Hello Ranchers

i don't know why it is showing the error like this

java.sql.SQLException: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Operation must use an updateable query.

here is the code below

<title>Updating User information

<%@ page language="java" session="true" import="java.sql.*" %>


String name = request.getParameter("name");
String toupd = request.getParameter("name1");
String desig = request.getParameter("desig");
String comp = request.getParameter("comp");
String addr = request.getParameter("addr");
String ph = request.getParameter("ph");
String mob = request.getParameter("mob");
String fax = request.getParameter("fax");
String email = request.getParameter("email");
String email1 = request.getParameter("email1");
String aname = request.getParameter("aname");
String amob = request.getParameter("amob");
String aemail = request.getParameter("aemail");
String plot = request.getParameter("plot");
String city = request.getParameter("city");
String place = request.getParameter("place");
String country = request.getParameter("country");
String d = request.getParameter("descr");


catch(ClassNotFoundException e)

String dbURL = "jdbc dbc:address";

Connection dbCon;

dbCon = DriverManager.getConnection(dbURL);

PreparedStatement ps = dbCon.prepareStatement("UPDATE addr SET name =?,desig=?,comp=?,plot=? ,city=? ,place=? ,country=? ,ph=? ,mob=? ,fax=? ,email=? ,email1=? ,aname=?, aemail=? ,amob=?, d=? where name="+"'"+toupd+"'");

ps.setString(1, name);
ps.setString(2, desig);
ps.setString(3, comp);
ps.setString(4, plot);
ps.setString(5, city);
ps.setString(6, place);
ps.setString(7, country);
ps.setString(8, ph);

ps.setString(13, aname);
ps.setString(14, amob);
ps.setString(15, aemail);
//ps.setString(16, relation);

Hey check the Database and see if there is write permissions for that Database.
For writing into .mdb, u need to have write permissions for that database.

I'd try just using ps.execute() instead of ps.executeUpdate() and see what happens. Another thing to try is to introduce another bind item for:

just in case that string concatenation is something causing you to end up with something unparseable.
