I think you better check also

request.getAttribute("someString")...

Please provide all the code for the correct answer

If it is the actual code then the semicolon is missing on first line.

OK...here is more of the code



and from there num is a value read into a database. If i remove this block of code (and take it out of the sql insert) I don't have a problem.

Why don't you print the value of TheNum to see what you're getting.

You should never trust values coming from the web.
If your code requires that a value be convertable to an integer, you should either wrap that part of your code in a try/catch block or test with a regular expression to insure that it can.

Besides being null or empty, it could be "asdf" or "1.1" or "1 1/3".
None of these values would convert to an integer.
