Hi,the following code asks for grid size and then takes the input values from the keyboard and stores contents in "str".Now I want to store contents of "str" in a 2-dimensional character array named char[][] board. How do I do that? Please be patient I am new to coding.

The String class has a method toCharArray() which you can use.
"board" should be defined as
char[][] board = new char[boardSize][];
