Could someone post a code example to prolerly setup a text area? I have to wirte an app to display an amortization table from a previously created application. I think the JTextArea is the way to go but am unsure if I am on the right track or not.

OK I found it and just about have it working. I am having two issues now and I think they are dumb problems.

1. when I compile and run I don't get the column names to print.
2. what is the correct format to pull data? I am trying to get the data fields to update into the table once I push the run button. I think I have most of it figured out but ths is just knawing at me that I can't get this working.
