are you talking about a jtable? or a database table?

what is in the textfile? is it delimited records? or will it need to be parsed?

just a <table> in a webpage, it's just text no parsing is necessary.

<table>
  <tr>
    <td>

<%
    java.io.BufferedReader br = null ;
    try
    {
        br = new java.io.BufferedReader( new java.io.FileReader( "/files/text.txt" ) ) ;
        String line ;
        while( ( line = br.readLine() ) != null )
            out.println( line ) ;
    }
    catch( java.io.IOException ex )
    {
        out.println( ex.toString() ) ;
    }
    finally
    {
        try { if( br != null ) br.close() ; } catch( java.io.IOException ex ) {}

Assuming your text file is on the server in the "/files" directory (off the root)

it works but can i use relative addressing instead of fixed for the location of the text file.

You need to work out what the current working directory is...

try

<%
  out.println( "CWD: " + new java.io.FIle( "." ).getAbsolutePath() ) ;
%>

That should show you the working directory, then relative directories should be able to be used relative to that...

I hope ;)
