How do I get rid of this error?

cannot find symbol
symbol  : class IOException
location: class SPPScreen
        catch( IOException ex) {

I have a try and a catch. In the sample code they do it the same way that I am.

catch( IOException ex) {
  "Error: " + ex.getMessage());

Why do I get this error and how do I fix it?

    You probably need to import*; at the top of your file.

    Thanks.. I had accidently deleted it along with some other files that I no longer needed.
