Compiler thinks my integer is an String?

I get this error:
"Lab1.java": incompatible types;found : java.lang.String,required: int at line 96, column 54
Line 96 contains this code:
ChosenPersons[(c / 2)] = Persons.substring(c/*This is column 54*/, (c + 1));
c is declared as an int and is treated as an int everywhere else it is used. Replacing c with an "real" integer, such as 1 doesn't work either, and generates the same error, so I wonder where I am using substring wrong?
/Edit:
I am using Borland JBuilder 9

Hi Carl,
Welcome to JavaRanch!
I can't tell what's wrong based just on this one line of code; maybe we could see all of Lab1.java ?
