Hi,

I try to find text from text file that refer to another text file.
Why when I use hard code it working but if I read text file and compare with another text file it not working.
My program is as follows:

String AllLine = null;
String ThirdPartyList;
String FindTP;
ThirdPartyList = ("D:/ThirdPartyTest.txt");
FileReader FRTP = new FileReader(ThirdPartyList);
BufferedReader BRTP = new BufferedReader(FRTP);
inFileName = ("D:/SourceMain.txt");
FileReader fileReader1 = new FileReader(inFileName);
BufferedReader br1 = new BufferedReader(fileReader1);
int check1 = 0;

while ((Keyword = BRTP.readLine()) != null)
{
  Keyword = Keyword.substring(Keyword.indexOf("123"),  
                                              Keyword.length());
  Keyword = Keyword.toLowerCase();
  while ((AllLine = br1.readLine()) != null)
  {
    AllLine = AllLine.toLowerCase();
    int index = AllLine.indexOf(Keyword);//here is a problem
    if (index != -1)//text found
    {
       check1 = 1;
       break; //exit while loop when found
                              }
  }//end while
  if (check1 == 1) break;
}//end while
BRTP.close();
br1.close();


if (check1 == 0) {
  JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(StartFrame, "Text Not Found");
}else{
  JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(StartFrame, "Text Found");
}//end else if

Thank you
sara

Don't forget to initialize Keyword next to AllLine

String AllLine = null;
String Keyword = null;

It's not working because message "Text Not Found" appear even the text exist in both text file.
I have put value null for both Keyword and AllLine.

Example data:
1. Data in text file ThirdPartyTest.txt
abc123aaaaa
defghi123bbbbbbbbbbb
jk123cccc
mnopqr123dddddddddd

2. Data in text file In SourceMain.txt
abc def ghi
jklmno123cccc(this data suppose be found cos same with line 3)
abd xyz

For example if I set hard code Keyword="123cccc" text found but it not work when I read from text file ThirdPartyTest.txt then search in SourceMain.txt

Thank you

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

you only read the second file once for the first  keyword.
you need reopen the second file for every keyword.

while ((Keyword = BRTP.readLine()) != null)
{
  Keyword = Keyword.substring(Keyword.indexOf("123"),  
                                              Keyword.length());
  Keyword = Keyword.toLowerCase();
  FileReader fileReader1 = new FileReader(inFileName);
  BufferedReader br1 = new BufferedReader(fileReader1);
  while ((AllLine = br1.readLine()) != null)
