You must create an instance of the object before you can invoke methods on it.

Use an iterator, which is inherited by the Vector class from AbstractList.

Hi,

I think the class level variable custName in SearchBooking is conflicting with the method variable custName. Try changing the name either one of the variable.

Hope this helps.
