This is the query: StringBuffer sbQuery = new StringBuffer("");
            sbQuery.append("INSERT INTO ");
            sbQuery.append("inv_grp ");
            sbQuery.append("(inv_grp.assoc_cd, ");
            sbQuery.append("inv_grp.clb_cd,  ");            
            sbQuery.append("inv_grp.inv_grp_name, ");      
            sbQuery.append("inv_grp.inv_grp_desc, ");      
            sbQuery.append("inv_grp.inv_grp_disc, ");      
            sbQuery.append("inv_grp.status, ");      
            sbQuery.append("inv_grp.gl_account)  ");
            sbQuery.append("VALUES (?, ");
            sbQuery.append("?,  ");            
            sbQuery.append("?,   ");
            sbQuery.append("?,   ");
            sbQuery.append("?,   ");
            sbQuery.append("?,   ");
            sbQuery.append("?)   ");
            SQL sql = new SQL();
            
            try{
                        dbConn = sql.getConnectionObj();       
                        pStmt = dbConn.prepareStatement(sbQuery.toString());
                        pStmt.setString(1, UserAssocCd2);
                        pStmt.setString(2, UserClbCd2);
                        pStmt.setString(3, GroupName);                        
                        pStmt.setString(4, GroupDesc);
                        pStmt.setString(5, Discount);
                        pStmt.setString(6, Status);
                        pStmt.setString(7, GlAccount);
                        pStmt.executeQuery();
                  }

Here, the DB was updated with the input parameter values. As you can see I am trying to collect a result set. However, the error is saying that the statement did not return a result set. Thanks a lot  for your help.

pStmt.executeQuery();

should be

pStmt.executeNonQuery();

it seems that pStmt does not have a method pStmt.executeNonQuery(). Are you sure that it is a valid method, because I cant see it in Pstmt methods.
The problem, I guess, stems from the fact that the method executeQuery returns a resultSet. I just want to do an insert and dont need a result set. is there any method that i can use for this task. Thanks for your help.

looks like you are using java and not .net ...

the member would hence be
pStmt.executeUpdate();
