Hi, I developed a simple java program and used jdbc-odbc to link to a local MS Access database to do some simple adding / deleting and traserving of records. Everything works fine till i used rs.previous();

It gives me an error saying "ERROR: java.sql.SQLException: Result set type is TYPE_FORWARD_ONLY"...  How do i resolve this ? I wanna access my previous records

try {
              Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
              String dataSourceName = "Testdatabase";
              String dbURL = "jdbc:odbc:" + dataSourceName;
              Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(dbURL, "","");
              Statement s = con.createStatement();
              s.execute("select * from publications");
              ResultSet rs = s.getResultSet();       
                        rs.next();
              
                    //txtTel.setText(rs.getString("title"));             
                    //txtareaAddress.setText(rs.getString("year"));                               
              rs.previous(); << --- ERROR
              // Rest of codes...

From the Microsoft Access help file, referencing the Execute method of a connection object:

The returned Recordset object is always a read-only, forward-only cursor. If you need a Recordset object with more functionality, first create a Recordset object with the desired property settings, then use the Recordset object's Open method to execute the query and return the desired cursor type.

I don't know the exact syntax for Java but I imagine it would look something like this:

ResultSet rs
rs.Open "select * from publications", s, 2, 3n
