Hi Vicneswaran Boi,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Your first problem here is that you're using executeQuery() for a DELETE statement. Obviously a DELETE doesn't return a ResultSet, hence your error. Look at executeUpdate() instead. You will also probably need to change "DELETE * FROM" to "DELETE FROM" unless the database you're using is non-standard. Note also that you shouldn't be using the JDBC/ODBC bridge or Statement (rather than PreparedStatement) unless you're just playing or have no alternative.

In future posts, please take more care when stating your question. Your problem is when running - you said compiling. Also state your error exactly as you get it. If you surround your code with the UBB [code] and [/code] it will preserve the formatting and make it easier to read for those willing to help you.

I did the execute update but i seem to find this error....

incompatible types
found : int
required: java.sql.ResultSet
ResultSet columns = statement.executeUpdate("Delete FROM Member WHERE Pid ="+ id); ^

Thank you in advance

you should read the docs first. the method executeUpdate() will return you an int, not a ResultSet. and i think the error would be:

incompatible Datatype
found: ResultSet
required: int
I agree. Here's the link:
