Hi friends

In my program i am getting max(ID) an interger value from the resultset.I don't know how to convert that into integer.

String s3 = "select MAX(ID) from SALES_EMPLOYEE_MASTER";
ResultSet resultset = statement.executeQuery(s3);

If I use int maxid=resulltset.getInt(1); , I ma getting error.Please help me to how to retrieve a interger value from the resultset..

Thanks in advance

I had a similar problem last week, which turned out to be caused by not calling the next() method on my ResultSet object. Remember a ResultSet defaults to cursor on line "0" so you have to call next() (or first() or absolute(1) or similar) to get to a result at all.

If that doesn't help, please post some more code.

Or tell us what the error is. Details are always helpful, whereas vague statements like "I got an error" are not.
I agree. Here's the link:
