I am storing names which is in array in a Vector() object.
but after that i want to convert that Vector() back to String
i tried using toString(),
but it gives error as wrong arguments.
Is there a way

Vectors store their data as Objects only, so you have to cast back to the object type that you want.
To retrieve you String object, use something like:

This would retrieve the String object that is the first element in the Vector. Vectors, like arrays, are zero-based.
Hope this helps,
