Hey hi . . i am trying to run this part of code but problem is that it is not updating my access database
System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand cmd1 = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand(command, con1);

System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand cmd2 = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand("UPDATE * from " + table_name + " order by Name", con1);



We are reading .mdb file and trying to sort it . . but it is not sorting :(

Make sure when you post a question,
1. headline should reflect what the problem is.
2. Do mention urgent, it is considered rude. This reduces chances of your question being answered.

Your whole premise is ridiculous. There is absolutely no need at all to sort data in a database table. You sort the data when it's queried.

You should be using the following :
System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand cmd2 = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand("SELECT * from " + table_name + " order by Name", con1);

If you look closely you will see that it is not what is in your question!

Ohhh ya . . but i did changes .. problem is that it is not saving tht file !
Refer to the following link on using Update statement with access.
UPDATE Statement (Microsoft Access SQL)[^]

also, looking at your update statement there is no set clause or where clause, what is it updating ?

Yes thr is no Where clause . . we just want to sort it according to Name u say . . .
Don't know what command you're passing in cmd1 (it also doesn't matter in this case) but using the ORDER BY Statement is only allowed in association with SELECT command.

"SELECT * from " + table_name + " ORDER BY Name", con1
should work for you.

Please take care of capitalization when using SQL Commands, it's clearly readable then.

Yeahhh . . everything is working fine while debugging .. but main problem is that it is not saving that file !! It is sorting but not saving i guess

As Mehdi Gholam also noticed you're using wrong association between commands (postet at same time), you'll need a subquery like this:
UPDATE table SET Name='something' WHERE Name in (SELECT * FROM Table WHERE Name='test' ORDER BY Name DESC);

ya i did that changes .. code is running successfully but it is not saving !
El_Codero 17-Apr-12 13:54pm    
you're using above UPDATE example now?if it's not saving I think you have some error in query command. please try to write the command as easy as it could be to make suke UPDATE command works, then add other statements like ORDER BY. we don't have a view into your database structure.

no m using select command . .
Sorting a database table is completely useless.

You sort data when you query it ; there is absolutely no reason to sort the table itself.
Let the data engine handle the database, and focus on your requirements.

Please pick one of the link from Maintaining sort order of database table rows[^]

Hope it helps :)
