Welcome to the Javaranch, Sam.
First, we are a friendly bunch here, so we ask that you use your real name (first and last, seperated by a space). As our Naming Policy states, accounts with obviously fictitious names will be closed.
You can change your displayed name here.
Second, we consider every topic "urgent" but we're all volunteers here, so we ask that you Ease Up.
Last, a good place to start when learing how to work with files is the Java Tutorial chapter on IO. Have you looked at it?
