    ASP.Net 2.0 using VB on SQL 2005

    This is a two fold issue.

    I have a DetailsView control which users can insert or edit items. Editing
    works great. Insert works great however I need to display the form once the
    user has entered the information and clicked Add.

    1) Trying to get the record ID of the inserted record. ReturnValue doesnt
    appear to work properly so i'm using an OUTPUT value instead. I get Null
    reference errors when working with RETURN SCOPE_IDENTITY()

    2) Getting "Procedure or function cp_InsertPublication has too many
    arguments specified" error when trying to insert. See code below. All
    parameters match up fine.

    3) I've tried the following as well, and recieve the same errors:

    Protected Sub SqlDataSource1_Inserting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e
    As System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs) Handles
    Dim para As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlParameter("returnValue",
    TypeCode.Int32, 4, Data.ParameterDirection.ReturnValue)

    End Sub

    Hi, David,
