In this article I will explain with an example, how to Insert data into SQL Server database using Stored Procedure in ADO.Net in ASP.Net MVC.
Note: For beginners in ASP.Net MVC, please refer my article ASP.Net MVC Hello World Tutorial with Sample Program example.
I have made use of the following table Customers with the schema as follows.

I have already inserted few records in the table.

Stored Procedure
The following Stored Procedure will be used to Insert data into the SQL Server database table.
This Stored Procedure accepts Name and Country parameters, which are used to Insert the records in Customers Table.
CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[Customers_InsertCustomer]
      @Name VARCHAR(100),
      @Country VARCHAR(50)
      INSERT INTO [Customers]
The Model class consists of following properties.
public class CustomerModel
   public int CustomerId { get; set; }
   public string Name { get; set; }
   public string Country { get; set; }
You will need to import the following namespaces.
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
The Controller consists of following Action methods.
Action method for handling GET operation
Inside this Action method, simply the View is returned.
Action method for handling POST operation
This method accepts CustomerModel object as a parameter.
Inside the Action Method, an object of SqlCommand class is created and the INSERT query is passed to it as parameter.
The Name and Country values are fetched from their respective TextBoxes using CustomerModel class object and passed as parameter to SqlCommand object.
The ExecuteScalar function is executed and the records are inserted into the SQL Server database table using ADO.Net.
Note: For more details on how to use ExecuteScalar function, please refer Understanding SqlCommand ExecuteScalar in C# and VB.Net.
public class HomeController : Controller
    // GET: Home
    public ActionResult Index()
        return View();
    public ActionResult Index(CustomerModel customer)
        string spName = "Customers_InsertCustomer";
        string constr = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["constr"].ConnectionString;
        using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(constr))
            using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(spName, con))
                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
                cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Name", customer.Name);
                cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Country", customer.Country);
                customer.CustomerId = Convert.ToInt32(cmd.ExecuteScalar());
        return View(customer);
Inside the View, in the very first line the CustomerModel class is declared as Model for the View.
The View consists of an HTML Form which has been created using the Html.BeginForm method with the following parameters.
ActionName – Name of the Action. In this case the name is Index.
ControllerName – Name of the Controller. In this case the name is Home.
FormMethod – It specifies the Form Method i.e. GET or POST. In this case it will be set to POST.
The View also consists of an HTML Table, which consists of TextBox, DropDownList created using Html.TextBoxFor, HTML.DropDownListFor methods respectively and a Submit Button.
Then, the CustomerModel is checked for NULL and if it is not NULL then, the value of the CustomerModel is displayed using JavaScript Alert Message Box.
@model ADO_Net_MVC.Models.CustomerModel
    Layout = null;
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    @using (Html.BeginForm("Index", "Home", FormMethod.Post))
        <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
                <th colspan="2" align="center">Customer Details</th>
                <td>Name: </td>
                    @Html.TextBoxFor(m => m.Name)
                <td>Country: </td>
                    @Html.DropDownListFor(m => m.Country, newList<SelectListItem>
                    { new SelectListItem{Text="India", Value="India"},
                      new SelectListItem{Text="China", Value="China"},
                      new SelectListItem{Text="Australia", Value="Australia"},
                      new SelectListItem{Text="France", Value="France"},
                      new SelectListItem{Text="Unites States", Value="Unites States"},
                      new SelectListItem{Text="Russia", Value="Russia"},
                      new SelectListItem{Text="Canada", Value="Canada"}},
                      "Please select")
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    @if (Model != null)
        <script type="text/javascript">
            $(function () {
                alert("Inserted Customer ID: " + @Model.CustomerId);
