2D Array Help

How do I select a column in the array? I can select the row just fine but for my ComboBox I need to select the column as the values for the combobox.

Thanks in advance.

I am very sorry, but I moved your original post to another forum because it appeared to be more appropriate there.

The original seems to have vanished mysteriously, and I am sure I didn't send it to the wrong place. I am afraid I still think this is more of a specific Swing topic than a general beginner's topic, so I shall transfer this thread to Swing as well.

Like you already know, getting rows is quite easy. There is no way to get a column directly though - partNumberString is not a matrix but an array, with each element being an array of Strings.

To get the second column (numbered 1), you need to create a new array:

You will need to make 100% sure that all arrays in partNumberString have the same length, or this code may fail. Fortunately, in your code that's ok.
