    How are you getting the path to the file you want to read? Are you using the JFileChooser or the File classes?

    geetha, I've moved your thread to a more applicable forum. Posting questions in the wrong forum (such as the member introduction forum, where this was originally) will hurt your chances of getting help.

    I suggest you post an SSCCE that demonstrates what you're doing.
