Hello, Welcome to JavaRanch. The short answer is: String string = "123"; int number = Integer.parseInt(string); or String string = "123.45"; double number = Double.parseDouble(string); If you'd like more information on the subject, I recommend doing a search on the beginner's forum. The link to the search page is at the top-right of this page. Good Luck.
Did you use String string = "123"; int number = Integer.parseInt(string); String string = "123.45"; double number = Double.parseDouble(string); in the same scope? Just use different variables and it should work fine. -anthony
