I have to make a file and store some data(string) in it. I want that no one will be able to understand what is written in the file by openning it as txt . like he will get text as ;vnzlghaog\GH;OLFJHQ686596- in the file. So how do I go by doing the data formating. I tried it as is done in C++ by adding numbers to ASCII value of the character, but that gave error in JAVA. Can anyone plz help me with this problem.

Show us your error. Adding numbers to ascci values is possible in Java too.

A google search for Java encryption cipher may give you some inspiration.
