Hello, I am a new commer to JAVA. I am using oracle as my database. I have this problem of when I write data in to a table, entries get entered in random positions. I mean for example if there are already 3 entries in a table and when i enter a new entry the new entry goes to the top of the table other than appearing in the 4th row. Could you please tell me how to over come this. Thank

As far as I know you cannot overcome this issue. It is how Oracle handles deleted records, and inserts. If it did not work this way, then your table size would increase as if all your deleted records were still there. Insert order should have no effect in your queries. You just need to remember to have indexes where you need them, and order by in your queries. Mark
