    Default Column count doesn't match value count at row 1

    	public static boolean sentBan(String username, long time, String reason) {
    		DatabaseConnection connection = World.getConnectionPool().nextFree();
    		if (connection == null) 
    			return false;
    		try {
    			Statement stmt = connection.createStatement();
    			ResultSet user = stmt
    					.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM `vbulletin_user` WHERE username = '"
    							+ username + "'");
    			if (user.next()) {
    				int userId = user.getInt("userid");
    				int groupId = user.getInt("usergroupid");
    				int displaygroupid = 0;
    				String usertitle = user.getString("usertitle");
    				int customtitle = 0;
    				int adminid = 1;
    				long bandate = System.currentTimeMillis() / 1000;
    				long liftdate = time;
    				/* Inserting the bans */
    				String sql = "INSERT INTO vbulletin_userban (userid, usergroupid, displaygroupid, usertitle, customtitle, adminid, bandate, liftdate, reason) "
    						+ "VALUES ('"
    						+ userId
    						+ "', '"
    						+ groupId
    						+ "', '"
    						+ displaygroupid
    						+ "', '"
    						+ usertitle
    						+ "', '"
    						+ customtitle
    						+ "', '"
    						+ adminid
    						+ "', '"
    						+ bandate
    						+ "', '" + liftdate + "')";
    				return true;
    		} catch (Exception e) {
    		} finally {
    			if (connection != null) {
    		return false;

    I'm receiving this stacktrace when I try to use the above code.

    So, which is line 60?

    What am I doing wrong?
    Perhaps there is no reason for the exception. More plainly, you have an INSERT statement specifying 9 columns, but you only specify 8 data values.

    I'm no database expert, but I often see people suggest you use PreparedStatement in place of those string concatenations. It protects against SQL injection attacks (if those might be a problem), but also gets the quoting right and adapts itself to the syntacical quirks of whatever dbms you are using.
