Hi All

I am using JDBC ODBC driver for connecting Java with Excel.
I am able to run insert, update, delete commands but when I am trying to use ALTER Table command it will give me following error:

Error!java.sql.SQLException: [Microsoft][ODBC Excel Driver] Invalid Operation

Can anybody please help..

Thansk in advance

its the M$ odbc drive that does not support it.
you would need to use an api (eg. jexcel) instead of jdbc
