Hi guys
I am using a string array which has numbers in it. I want to sort the array by using insertion sort and storing the sorted numbers in a vector. When I used the following code, the program doesn't sort the numbers in the correct order. Where did I go wrong? Please help me.

Thanks
Vidu

inside if clauses, try to convert those two strings into "int"
by using Integer.parseInt(String), then compare the numeric
value should give you the correct result

if (itemToInsert.compareTo( (String) v.elementAt(i)) < 0)
break;
}
