I have am using ExecuteNonQuery to get number of rows inserted But i found that it returns -1 even though rows are successfully inserted. I am using simple insert statement.
ExecuteUpdtCmdWithRetry = Cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
here Cmd is a parameter which contains the sql insert statement.
The ExecuteNonquery return proper value.But sometime returns -1 and then it keeps showing -1 if any number of insert is done. but all values successfully inserted.Only problem with ExecuteNonQuery returning -1.
This error comes only to a single database. For all other database in that server ExecuteNonquery returns proper value.So what may be the problem that causes this?
Here is complete details on what problem i am facing
Problem with “ExecuteNonQuery’”:
We are using VB.Net & in the below code sample ‘ExecuteNonQuery’ method returns -1 while executing Insert & update statements even though actually rows have been affected.
Public Function ExecuteUpdtCmdWithRetry(ByVal Msfgmain As AxMSFlexGridLib.AxMSFlexGrid, ByVal Cmd As DbCommand) As Integer ExecuteUpdtCmdWithRetry = -1 Dim AttemptCnt As Integer = 1 Dim QueryString As String = Cmd.CommandText Do While AttemptCnt <= 3 Try ExecuteUpdtCmdWithRetry = Cmd.ExecuteNonQuery() Exit Do Catch ErrorObj As Exception MsgBox(Err.description) End Try Loop End Function Sample query that are set to the command: Insert into [customer]([Id]) values('531067') Update [customer] set [Phone no]='09966949119' where Id='531067'
For first few updates/insert ‘ExecuteNonQuery’ return proper value, later on it returns -1 & it repeats continuously. Once the program is closed & opened again it works properly for few updates/inserts.
Below change done in the code before the command ‘ExecuteNonQuery’, now the return value of ‘ExecuteNonQuery’ is proper.
When ‘set Nocount off’ is done then the result is proper. Why is this happening? Whether ‘Nocount’ is set ‘on’ in-between? We have 2 SQL Server installed in different PC. Error comes only for the database kept in one server (other database in server have very few inserts. We haven’t checked them) & in the other server Insert statement never returned -1. (Update statements we have not checked) We have tried shifting of data to new database & new table in the same server but still the error persists. Initially when this error started we found some errors while running ‘DBcheck’ command which have been repaired immediately, but still the error persists.
