Default Inserting records into a databae

Guys I am trying to use this to insert records into a database but I am getting this error: -

 OleDbCommand dbComm = new OleDbCommand(strSql, objConnection);
Line 60: dbComm.Parameters.Add("@CategoryName", OleDbType.NVarChar, 15);
Line 61: dbComm.Parameters.Add("@Description", OleDbType.NText);
Line 62:

This is my code,

<%@ Import namespace="System.Data" %>
<%@ Import namespace="System.Data.OleDb" %>

    <title>validating a text field</title>
    <form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
      <table id="Table1"
             style="Z-INEX: 101; LEFT: 8px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 8px"
             cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="300" border="0">
          <td style="WIDTH: 115px">
            <asp:Label id="Label1" runat="server">Category Name</asp:Label>
          <td style="WIDTH: 115px">
            <asp:TextBox id="txtCategoryName" runat="server" width="193"/>
          <td style="WIDTH: 115pix">
            <asp:Label id="Label2" runat="server">Description</asp:Label>
          <td style="WIDTH: 115px">
            <asp:TextBox id="txtDescription" runat="server" width="193"/>
          <td style="WIDTH: 115px" colSpan="2">
            <asp:Button id="btnInsert" runat="server" OnClick="btnInsert_Click" width="298" text="INSERT!" />
      <asp:RequiredFieldValidator id="rfvCategoryName" runat="server"
           style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 316px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 14px"
           ErrorMessage="Please insert the new category name"
           ControlToValidate="txtCategoryName" />

<script language = "c#" runat="server">

OleDbConnection objConnection;

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
  String strConnection = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0; data source=c:\\test\\Northwind.mdb";
  objConnection = new OleDbConnection(strConnection);

private void btnInsert_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    String strSql = "INSERT INTO Categories (CatergoryName, Description) VALUES (@CategoryName, @Description); SELECT @@IDENTY AS 'Identity'";

    OleDbCommand dbComm = new OleDbCommand(strSql, objConnection);
    dbComm.Parameters.Add("@CategoryName", OleDbType.NVarChar, 15);
    dbComm.Parameters.Add("@Description", OleDbType.NText);

    int iID;

      iID= Convert.ToInt32(dbComm.ExecuteScalar());
    catch (Exception ex)
      if (objConnection.State == ConnectionState.Open);

    Response.Write("The ID of the new record is: " +iID.ToString());

    dbComm.Parameters["@CategoryName"].Value = txtCategoryName.Text;

Any ideas

Hi there,

You are using SQL Server datatypes, instead of OleDb datatypes. NVarChar and NText are used in a Sql Connection.

Take a look at this page to find out the datatypes you need to pass.
