the database.

    Should i be removing the old row and trying to insert the ammendments as new tow (with the same Id) or using a stored proc?

    Any ideas welcome.

    So only one row can be edited at a time? I assume you're not using GridView.
    Do you need the DataSet to be updated, and then use the DataSet to update your SqlDb? Or can you just update the SqlDb directly?

    There's several ways to go about this type of functionality, but the best approach depends on your requirements. A little more info might help some of us steer you in the best direction.

    >>Should i be removing the old row and trying to insert the ammendments as new tow (with the same Id) or using a stored proc?

    You can update any cell in the DataSet directly. There's no need to remove and insert new rows.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I sorted this out a while ago. I think I was forgetting to directly reference the correct row in the dataset or something like that.

    Anyway it's all working fine now
