MenuMap is not an API class - is it your own?

If it's based on Map, then Map has no concept (normally) of 'between' - the collection is unordered

Sorry! those are the variable names i used

###  MenuMap is my own info class where it get values from database and stores (get and set methods). The above one is setting values.

##  and MenuMapColl is a vector. Sorry I said it a collection obj

Vector MenuMapColl          = new Vector();  

MenuMap menuMap= new MenuMap();
menuMap.setDisplayName(dispName);
menuMap.setURLString(urlPage);
menuMap.setPNG(iconImage);
menuMap.setDeficonText(deficonText);
MenuMapColl.add(menuMap);

int size=MenuMapColl.size();
int reminder= size % 3;

You need something like


Vector newColl = new Vector();
for(int index = 0;index < MenuMapColl.size();i++) {
      Object current = MenuMapColl.get(index);
      if (index % 3 == 0 && index > 0) {
            insertFromTextFile(newColl); // You design this method
      }
      else {
            newColl.add(current);
      }  
}
// Now use 'newColl'
