Hi Vaibhav Singhl,

First things first : Welcome to CodeRanch!

When you post codes in your posts, please UseCodeTags. You can still go and edit your post.

Further, I don't really understand why you require all those variables - c,d,e,f,c1,d1 and so on. An array of variables(with a sensible name) would be better.

That said, let's come to your issue. Integer is not being written to file.

I would advice two things:
1) Try to debug the code.
2) Please go through documentation of write(int) method of RandomAccessFile class. There you'll find what exactly it does. Also, documentation would also give you hints about how to write integer to file directly.

I hope this helps.

I see you have found the code button. Please don’t post such long lines; they are difficult to read on most screens. And avoid tabs for indentation; use spaces instead.
I agree. Here's the link:
