Hi, When I parse this code: Select name frome employees where name="smith"; in MS-access, the result is, obviously, a field with the name smith (if it exists) However, when I use former mentioned query in the following line ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery(query); I get a 'too few parameters, expected 1" error. DSN and other stuff is good because query 'select name from employees;' works fine. I try'd PreparedStatement as was told somewhere else in this group, but then I'll get 'Driver does not support this function'. Using Visual Age for Java 3.5 on W2K and trying to access MS-access2k, standard sun's jdbc-odbc driver. any help is welcome, grtz, Lex
I finally got it working using PreparedStatement. Now I know, ms-access probably needs prepared statements. This is working: String query = "Select name From Employees Where name=?;"; PreparedStatement pst = con.prepareStatement(query); pst.setString(1,request.getParameter("name")); Building the string direct (" ....where name=\"" + name + " \";"; ) and passing it to a normal statement doesn't work. Now I need to know how I can make the ResultSet updateable; creation of the resultset via PreparedStatement doesn't give the possibillity to give params UPDATABLE etc. like creation via Statement does.
