    Default insert to MySQL table


    I try to insert a new post into a MySQL table.
    I have done this before with success. This time I am trying to do it a little different.
    In my other case I had a input from fields corresponding every column in my table.
    Now I have input fields to, but not for the ID. This is set to be Auto Increment in MySQL.

    The problem is that I get error when I try to insert a post. It complains about the number of columns.
    I understand this to be it needs the exact amount of columns inserted as the table has.

    Here is my insert code:
    Java Code:
    Connection connection = Connector.getConnection();
            PreparedStatement ps = null;
            String query = "INSERT INTO ContactTable(FirstName, LastName, Address, Zip, City, Phone, MobilePhone, Date)"
                            +" VALUES(?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?)";
                    try {
                ps = connection.prepareStatement(query);
                ps.setString(1, firstname);
                ps.setString(2, lastname);
                ps.setString(3, address);
                ps.setString(4, zip);
                ps.setString(5, city);
                ps.setString(6, city);
                ps.setString(7, phone);
                ps.setString(8, mobile);
                ps.setDate(9, date);
            } catch (SQLException ex){            
                Logger.getLogger(ContactTable.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);  
            } finally{
                try {
                } catch (SQLException ex) {
                    Logger.getLogger(ContactTable.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
    Any suggestions?

    Default Re: insert to MySQL table

    There was not the same amount of "?"...

    But another question: After this code is run I am trying to reload the content of a table. Any suggestions of how this code should look like?
