Good Day, I am using an Ms Access Database to design a StockTracker applicaton. The application is used to check the stocks of users. Firstly I need to sign on as an administrator and then be able to add users and their stocks to the database. I have created the database in the program MakeDB.java. I have created another program StockTrackerDB.java that adds new records to the database, updates existing records and deletes old records. Then I use STLogon.java, to sign on to the StockTracker program. When I sign on the first time, I need to sign on as an administrator with the userid: admin01 and the same details for the password. When I run the program STLogon.java, it gives me the logon screen, then I enter the userid and password, but when I press enter, I get the error: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression ‘Pa_RaM000 firstName = Pa_RaM001’

I have searched for the error on the Web and it states that a parameter has been entered incorrectly. It refers to using " instead of ' signs, but I am using " where the firstName parameter is used in the code to create the first administrator (I will color this green). I have been looking in the MakeDB.java code to find the firstName parameter and don't know what it is I need to change here to get the program to work. Or am I looking in the wrong place? The code is very long and there are other programs and classes that also play roles in the execution of the application, which I am not attaching due to the fact that it would clutter the Thread.

The code for MakeDB.java:

public class MakeDB
{
	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
	{
		Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");

		String url = "jdbc:odbc:StockTracker";

		Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(url);
		Statement stmt = con.createStatement();

		// The following code deletes each index and table, if they exist.
		// If they do not exist, a message is displayed and execution continues.
		System.out.println("Dropping indexes & tables ...");

		try
		{
			stmt.executeUpdate("DROP INDEX PK_UserStocks ON UserStocks");
		}
		catch (Exception e)
		{
			System.out.println("Could not drop primary key on UserStocks table: "
			                  + e.getMessage());
		}

		try
		{
			stmt.executeUpdate("DROP TABLE UserStocks");
		}
		catch (Exception e)
		{
			System.out.println("Could not drop UserStocks table: "
			                  + e.getMessage());

Hi All, I am marking this thread as solved. There was a piece of code that I entered incorrectly in the Database Access Class. When I corrected my error, I could run my program withouth any further issues.
:)
