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

You didn't like my answer the last time you asked this?
If you want it editable then you have to put the results into text boxes using html input tags.

So you have to do this:
htmlString =+ "<td><input type=text name=field1 value=" + dbRS.getString(1) + "></TD>";
