I'm not sure you can, especially because iterators on Vectors are not 
gaurenteed to operate in any special order. If possible you should use an 
ArrayList or LinkedList. In this case you will be able to find the index 
or even ask for items by their index.

You can make a List or LinkedList out of a Vector as it is a Collection.

I'm trying to iterate through a database using a Vector and
previous/next JButtons.  How do I find the Vector index of the current
record so I can navigate forward and back in the Vector?  Thanks in
