    Default Only outputting to the Output file once

    Hi,

    I'm currently having a problem with my code... I am trying to output to a file numerous transactions that have took place.

    if (userInput == 1)
    					{
    						System.out.println("The current account balance is: " + accountBalance + "0" + "\n");
    						System.out.println("Please enter the amount you would like to transfer");
    						transferOut = console.nextDouble();
    						while (transferOut > accountBalance)
    						{
    							System.out.println("The maximum amount you can transfer is: " + accountBalance + "0");
    							System.out.println("Please enter another amount.");
    							transferOut = console.nextDouble();
    						}
    						accountBalance = accountBalance - transferOut;
    						transactionNumber = transactionNumber + 1;
    						System.out.println("The remaining balance in your account is: " + accountBalance + "0");
    						Date date = new Date();
    						outFile.println("Transaction Number " + transactionNumber + " took place on" + " " + date + " " + "with " + transferOut + "0" + " being transferred out of the account.");
    						PrintWriter updateBalance = new PrintWriter("shop-account.txt");
    						updateBalance.println(accountBalance);
    						updateBalance.close();	
    						outFile.close();
    					}

    The 'outFile' is the output file described above. Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards

    Where have to stored all those transactions?
    Do you want to write individual transactions to the output file?
    Thanks and regards,

    If you want to write many transaction in single file by multiple call then open that file in append mode.
    PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter("outfilename", true)));
