SQL/VB.NET Replace function?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hello all,

I'm having trouble with using the Replace command. I'm either trying to do it through SQL code or VB.NET. Here is my code:

 strSql = "INSERT INTO [ABC].[ABCD].[ABCDE] ([RecordName], [Title], [Code], [Date]) " & _
                        " VALUES (Replace('" & strInnerSplit &"', ""'"", ""), '" & lblCEMTopic.Text & "', '" & lblCEMName.Text & "', '" & lblCEMDate.Text & "')" & _
                        " SELECT [RecordName]" & _
                        " FROM tblRecords " & _
                        " WHERE NOT EXISTS(SELECT [RecordName] FROM [tblRecords]" & _
                        " WHERE [RecordName] = '" & strInnerSplit & "')"

Basically i'm getting input that contains single quotes and I want to replace them with a blank space.

When I try this with VB.NET I get a this error:

Error    1    Overload resolution failed because no accessible 'Replace' accepts this number of arguments.  166    37  

Thanks in advance!

Can I replace the EntityObject as base-class in Entity Designer 3.5 sp1?


I'm using EF3.5sp1 for a project, and I've been working around many of its problems... as such, my entity partial classes have a lot of logic in them for change-tracking and whatnot.  Obviously, I'd like to factor this logic out into a common base class, but of course all my objects must derive from EntityObject.  Is it possible to tell them to derive from some class of my own invention (which would actually likely derive from EntityObject themselves)?

I'd rather avoid editing the EDMX file unless the changes will be safe on entity-model-update, since I'm still making changes to the database schema in this early state of my project.


Also, is there any good workaround for the fact that the change isn't tracked when you change EntityReference.EntityKey?

connection to SQL Server files (*.mdf) require SQL server express 2005 to function properly.


I dont have the SQL EXPRESS installed instead I have SQL Standard Edition.

 I have two SQL Server instances installed.

 1- UserLT (this is sql 2000)
2- UserLT\SQL2005 (this is SQL 2005 named instance)

But when i try to add a database to my VS website project I get the following error:

Connection to SQL Server files (*.mdf) require SQL server express 2005 to function properly. please verify the installation of the component or download from the URL: go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkId=4925

I went in Tools>Opetions>DataBase tools>Data Connection>Sql Server Instance Name (blank for default)

and changed the "SQLEXPRESS" to "USERLT\SQL2005".

But I still get the same error message. Any ideas how i can resolve this issue?

Public Shared function doubt????

I am using VB.net/ASP.NET and SQL Server 2000 for a web application.

For populating the dropdowns, I wrote a Public Shared function LoadDDL(), in which I pass the dataset and dropdown name to set.

I have my doubts that this function will produce unexpected results for concurrent users. And will mix the results among sessions because it is a Shared function.

I am confused here. Is it the right way to go?

Please advice. Thanks in advance.

>>>How to use javascript function in aspx file?



I have a file util.js and there some funtions in same file.

For example functions name are keyUp, keyDown, isNumeric, isAlphaNumeric

I have used these functions in aspx code behind in a textbox to restrict user that he may not be able to input any special character.

Before, I used the code directly in aspx file but I have do it for different textboxes therefore to avoid much coding in aspx file I created util.js and put all code in this file but how to use these particular functions in aspx file I couldn't find the way.

Anyone have idea. Do share with me.

I used the reference like this:


' Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="8pt" Onkeyup= "keyUp(event.keyCode)" Onkeydown="return isAlphaNumeric(event.keyCode);" onpaste="return false;">
