I can't quite make out what you're trying to do. You're retrieving data from a DB, and want to write that data to a file in a specific font size? What kind of format is that file in? Plain text files don't have a font size. And what does Swing have to do with it? Are you displaying the data as well?

Please elaborate on what you're trying to do.
