It appears that you are using the default route which is defined as this:

    name: "Default",
    url: "{controller}/{action}/{id}",
    defaults: new { controller = "Home", action = "Index", id = UrlParameter.Optional }

The key part of that route is the {id} piece. If you look at your action method, your parameter is k instead of id. You need to change your action method to this so that it matches the route parameter:

// change int k to int id
public ActionResult DetailsData(int id)

If you wanted to leave your parameter as k, then you would change the URL to be:


You also appear to have a problem with your connection string. In your web.config, you need to change your connection string to this (provided by haim770 in another answer that he deleted):

  <add name="EmployeeContext"
       connectionString="Server=.;Database=mytry;integrated security=True;"
       providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
