    Re: Auto Increment ID

    Pawan are you talking about Auto Increment ID in SQLServer? If yes then follow these steps without creating any method..

    1.Open SQl Server Management Studio Express.
    2.Go to your Database.
    3.Rigth click on your Database Table Name.
    4.Then Click on Modify.
    5.In modify window click on your " ID" column Name.
    6.Change its Data Type to int.
    7.Then go to Column Prorerties below.
    8.Under the "Indentity Specifications" nodes you will see (Is Indentity).
    8.Set this property "Yes".

    Re: Auto Increment ID

    Hi Mr. Singh,

    I followed your snippet however I am getting an error "Input string was not in a correct format." Highlighted in red.
    Here's the snippet
    if (dr.Read())
                            {
                                string d = dr[0].ToString();
                                if (d == "")
                                {
                                    txtstudid.Text = strTesda;
                                }
                                else
                                {
                                    r = Convert.ToInt32(dr[0].ToString());
                                    r = r + 1;
                                    txtstudid.Text = r.ToString();
                                }

    Any idea why it causes this error? Thanks.

    Re: Auto Increment ID

    Hi Sheen Buhay,

    Debug your code and check what value you have in dr[0].ToString(). I thing you might be getting Alphabets or symbols.

    Suggestion: Don't just copy and paste the code snippet provided in the forum as those are not generalize, those are specific set of code used to accomplish a specific task. Please do modify the code according to your requirement.

    Thanks
