problem with rs.getString

I want to do different things based on the results of a field in my table. I can do a

and it will show me the correct information. But when I try this line
if (rs.getString("admin_type").equals("ORGIN")) {...
I get an sql exception.
could someone please tell me what is wrong with this line, or if I am totally off base how I can implement an if statement based on the result of a field in a dbase.

thanks in advance
never mind I figured it out. I added a vector like this

Vector type = new Vector();
added a string
String[] admintype = null;
and then added this code
admintype = new String[type.size()];
now this line works
if (admintype.equals("ORGIN")) {...
(thought I would add this in case any other newbie had a similar problem.)
