This is my code to access an MS-ACCESS database in java

private static boolean prepareStationCodeNameTable(){
        Statement stmt; // SQL statement object
        String query;   // SQL select string
        ResultSet rs;   // SQL query results

        ArrayList contentTypes = new ArrayList();
        query = "SELECT st-code, st-name from station";
       
        try {
            stmt = con.createStatement();
            rs = stmt.executeQuery(query);
            while(rs.next()){
                stationCodeMap.put(rs.getString("st-code"),rs.getString("st-name"));
            }
            System.out.println("--- Prepared Station Code and Name Map. Total Records are : " + stationCodeMap.size());
            return true;
        }catch(SQLException ex){
            ex.printStackTrace();
        }
        return false;
    }


BUT i am getting this error:

It means that your SELECT statement is not syntactically correct. It is posible that the ODBC bridge does not support all the SQL statements.

> SELECT st-code, st-name from station

Make sure that you refer to the proper variables and tables in the database.

DO the "st-code" and "st-name" exist in the table "station"? Does the table station exist? Also, not sure if it helps, but what happens if you take the minus signs off the table names?

Is "st-code" a valid column name in SQL?  I think it is not.  

the "-" is bad.

Also check if the path of the database you are accessing contains a dot (".").

This SELECT st-code, st-name from station should also work.

No it shouldn't in standard SQL.  What you are asking for is values for
  st minus code
  st minus name

Access may allow you to define such column names but grown up databases would not.

If they are defined I cannot see why they cannot be accessed. If they are not to be accessed then why does a databaselet you define them?
