Hello,

I'm new to using JDBC and for making a query select.... WHERE column = variable

how do you format the select statement?

this is what I have and the query doesn't work.

Don't do it that way. Use a PreparedStatement which uses parametrized queries instead. Like this:


That's assuming that your employee_id column is actually declared as a text column in the database and not a numeric column.
