Strings.......

i have an array of strings declared as so:
String[] jstrings =
{
"<html><H2><B><FONT COLOR=Black>Name</H2></HTML>", //jstring[0]
" ", //jstring[1]
};

i then retrieve a value from a database known as report name which i want to set as the text in jstring[1]. This is done using
jstring[1] = reportname;
from debugging i know that the correct result is contained in jstring[1] after this.

however i wish to display these strings in a table using:
Object [][] data = {
{jstrings[0], jstrings[1], " ", " "},
{jstrings[2], " ", " ", " "},
};

but jstring[1] contains a null value at this point!

can anyone help?

Are you saying that (String)data[0][1] is equal to null, when you expected it to contain a report name?

Codster,  I'd look into using collections such as Vector, instead of arrays.  There's almost no need for arrays in Java (almost).

//This way you can do:
Vector jstrings = new Vector();
jstrings.addElement(reportname);

//Then to display the string contained in
//a certain place (let's say 1):
jstrings.elementAt(1);

//You might have to cast it, because it will
//return an object and not a String.
(jstrings.elementAt(1)).toString();

yes the string should contain report name

i am using arrays because there are many elements in the array not just the three that i specified

Why would that require arrays?

We'll talk about containers later. What we need to know is everything that happens between your valid string and your invalid string.

First of all, confirm that 1 and 2 below are correct propostions, then show the code in between:

1. System.out.println(jstrings[1]) gives a valid report name.
2. System.out.println((String)data[0][1]) gives 'null'

Need to see more code, from what you've shown there is no way that either jstrings[1] or data[0][1] could be null.
