You will have to create a QueueNode object before you can use it.  Right under your line "Queue test = new Queue();" in main(), you can put "QueueNode node = new QueueNode();"

Then you will have to change "Position" to "node.Position" for each of those data members.

i have a problem with my test program, their seems to be an error in it!

TestQueue.java:39: Can't make a static reference to nonstatic variable Position in class QueueNode.

                                   Position = uuInOut.ReadInt();


some variables are declared in the class below
class QueueNode
{

     public int Position;
     public String DocumentName;
     public String Owner;
     public int Size;
     
     public QueueNode next;
     public QueueNode previous;
     
}


import uuInOut;
class TestQueue extends Queue
{
     static void displayMenu()
     {
          System.out.println("--------------------------------");
          System.out.println("     Printer Queue System       ");
          System.out.println("--------------------------------");
          System.out.println("                                ");
          System.out.println("Option\tAction");
          System.out.println("   ");
          System.out.println("1\tAdd document");
          System.out.println("2\tPrint a Document");
          System.out.println("3\tDisplay Contents of Queue");
          System.out.println("    ");
          System.out.println("4\tPurge the queue");
          System.out.println("5\tRemove a Document");
          System.out.println("6\tDisplay how many documents in the Queue");
          System.out.println("7\tDisplay the Size of Queue (KB)");
          System.out.println("8\tExit");
         
     }
     
     public static void main (String [] arguments)

          Queue test = new Queue();
         
          int choice;

 Either create an instance of the class QueueNode like: QueueNode qn = new QueueNode() and access the "Position" variable through the "qn" variable like: qn.Position  = uuInOut.ReadInt(); or declare your QueueNode class final or the variables in there static.

 Hope it helps.
