StringBuffer buf = new StringBuffer("| Numbers: " ):
for (Iterator it = getEinList().iterator(); it.hasNext();)
{


int ii = it.next();

String s = "" + ii;


if(s.length() >4)buf.append("**-***" + s.substring(s.length()-4 ) + ",");
else buff.append(s);

  }

So I guess your list is made up of Integer objects - correct?

Or it is made up if String's which are only digits?

If its elements are Integer's, then the above code should work,

if its elementas are String;s, then insted of
---
int ii = it.next();

String s = "" + ii;
---
you  should just use:
---
String s = it.next();

then this should work:

StringBuffer buf = new StringBuffer("| Numbers: " ):
for (Iterator it = getEinList().iterator(); it.hasNext();)
{




String s = it.next();


if(s.length() >4)buf.append("**-***" + s.substring(s.length()-4 ) + ",");
else buff.append(s);

  }

this I corrected and tersted:

     ArrayList<String> list =new ArrayList<String>();
    
           list.add("12345678");

           list.add("56781234");

           StringBuffer buf = new StringBuffer("| Numbers: " );
       for (Iterator it = list.iterator(); it.hasNext();)
       {




       String s = (String)it.next();


       if(s.length() >4)buf.append("**-***" + s.substring(s.length()-4 ) + ",");
       else buf.append(s);

         }

        System.out.println(buf);

Are you sure your list has String's?

Can you post how this list is declared/created ?
