what is the solution for the following problem..
created a form with textfields as title_of_project, names_of_students and supervisors.
whenever i try adding in any values to the title box..
the tomcat window shows an error.
that..
java.sql.SQLException: [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]The name '
mechanical' is not permitted in this context. Only constants, expressions, or va
riables allowed here. Column names are not permitted.

Well, looks like you're sending a bad SQL query. I don't think we can help figure out your problem without seeing your database code.

Your SQL query is probably not correct.
You must have entered "mechanical" value for any of the text field title_of_project or names_of_students or supervisors and while making a database operation it is not going in quotes probably !!! try to print your query and operate it using any dB client.

Moving to the JDBC forum awaiting the SQL code for analysis.

following is the code i wrote for inserting values into the database:
<%@ page language="java" import="java.sql.*,java.io.*" %>
<%
Connection con=null;
java.sql.Statement stmt=null;
String level="";
String project_title="";
String student_names="";
String co_supervisor="";
int year=0;
String xy=(String)session.getAttribute("y");
if(xy==null)
xy="jyotsana";
level=request.getParameter("level");

project_title=request.getParameter("project_title");
student_names=request.getParameter("student_names");
co_supervisor=request.getParameter("co_supervisor");

year=Integer.parseInt(request.getParameter("year"));

System.out.println("the value of level is:"+level);
System.out.println("the value of project_title is:"+project_title);
System.out.println("the value of student_names is:"+student_names);
System.out.println("the value of co_supervisor is:"+co_supervisor);
System.out.println("the value of year is:"+year);

try
{
Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
con=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc dbc:mech_iit");
stmt=con.createStatement();
out.println("insert into project_supervised(user_login,level,project_title,student_names,co_supervisor,year) values('"+xy+"','"+level+"','"+project_title+"',"+student_names+",'"+co_supervisor+"',"+year+")");

int i=stmt.executeUpdate("insert into projects_supervised(user_login,level,project_title,student_names,co_supervisor,year) values('"+xy+"','"+level+"',"+project_title+",'"+student_names+"',"+co_supervisor+","+year+")");
System.out.println("the value of:" +i);
System.out.println("the value of:" +i);
stmt.close();

con.close();
}
catch(Exception e)
{
System.out.println(e);

}

%>

can anyone tell me where does the problem lie
Thanks

You are missing the single quote before the student_names variable. You may want to consider using prepared statements to avoid this problem. Then you don't have to deal with the quotes.
