I have the following sql statement in my program:

This statement works as it will pick out the account numbers from the database. BUT when I input an account number that does not exist in the database it does not give me a SQLException, it just sits there !
Anyone have any ideas as to how I can tell the program that if it does not find the account number it should display a message ??
Any help appreciated,
Thanks

Hi Sarwar,
With all of the databases that I have worked with, when you execute a database query that does not return any rows, it is not an error (and therefore does not give an "SQLException").
The "next()" method (in "java.sql.ResultSet") returns 'false' if there are no more rows in the result set. For an empty result set (i.e. a query that returns no rows), the first invocation of "next()" will return 'false', example:

Hope this helps you.
Good Luck,
Avi.
