Hi, I have encountered a problem that if I used PreparedStatement to insert records, then JDBC will pad spaces in the fields. But if I used regular statement, then the insert is fine. Is this is normal? Is there any way I can fix this problem? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks -VD
Is the datafield giving you this problem is of type CHAR ? if yes, Try VARCHAR and see if this works as in the SQL standard, CHAR is a fixed length data type. In many DB's (not all), that means every character must match, including size and trailing blanks.

Thanks for the reply. The datafield is Varchar. But I found the real problem is the the setString() method. I still don't know why. I found a work around is to supply all the value in the update SQL statement when construct the preparedStatement. I need this work around use the JSTL SQL tag. :-( Thanks. -VD
