Hi! Can someone please try to help me. I've been stacked here. I don't know what's the next step.

What I want to happen is to get the record from TimeRecord.txt, store each lline in an array, modify a specific line, then what? I'm hopeless. Thank you for the response !

I already told you in this thread to use a temporary file. RandomAccessFile is not a good candidate for reading text files, as one char may require more than 1 byte to store it.
