I am thinking that record number will be required to be retrieved but I don't see any method that returns record number. getValues in DataInfo does not include record number in the string array that it returns. Also I think TableModel must know datatypes of each column to be able to properly format the values on the screen. Any thoughts ??

Formatting based on datatypes is not a requirement. Just display it as it is.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I noticed a method getRecordNumber, just after I posted my original message. Regarding the formatting, I was thinking to format the data on the screen e.g. showing dollar sign for amount, showing numbers right justified etc.
