Cannot update records into MySQL database

Posted 11 April 2013 - 10:12 PM

I am working on part of a Web-Based Employee web application for Senior Project in Computer Science, creating a web form for adminstrators. I cannot get the UPDATE statement to update the values for the current E-mail address stored in the admin_business_profile ([email protected]). Our Senior Project group is using MySQL Workbench to manage the database.

And here is the website showing how to connect to a MySQL Database using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010:
My link

Below are the credentials for the database we are currently using:

MySQL/SQL Server dcm.uhcl.edu
MySQL/SQL Server Username c486813sp01g1
MySQL/SQL Server Password ****
MySQL Database Name c486813sp01g1

Here is my code for the Business_Profile.aspx web form:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Business_Profile_Page.aspx.cs" Inherits="Employee_Scheduling.Business_Profile_Page" %>

            catch (MySqlException ex)

Originally, I used an integer value for the Zip Code, but whenever I clicked on the "Save and Continue" button on the web form, I got an error message as shown below "Error when using Zip Code as integer" jpeg file. However, right now the zip code data type has changed from int to varchar(5). But after filling all of the fields and clicking on the "Save and Continue" button, the message as shown in the attached "MySQL exception message - email address" jpeg file. Should i consider changing something in the UPDATE statement?

well, @ is a special character in SQL ('username'@'database'). and strings usually do not go unquoted into queries.
