Hi All, Please, help me check this code

public Data class{
....
private static void new(){
PreparedStatement ps = conn.prepareStatement("INSERT INTO Members " +
"VALUES(?, ?, ?, ?)");
ps.setString(1, "14");
ps.setString(2, "Mike");
ps.setString(3, "Nwabikwo");
ps.setString(4, "14/10/2008");
ps.executeUpdate();
}

public static void main(String [] arg){

....
new();
}

}
Where conn is a Connection object that connects to JDBC-ODBC
When I tried to run it, I expect it to update the Database but it does not
and no exception is reported.
Please, tell me where the problem is.

Try to avoid the JDBC-ODBC bridge. It ha s bug that caches some statements so they don't actually get to the database.
To get the statement to run, either set autocommit(true) on the connection, or run a dummy select (ie a valid select operation, but you don't care about the result) on the dtaabase.

Actually, the issue is not the connection (I have never seen the JDBC-ODBC bridge do that, BTW.). The issue is ps.executeUpdate

Try ps.execute();

or maybe commiting the connection?

try the query in this way:
1) INSERT INTO Members (columnName1, columnName2, columnName3, to_char(columnName4,'dd/mm/yyy') VALUES(?, ?, ?, ?)"

2) always close the connection and commit the record
ps.close();
cnn.commit();

Hope this will help to solve your problem

Thanks

How do you get it to compile when you are using a keyword like that? Please look at this FAQ.
