JdbcOdbcDriver option problem

I can make a connection to a Ms-Access database and retrieve the data into the ResultSet.
But now I decided I wanted to make my ResultSet scrollable so I can insert and delete so I updated my statement handler as follows :

Statement stmt = con.createStatement(
But when I now make a connection I receive an error that tells me that the option is not available.
I there a way to solve this or should I try something else ?
Thanks for any input....

Hi mate,
From what I know, to get a scrollable resultset, there are two conditions. The database you are using must support it, and the JDBC driver you are using must support it. So, there is not much you can do, other that to move to another database,like Oracle, with those capabilities.
hope that helps.
