sql: problem with matching data types

P: 9
Hi. I want to insert data to ms access but I think I have a prob with data types.

This is my code.

savebutton.addActionListener( new ActionListener()
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)


con= DriverManager.getConnection(url);

String sqlStatement = "insert into PatientDB(PatientID,Name,Surname,Phoneno,Dateofbir th,Complaint) values(numberinput.getInteger(),nameinput.getText( ),surnameinput.getText(),phoneinput.getInteger(),d ateofbirthinput.getInteger(),tet.getText())";
PreparedStatement pstmt = con.prepareStatement(sqlStatement);



catch(ClassNotFoundException ex)

catch(SQLException ex)



java.sql.SQLException: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Undefined function 'numberinput.getInteger' in expression.

  1. INSERT INTO PatientDB ([PatientID],[Name],[Surname],[Phoneno],[Dateofbirth],[Complaint]) VALUES ( numberinput.getInteger(),nameinput.getText( ),surnameinput.getText(),phoneinput.getInteger(),d ateofbirthinput.getInteger(),tet.getText())";
It's not a data type problem, just a syntax problem in the Insert Into query, making a reference to a variable, etc with closing ()'s makes Access look for a function in a vba code module. I'm not an expert on the way your refer to controls or variables in Java, but it looks like that is what you are trying to do.

Here is an example from a test db of mine that shows correct syntax for vba, you'll have to explore a little more on the Java side of things to find out how to make those references in Java, take a look at our Java forum for more specific help there:

  1. MySQL = "INSERT INTO tblTimeDiff ([TransID], [TimeDiff]) VALUES ('" & Temp1 & "','" & Temp2 & "');"
It takes the variable Temp1 and concatenates it's value into the TransID field, and the Temp2 variable likewise into the TimeDiff field.
