Make sure it is able to connect to your database and are there any records in your table ?

And change the import to
<%@ page import="java.io.*,java.lang.*,java.sql.*" %>

its not able to find the .mdb file.
try to give relative path of your .mdb file, avoid giving absolute path.
you should change the path to E:/Tools/Tomcat/webapps/examples/TiH/TiH.mdb
and make sure TiH.mdb is in specified path

    String database = "jdbc:odbc:Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=



    String database = "jdbc:odbc:Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=E:\\Tools\\Tomcat\\webapps\\examples\\TiH\\TiH.mdb";

And consider not using Access... ;-)

avinthm thanx for ur help
actaul rpoblem was with the format in which i was pcefying the path
u said u should write comlete path "e:\tools\tomcat...)
but that didn't solved the problem
the corrcect solution was to write path as "E:\\tools\\tomcat....) ,means i have to use double slashes instead of single

once again thanx for ur concern and sorry too as i could not divide points between two ppl
> u said u should write comlete path "e:\tools\tomcat...)
i think u got my point wrong. i asked u to change the path....i have specified forward slash (/) instead of backward slash (\).

Anyway, your problem is solved. Thats more important than points. :)
