I am reading a File using a BufferedReader , the file consists of different Transactions, where each Transaction is seperated using a
Y2 word .

Please let me know how can i use BufferedReader in combination with
StringTokenizer ??

Don't use StringTokenizer, it's quite old. String.split can do almost exactly the same but is better.

There are two separate issues here:
1) read a file line by line. Check out BufferedReader, it has a nice method for that.

2) splitting each line. That's where String.split comes in.

I'm sure that if you get these both working separately you can combine them. Hint: the splitting goes into the reading loop

Instead of StringTokenizer you can use String split() method easily with BufferedReader if you dont have any newline characters in your file.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
