Hello pals,
this is a code snippet in which I insert two strings into MSACESS .while
Im able to insert the string myname,Im not able to insert pc.Is there any problem with making more than one prepared statement on a connection object or is it some silly sql syntax error?
public void storePhone(String x,String y){
myname=x;pc=y;
try{
System.out.println("in storephone pc="+pc);

String sqlname="INSERT INTO PHONEDIARY(NAME)VALUES(?)";
ps=con.prepareStatement(sqlname);
ps.setString(1,myname);
ps.executeUpdate();


String sqlphone="INSERT INTO PHONEDIARY(PHONENUMBER)VALUES(?)";
ps2=con.prepareStatement(sqlphone);
ps2.setString(2,pc);

ps2.executeUpdate();

}
catch(Exception e){}
}
Thanks in advance for the help!

Rajesh,
Some databases don't support having multiple statements open on a connection at the same time. In any case, you want to close your PreparedStatement object as soon as you are done with it to conserve resources. In this case, that would be immediately after the first update.
