i have this error.

java.sql.SQLException: General error
        at sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbc.createSQLException(JdbcOdbc.java:6987)
        at sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbc.standardError(JdbcOdbc.java:7115)
        at sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbc.SQLExecute(JdbcOdbc.java:3150)
        at sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcPreparedStatement.execute(JdbcOdbcPreparedStatement.java:214)
        at beans.customer.insert(customer.java:98)
        at org.apache.jsp.customer_0005fconfirm$jsp._jspService(customer_0005fconfirm$jsp.java:150)
        at org.apache.jasper.runtime.HttpJspBase.service(HttpJspBase.java:107)
        at javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:853)

and this is the code.

       public void getConnection() throws SQLException, ClassNotFoundException {
           try {
              Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
               conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:myDSN");
           } catch (Exception e) { e.printStackTrace(); }
        }
     
        public void insert() {
            try {
            getConnection();
            PreparedStatement pstmt=null;
            pstmt=conn.prepareStatement("insert into Customer values(?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?)");
            pstmt.setString(1, customer );
            pstmt.setString(2, customercode );
            pstmt.setString(3, warranty );
            pstmt.setString(4, ic );
            pstmt.setString(5, addr1 );
            pstmt.setString(6, addr2 );
            pstmt.setString(7, addr3 );
            pstmt.setString(8, postcode );
            pstmt.setString(9, state );
            pstmt.setString(10, area  );
            pstmt.setString(11, tel );
            pstmt.setString(12, handphone );
            pstmt.setString(13, dob );
            pstmt.setString(14, dop );
            pstmt.setString(15, dealer );
            pstmt.setString(16, status );
            pstmt.setString(17, remark);
            pstmt.setString(18, operator );
            pstmt.setString(19, date );
            pstmt.execute();
            }catch (Exception e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
        }

customer.java:98 is pointing to this line,
       pstmt.execute();

Can you tell me what is going on? I am using the ODBC-JDBC bridge. This is setting is done using the XP Profesional ODBC admnistrative task.
What is the "General Error" means? I am sure it's npt general for me.. Ha... :-)

i doubt this statement also


pstmt=conn.prepareStatement("insert into Customer values(?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?)");

should be some thing like this

pstmt=conn.prepareStatement("insert into Customer (customer,costomercode,... ) values(?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?)");


because table should containg only 19 columns when you follow your procedure

sudhakar, thank you for your time.

1. conn obeject was created at the beginning of my class. :-)
2. the prepared statement means i am creating the whole DB schema at one shoot. in my db, i have totally 19 fields. then i mean, foloow by the sequence, i insert it one by one.
3. During my design of the db, i set no one as a primary key. i doubt this is the one who causing me this problem.

By the way, what is the General Errors means for me? Is this general consist of what kind of error? Null Pointer? or data truncation?? etc..??

Try a pstmt.executeUpdate() rather than just an execute().
