DataSource Controls :: Datatable Data Types And Command Parameter Datatype?

Apr 7, 2010

I am using VS 2008.I am building a datatable of records to be inserted into a SQL Server 2005 table.
The program loops through this table and builds a SqlParameter for each DataColumn in the datatable. The SqlParameters are used in the SQL Insert statement.

The field I am having a problem with is of type 'bit' in the database table and has no default value and cannot be nulls. The field is called 'Active' The meaning of this field in the application is Boolean i.e True or False. When inserting the record, I wish to default the field to "False".

When I define the columns in the datatable I am forced to use the following code to build the datatcolumn containing the boolean field i.e. dtcActive.DataType = GetType(Boolean) as there is no GetType(Bit)

Dim dtcActive As New DataColumn("Active")
dtcActive.DataType = GetType(Boolean)
dtcActive.Unique = False
dtcActive.AllowDBNull = False
dtcActive.DefaultValue = False

However, when I build the SqlParameter I am forced to use this:

If field.ColumnName = "Active" Then
prm.SqlDbType = SqlDbType.Bit
prm.Value = "False"
End If

This is because there is no SqlDbType.Boolean. The problem I have is there is no value I have been able to give the SqlParameter that is accepted by the Insert statement. It complains that the boolean field cannot be null on Insert.

C# - Changing DataType Of Column In DataTable From DateTime To String

Nov 24, 2010

I'm loading data from my database into a DataTable, and one of the columns is a date field.


I'd like to format that column so that instead of containing a full date, it will be formatted like "MM/DD/YYYY".

I've tried looping through each row in the table and changing the cell for that column, but I get an error saying that the string isn't a valid DateTime object.

I tried changing the column DateType to a string, but I get an error saying I can't change the DateType after the table is filled.

How can I do this? This seems like such a simple thing, but I'm having so much trouble with it.
