I am new to java and am taking a java class, where I have to make a mortgage calculator allowing the user to either enter all info, principal, term and interest or enter the principal and then use a predefined term and interest rate. Thus far I have the layout and have begun to work on the "predefined" variables. I am using a combo box to allow the user to select the term which will then select the interest. However, when I choose the term through the combo box I recieve an error a bunch of errors in the netbeans IDE. But I cannot figure them out. Can someone please revice the code and tell me what I have done wrong.

Thx
