    Hallo, SQLite experts!

    On the following statements :

    cmd.CommandText="UPDATE WPOILABEL_V1 SET PHOTO1 = Text1 ,PHOTO2 =Text2, PHOTO3 = Text3 WHERE ID=ActCampID;"

    I get the error message: SQLite error: No such column Text1

    WPOILABEL_V1 is really a table and PHOTO1 , PHOTO2 and PHOTO3 are really columns.

    What am i doing wrong?

    Hello Harry,

    test the following syntax:

    cmd.CommandText="UPDATE WPOILABEL_V1 SET PHOTO1 = '" &Text1& "' , PHOTO2 = '" &Text2& "', PHOTO3 = '" &Text3& "' WHERE ID= '" &ActCampID& "' "

    Bon Chance

    Here is a reference to the SQLite documentation.
    What are Text1, Text2?
    Are these Textbox controls?
    If not then you should write:
    cmd.CommandText="UPDATE WPOILABEL_V1 SET PHOTO1 = 'Text1' ,PHOTO2 ='Text2', PHOTO3 = 'Text3' WHERE ID='ActCampID';"

    Erel and Fontanus,

    Thanks for your help; it works now fine. I was confused where to use single and double quotes and &&.

    Hallo Fontanus,

    Back to an old problem.

    Can you explain me the need to use '"& ___&"' around each variable. Who is doing what with each pair of symbols? In the case I presented Text1, etc just are variables, local to the update sub

    I have tried your sample code and that of Erel. I got your solution working, that of Erel not. No error was raised , but the row just was not updated. I don't know why.

    So, I was happy with your solution until version 5 was released. Now none of both solutions work on the PDA. See also my new topic on this subject.

    Do you have an idea?

    The & signs are used to combine the variables with the strings.
    If you do: msgbox(cmd.CommandText) you shouldn't see any & sign.
    My solution didn't work cause I assumed that Text1/2/3 are not variables.

    Thanks for the explanation of quotes, etc.. Looking at the sentence in a msgbox makes it clear.

    The problem is solved. I used the cmd.New1() and Reader.new1 repeatingly to refresh a table after update of the data base. SQLite desktop accepted this, SQlite device gave error messxages: two for each update.

    I now have added dispose and AddObject for both and now it works also on the device.

    These things are beyond your control I guess?

    It is always better to dispose the old object before creating a new one, making sure that all resources are freed.
