Hi all.
The following code is just a little utility to read data from a DAT file and put it in an access database.

(Its nothing special, I'm sure you guys have a better way of doing this.)
I am getting an error when I compile that it doesnt recognise myCon.
------- Compiler Output ------
UpdateAccessUtility.java:58: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : variable myCon
location: class UpdateAccessUtility
Statement stm = myCon.createStatement();

Any ideas? I have declared it in the same class.
Thanks guys
regards
Ian

You declare adn intialize myCon in a try block so that the variable is local to that block. Move the declaration outside of the block and you'll be ok with that part. You're going to need to catch the SQLException that can be thrown by that statement though. All you catch is an IOException after that try block.
hope that helps
