What is the datatype of extnum in your table?

Use PreparedStatement all the way. It not only eases setting non-standard typed Java objects in your SQL, but it also saves you from SQL injection attacks and singlequote headaches.

Prepare here: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/jdbc/basics/prepared.html
