I have a servlet that uses JDBC to connect to Access and reads a table. I need to display the data retrieved from the table on an HTML screen in editable mode. In othe words, the user should be able to change the data that I display on the screen, eg., updating user profile.
I am doing the following but it's not working:
htmlString +="TD>" + dbRS.getString(1) = "</TD>";
I would appreciate any feedback.
Thanks,
Vineet

If you want it editable then you have to put the results into text boxes using html input tags.
