Default Datagrid Does Not Update ...

Hey All,

I am trying to update the data using adatagrid control, but i have a problem. Basically, when i press the edit and the text boxes show up with the data, i chage the data in any of them, but when i press update, nothing changes. I used the debugger and i noticed that simply the cell content do not change (i.e. stick back to the orginal values of the cell). Here is the code:

    Private Sub articlesDG_UpdateCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridCommandEventArgs) Handles articlesDG.UpdateCommand
        Dim myID, authorNew, thisAuthor, subject, category As TextBox

        Dim try1, try2, try3, try4 As TextBox
        'variables used during debugging
        thisAuthor = CType(e.Item.FindControl("Author"), TextBox)
        try1 = e.Item.Cells(2).Controls(0)
        try2 = e.Item.Cells(3).Controls(0)

        myID = e.Item.Cells(2).Controls(0)

        Dim SQLstr As String
        SQLstr = "Update articles set Author='" & thisAuthor.Text & "' where articleID = " & myID.Text

        articlesDG.EditItemIndex = -1

    End Sub
I appreciate your help.

Forget the Update event, concentrate on the Edit -it illustrates the point
