BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(new FileInputStream("input.txt")));
             String line = "";
             emptyfile(line, br);
             if ((line = br.readLine()) == null)
             {
                System.out.println("NO RECORD EXISTS IN OUR SYSTEM");
                EXIT();
             }
             while((line = br.readLine()) != null)
             {
                 StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(line, "," );
                 String getCusId = st.nextToken();
                 System.out.println(getCusId);
                 if (getCusId.equals(customerId))
                 {
                     test = true;
                 }

Why test first? Just read the file

boolean noRecords = true;
while((line = br.readLine()) != null)
{
     noRecords = false;
     // read the file and get info
}

i have tried
like this:
             boolean norecord = true;
             while((line = br.readLine()) != null)
             {
                 norecord = false;
                 StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(line, "," );
                 String getCusId = st.nextToken();
                 if (getCusId.equals(customerId))
                     test = true;

              }
             if (norecord)
                //error,
          }
when the text file is null, it come up with error like this,
Exception in thread "main" java.util.NoSuchElementException
it seems it still read the element in the text file , and come upp with error
when using Tokenizer, how come this is not working,
so can i use
 catch(NoSuchElementException e)
          {
             System.out.println("NO RECORD EXIST");
             System.exit()          }

>>when the text file is null, it come up with error like this,

It can't be 'null' (i assume you mean empty) or it would not be entering the loop. Trim the line to make sure it's not just spaces

You can test for empty by a file size of zero.

File f = new File("input.txt");
boolean empty = (f.length() == 0);
System.out.println("File is empty? - " + empty);
