I'm having serious problems with NSStrings, I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. Heres what I do. Load a NSManagedObject out of core data - Works Make a string object out of the key values of the NSManagedObject - Works Add the string object to an NSMutableArray - Works Pull the values out of the NSMutableArray and insert them into table view cells - Does not work, I cannot get proper values so I get an "EXC_BAD_ACCESS" error Code: //LOADING THE VALUES AND PUTTING THEM INTO THE ARRAY //NAME NSString *fullName = [[object valueForKey:@"firstName"] stringByAppendingString:@" "]; fullName = [fullName stringByAppendingString:[object valueForKey:@"lastName"]]; NSString *string = fullName; [data addObject:string]; [labelList addObject:@"Name:"]; [fullName release]; //EMAIL NSString *email = [[object valueForKey:@"username"] stringByAppendingString:@ "@suffieldacademy.org"]; [data addObject:email]; [labelList addObject:@"Email:"]; [email release]; Code: //INSERTING THE VALUES OF THE ARRAY INTO THE CELLS, THIS OCCURS DURING -cellAtRowForIndexPath //NOTE: the textField variable is a UILabel that has been added to the cell, it works perfectly fine if I pass it a value manually (ex: textField.text = @"some string") so it is not the design of the textfield that is causing the problem int row = [indexPath row]; NSString *value = [data objectAtIndex:row]; //CAUSES THE ERROR textField.text = value; textField.tag = row; The proper values are inserted into the NSMutableArray but they are NSCFString objects, this happens in other instances of my code but I get no problems. The problem happens when I try to pull the values out of the NSMutableArray to use in my table view. Can someone please explain what I'm doing wrong?
