    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code correctly and other useful info for new members.

    Please refer to the link above and post your code correctly.

    As you were told in your previous post, Java is case sensitive. 'Println()' is not the same as 'println()', and the latter is correct. Notice also that it's println() with a small 'L', not a capital (or small) 'I'.

    Not an error, but by convention in Java class names are capitalized.
