Hi,

In what form are your links? Are the Strings or...?

Could you write a few example links?

How are the links stored?

You could use Arrays.sort() or Collections.sort().

hi,
the links are like this:

<a target='mypopup' href='popup.jsp?organizationid=<%=rs.getString( "organname") %>'><%=rs.getString("organname")%></a>

Do something like this:

import java.util.Vector;
import java.util.Collections;

Vector v = new Vector();
while (rs.next()){
  String organname=rs.getString("organname");
  v.add(organname);
}
Collections.sort(v);
for (int i=0; i<v.size(); i++){
   out.println("<a target='mypopup' href='popup.jsp?organizationid="+v.elementAt(i)+">'>"+v.elementAt(i)+"</a>";
}

Hope it helps,

Nic

hi,

I tried that :

..........part of the code:
     do
         {

String organname=rs.getString("organname");
if(!v.contains(organname)){

v.add(organname);

Collections.sort(v);
for (int i=0; i<v.size(); i++){

   out.println("<a target='mypopup' href='popup.jsp?organizationid="+v.elementAt(i)+"'>"+v.elementAt(i)+"</a>");



%>



<br>


<%


}
}
         }while(rs.next());
     }
.........

I don't know why duplicate links are being displayed eventhough i put a distict link in sql statements as well as
if(!v.contains(organname))

and the link are not displaying ailphabetically.

Did i miss anything, thanks

you can simple append " order by organname" to the end of your sql statement.
