I have this test working where it outputs the word "test" based on a calculated result:



Now I would like to stop using the String test (String targetItems = "test"; ) and put real data in using an ArrayList but my attempt outputs a huge array of info for each record:


Please advise how I can get this to work with targetItems ArrayList. Do I need another for loop inside my for loop?

Did you compile the code that you posted? Because what you posted shouldn't compile.

Sorry, perhaps it's me, but your post confuses me. You may need to tell more details here.

Also, this is unusual:


as it appears that you're adding a targetItems array list object plus a String(???) plus an int (???). Why?

Does it even compile?

Here is my original that did work with a String test value of "test":

Now I need to use real data which will be coming from the ArrayList targetItems I showed earlier.

This code shouldn't compile either. How did you get this to work?
