<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="password" VALUE="<%=password%>"/>
<div>
<fieldset class="column box4fade">
<h4>Home Seller's Report</h4>
<p class="marginTopBump4">Please select a listing to generate a homeseller's report for and click "Proceed."
</p>
<div class="marginTopBump4 width13">
<select name="business_state" class="fullBox3">
<%
    for (int i=0;i<homeList.size();i++) {
    %>
                           	
<option value="<%=(String)homeList.elementAt(i).subString((String)homeList.elementAt(i).indexOf("("),(String)homeList.elementAt(i).indexOf(")")+1)%>"><%=(String)homeList.elementAt(i)%></option>


<%   
}
%>
                           	
</select>

can somebody tell me where Im going wrong?

thanx

thanx for the reply...I threw the vector into a string array instead

should have used .toString() instead of (String). The problem you got was because of dereferencing the object returned.
