hi, looked at previous posts and tried this code to add to my access database:
java.util.Date d = new java.util.Date();
java.sql.Date date = new java.sql.Date(d.getDate());

PreparedStatement ps;
ps = myConn.prepareStatement("INSERT INTO TestTable"+"(Eventdate)"+ "values (?)");
I tried this and got an java.sql.SQLException: General error
Having serious problems with this i am trying to create a calendar system in JSP so the date is key to my code

Try putting spaces between the pieces:

ps = myConn.prepareStatement("INSERT INTO TestTable "+"(Eventdate)"+ " values (?)");
Right now your statement would look like:
INSERT INTO TestTable(Eventdate)values (?)
