I'm using this to update a date/time field, and at runtime, it can't find the function. Is this function a SQL/server function? I'm using Access as my database.
I've even tried NOW()... data type mis-match error
Thanks Imar, yes I tried Date() and the 'query builder' gives an error of:
'Your entry cannot be converted to a valid date/time value.'
I've tried 'TO_Date()'... runtime not found
I've tried several permutations there of and either gotten 'runtime not found' OR the same as above.
I'm using a combination of a datagridview(minimal columns) and a 'detail view'(all columns, with the update-date in a label, since "I" want to set it and not the user)
Is there a way to get control of the datarow and hence the date-update field, before the bindingsource.endedit and the tableadapter.update run? (it's the update that's giving me grief; for about 2 weeks now).
Thanks again. I did try the 'NOW()' function... I didn't use system.datetime.now in the query builder, but it's an idea... I will try it.
However, I have created a work-around. I created another updatequery and using the records 'autonumber' as the 'where' criteria, I'm able to force the record to update. The way I gain control of the data is that, since I'm displaying all the data anyway, I just validate and modify the 'textboxes' data, and the update uses the now() query as 'just another parameter'. The problem I had before was, I was trying to use NOW() in the 'query-builder' process... there it does not seem to work.
I can't paste a screen shot, but it's where you can modify the 'dataset-designed' query, and type in an 'expression' in the 'Set Value' column... anyway. Like I said I've made a work-around and here's my code that does work:
