insert data into table

Thanks to some help, I now have my tables created. I'm now trying to load the data into the first table. I have a file that I'm the info from and trying to insert it in the table.

This is not working but I can't find any examples of what would work. I've found examples for insert literals but not variables.

I'll assume that you're using a Statement (from a Connection.createStatement() invocation).
Try this modified code out for size.
Before too long of fussing around with funny looking string concatenation and character escaping and single-quote matching, you'll probably want to discover the use of a PreparedStatement. Try a quick search on this forum for example uses of a PreparedStatement.
