Hello all,

My problem is that my class is not returning data at all and I'm stuck. the culprit I think is my in the class. I need help getting past it. I am posting the whole code so everyone knows what I'm looking at. the prepared statement is being filled out based on a value entered from another class. it works, I have verified, this class allows for people to see a Spreadsheet like view of the query instead of specific data. please, any ideas or help would be awesome! thanks!

Well, you are suppouse to return an String[] and you are returning null, you get the data from the DB, store it in a ResultSet but you donĀ“t manipulate that ResultSet, so if you just return null... what do you expect the aplication to do?

You should manipulate the data of the rs and stored it somehow in a String[]
I agree. Here's the link:
