I have a java application connected to microsoft access 2013 with JDBC.
If the user will add a student, he should fill the empty fields. But the problem is that if the user keeps one field empty like his city, an error is displaying saying that there is an error in the insert into statement. But if he fills all of them its working correct.

The statement is the following.

String AddStudents="INSERT INTO STUDENT VALUES('"+IdentityField.getText()+"','"+FNameField.getText()

+"',"+  AdvisorField.getText()+")";

So validate the input prior to attempting to construct your SQL statement.

It means that City field does not accept NULL values ;)

Please, folow these links:

[EDIT #1]
Another solution is to define the order of fields:
INSERT INTO TableName (Field1, Field2, Field3,... FieldN)

Probably, you're trying to insert values which is not acceptable for this field.

Remember, date fields must be preceded and ended with # sign.
INSERT INTO TableName (StringField, DateField, IntField)
VALUES('myString', #2013/05/26#, 1)

No the field accepts Null values. For example when i open access and create a statement like this: INSERT INTO STUDENT
VALUES (450, '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '');

Its working, but executing from java application giving error

See my answer now ;)
I don't know Java, but in my opinion you should test for null.
Add a function like
public static string testString(String str) {
   string temp = "";
   if (str != null) {
      temp = str;
   return temp;

and test all your fields
// so on..

Try to output your AddStudents string and then use it as is directly in Access
