Hello Experts,

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Too few parameters. Expected 3.

Appears i need 3 values for my Prepared Statement. I only have 2 in sql statement. What am i doing wrong?

Thank you

public boolean testUpdateStatement(Contact c)
		String strSQL = "UPDATE contactAddress set first_name = ? WHERE contactID = ?";
			PreparedStatement ps = connection.prepareStatement(strSQL);
			ps.setString(1, c.getFirstName());
			ps.setInt(2, c.getContactID());
		catch(SQLException sqle)
			return false;
		return true;
