In this article we will discuss, how to use ExecuteNonQuery () method in ASP.Net c#. When we want to perform insert, update or delete by using ExecuteNonQuery().
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
//Create the connection object
SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ShoppingZone"].ConnectionString) ;
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("insert into employee values ('zubair', 'male','melapalayam')",connection);
//Since we areperforming an insert operation, use ExecuteNonQuery()
//method of thecommand object. ExecuteNonQuery() method returns an
//integer, whichspecifies the number of rows inserted
int rowsAffected =cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
Response.Write("InsertedRows = " +rowsAffected.ToString() + "<br/>");
catch (Exception ex)
// HandleExceptions, if any
// The finallyblock is guarenteed to execute even if there is an exception.
// This ensures connections are always properlyclosed.
