I don't see that method in the API (for java 1.4) What version of java are you using?

Welcome to the Ranch "Laurel Hardy"!
You'll find this forum a great place to seek help on JDBC, and there aren't many rules you'll have to worry about, but one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and change your display name to match it.
In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious (much as I enjoy your nod of recognition to Laurel and Hardy).

For your convenience, here's the JavaDoc for java.sql.ResultSet and, as Jeanne pointed out, there is no "getChar()" method.
What are you trying to accomplish? Maybe we can help ...
