    Hi all,

    I want to search a particular row from a datatable and display it on datagrid. Am using sql queries to do search operation. The statements i have written in code is like this(am using a cldb dll here)

    private void Search_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)


    ds = clDb.oDb.executeDataSet("Mydatabase","SELECT * FROM Books WHERE '"+listBox1.SelectedItem.ToString()+"' = '"+searchtxtbx.Text+"'");

    dataGrid1.DataSource = ds;

    dataGrid1.DataMember = ds.Tables[0].ToString();


    When i click on search button it is showing empty screen on datagrid. Can anyone pls tel me where i have done the mistake..

    Hi Priya,

    Acually you have done one mistake in the String concatenation concept

    You just remove the single quote start and end point of the  listbox1.SelectedItem.ToString().

    ds = clDb.oDb.executeDataSet("Mydatabase","SELECT * FROM Books WHERE  Remove['] "+listBox1.SelectedItem.ToString()+" Remove['] = '"+searchtxtbx.Text+"'");

     Now you try after remove this single quotes.

     Good Luck
