Welcome to the Javaranch.

Try to use table aliases with the column names in your where condition.

Hi Masood ,
it seems to me that P_NUM is neither any attribute nor defined var in the block.
confirm this thing and have a check.

it should solve the prob.

No doubt, using table-alias will make it clear - to - understand ur code ( courtesy Adeel bhai ).

Cheers !!!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
