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

private void alterTable()
	{
		Statement lStat=null;
		try
		{
			lStat=getConnection().createStatement();
			//lStat.executeUpdate("ALTER TABLE " +getTableName()+" ADD COLUMN DATA VARCHAR");
			lStat.executeUpdate("ALTER TABLE " +getTableName()+" DROP DATA_BASE");
			lStat.close();
		}
		catch(Exception e4)
		{
			System.out.println("Error!"+e4);
		}
	}

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