Welcome to JavaRanch!

Can you print the stack trace for the SQLException and post it here? That usually gives more details as to what the problem is.

how to add the ODBC drivers and JDBC drivers and where i placed it?
As long as the ODBC driver is installed in windows, it will be found. You don't need to worry about it beyond ensuring it is there. The Drivers for the JDBC-ODBC bridge are included in the Sun classes and is always available when you use the Sun JDK.

Have you set up an ODBC datasource pointing to your database on your computer? Also, I'm assuming you're using an Access database?
I agree. Here's the link:
