    Default Data conversion help

    Ok so my company just threw me into this. I'm new to Java and used to php,Javascript. Here's an odd question is it possible to take information that is submitted via a text area with comma seperated values and somehow put them into the values of a text field and submit it? The user would not see the conversion of text area to text field.

    I ask this because they already have some code that has textfield entry that has 2 seperate text field values and 10 sets of those fields. They want it so someone can just copy paste into a text area with comma sepperated values.

    So I was hoping I could just submit it to the same file because the end results will be the same but obviously the file currently wants text field entries.

    What do you mean by "submitted" and "submit it"?

    Is this a java application's GUI you are talking about or what?

    No this is actually on the web page. I mean there is a form with inputs on the page. I would like to narrow that down to 1 text are instead of 20 seerate input fiels then.

    Currently they have part number text fields and quantity text fields (10 oof each). They'd like me to make a text area where a customer can copy paste in as many product numbers and quantities as they like seperated by commas. Since it's the same functionality I was hoping I could submit these results to the same page. but currently the pages wants those seperate text area values.
    So:
    Number:q120 qty:20

    turns into
    q120,20
