I need to convert an arrayList to a string so I can pass the parameter into my method that requires a string parameter:

ArrayList repEmailList = RepresentationDAO.GetEmailList(anAddress.StateAbr);
//foreach (string emailAddress in repEmailList)

SendMail.Send(repEmailList, "info@compasslearning.com", "CompassLearning Sales Information Request", strmsg);

repEmailList needs to be converted to a string

Thanks for any help.

And I made a mistake in my code, it should have been:

  string addresses = "";
  foreach(string emailAddress in repEmailList)
    addresses += (addresses=="" ? "" : ";") + emailAddress;

  SendMail.Send(addresses...

But that should do it!

If I may ask, what is this line doing:  addresses += (emailAddress=="" ? "" : ";") + emailAddress;

the correct one is,

  addresses += (addresses=="" ? "" : ";") + emailAddress;

It checks to see if this is the first email address and if not, includes a semicolon before adding it.  It is so you do not have an extra ';' either at the start or the end of your string.
