Hi,

I'm having trouble executing a PreparedStatement against a MS Access database. The query string, taken using Eclipse debugger during runtime is:

and I do

where pstmtFetchPage is the PreparedStatement.

When I execute the statement, I get the following error:


I really can't see what I'm doing wrong. Any help is very much appreciated.

cheers.

Abe,
The database is complaining about the first question mark (the one after the keyword top.) In JDBC, you can't substitute just any part of the SQL in through a prepared statement. Basically, you can only put a value in (for the where clause.) You are going to need to build the first part of the statement dynamically.
