[Q] how to access the android file system?

My objective is to create a text file in an android file system.

Using java language, I am creating an app. It has a screen with a table of 3columns. Each time a user enters the table row and click on Submit button, the row entry should be created as a separate comma-separated file on an android device. So each time when the table gets updated with new entry and clicks a submit button, a new file is getting created on the device file system. So I am looking for the file connectivity to the internal device memory where I could open the files and access it.

I have done the same in Nokia mobiles using J2ME. But for Android, I am not able to find the device file path. Please help me with the details!

Thanks in advance!
