Clearing data from a jTable

Is there an easy way to clear all data from a jTable. I've tried the table.removeAll(), which seemed sensible, but doesn't work.

Also how do you extract a value from a cell into a variable??

You can use these methods of DefaultTableModel

1. setDataVector(Vector newData, Vector columnNames)
-- If you want the clear the exisitng contents of the table, pass a empty data vector

2. getValueAt (int row, int column)
-- This method returns the value present in a cell

You can also write your own model by extending AbstractTableModel
