Helo again:
(Part2 - Return of the faulty code)

This returns 1 row to my JSP:

Java Bean:
ResultSet RS             = SQLStmt.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM links WHERE description like'%university%';");

When I call the same method with JSP:

Vector data = databaseBean.GetConnect(strSQL);
(i have output strSQL to the page - it does output university, so i am passing in the correct string)

In my Bean:

      public Vector GetConnect(String strSQL)
      {
          ........
               PreparedStatement ps = ObjConn.prepareStatement("SELECT * FROM links WHERE description like?;");
            ps.setString(1, strSQL);
            ResultSet RS = ps.executeQuery();

I get no rows returned
As you may have guessed from my previous questions I am a complete beginner when it comes to JSP and Beans so is there something i am missing?  Do i need to do anything with the strSQL after it is called into the method?

Thanks,
Can you tell me for reference what the % actually does?
is it working?

% means to match any number of characters. as you said that strSQL does output university. if you just do like 'university', the database only returns record exactly matches university. if you need aal records contains university, you need wildcast match, that is what % for.
