Hi All,


I have made a quiz servlet program and here I am trying to check if a user is there, then check their previous score, the else statement is working to create a new user in the DB if no score is present.
I'm convinced it has something to do with my syntax, but can't figure out what it is, as I have similar Queries at other sections of my servlet that are working fine.



Thanks for any help,

Brendan

Hi Brendan,

Can you please use proper setXXX methods for sql statements? It is not that hard and saves a lot of time when passing values to queries Here you can start.

Regards,
Fatih.

what happens if the user exists but doesn't have a previous score.
But as you haven't told us what the actual problem is, I am just guessing.
