    Default Beginner Project

    So i am working on a java project for my first semester programming class and I have code here with an error I am stumped on.

    The user will input the file name containing equipment information from the terminal. The program will read from the file and put the lines into a tokenizer which will separate the tokens in accordance to commas.

    My current code:

    import java.util.*;
    import java.io.*;

    public class Project4
    public static void main(String args[]) throws FileNotFoundException

    String fix;

    Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);

    System.out.println("Welcome to Transport Canada");
    System.out.print("Please enter text file: ");
    String filename = in.nextLine();

    File file = new File(filename);
    Scanner inp = new Scanner(file);

    fix = MTBF(inp);


    public static String MTBF(String fixing)
    StringTokenizer strTokenizer = new StringTokenizer(fixing, ",");
    fixing = strTokenizer.nextToken();

    return fixing;

    The input file looks like this:


    So where are my errors, what am I doing wrong and most importantly...HOW FIX!?
    Thank you for your time
