Default problem with Updating a table


i try to update field 'name' (nvarchar(5) in sql server) of table 'mytable'.
This happens in event DetailsView1_ItemUpdating with my own code.
It works without parameters (i know, bad way) like this:
SqlDataSource1.UpdateCommand = "UPDATE mytable set name= '" & na & "'"

But when using parameters like here below, i get the error:
"Input string was not in a correct format"

Protected Sub DetailsView1_ItemUpdating(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.Web.UI.WebControls.DetailsViewUpdateEventAr gs) Handles
SqlDataSource1.UpdateCommand = "UPDATE mytable set name= @myname"
SqlDataSource1.UpdateParameters.Add("@myname", SqlDbType.NVarChar, na)
End Sub

I don't see what's wrong here.
Thanks for help

Send a message via Yahoo to gaurav_jain2403

This line is incorrect:-
SqlDataSource1.UpdateParameters.Add("@myname", SqlDbType.NVarChar, na)

You should write it as follow:-
SqlDataSource1.UpdateParameters.Add("@myname", System.TypeCode.String, na)
