Dear All.

I am using JTable having values in column 3.
I am getting values from it using jTable.getValueAt(1,1).toString;
Then i use Double/Float/Integer/Long etc to convert data.
My data having values 999,999,999,999.99
Problem is that thru any of above option i get 9.9999999999999
in sum of different values. My jTable contents number of values positive and negative.

Can anyone help me where i m wrong or is there any other way to solve my this problem.

I am using the same below method except Double.parseDouble(), Integer.parseInt() etc etc

Love is GOD and GOD is Love.

The problem is that the parse methods of Double, etc. all assume the String has no formatting elements excpet . Since yours does, you should use DecimalFormat to parse String values with , seperators.

I Hope This Helps
