    Default Problem with Java/MySQL query...

    I seem to be getting an error

    ERROR: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1

    try{
                   con = DriverManager.getConnection(url+dbName,userName,password);
                      System.out.println("Connected to the database");
                   PreparedStatement pst = con.prepareStatement("INSERT INTO accounts(username, accessLevel, password) VALUES (?,?,AES_ENCRYPT=('"+passwordE+"','enigma')");
                   pst.setString(1, jTextField1.getText());
                   pst.setInt(2, accessLevel);
                   pst.executeUpdate();
                            con.close();
                              System.out.println("Disconnected from database");
                                    new Menu().setVisible(true);
                                    this.dispose();
                 } catch (SQLException e) {System.err.println("ERROR: " + e.getMessage()); }
             }

    Your SQL syntax is incorrect. Make sure the SQL you are passing to the PreparedStatement is correct SQL syntax (for example, AES_ENCRYPT is typically called without the equals sign - should also make use of the PreparedStatement and rather than string concatenate, use the '?' for the encryption variables)
