Hi,
I put
0750-105633-462

to 2nd parameter below
	public static int ValAcctNo (String ItemCode,
			String ItemAcctNo)
	{
		if (!ItemCode.equals("049"))
		{
			JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,
				    "Item Code should be '049'.",
				    "Inane warning",
				    JOptionPane.WARNING_MESSAGE);
			return 2;
		}
		String Acct,str1,str2,str3;
		Acct=ItemAcctNo.trim();
		str1=Acct.substring(0, 4);
		str2=Acct.substring(5, 6);
		str3=Acct.substring(12, 3);
		...

Open in new window


but I get this
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -10
	at java.lang.String.substring(Unknown Source)
	at com.hkicl.ecp.hkanvm.b049.ItemAcctNoValidator_049.ValAcctNo(ItemAcctNoValidator_049.java:66)
	at com.hkicl.ecp.hkanvm.b049.ItemAcctNoValidator_049.main(ItemAcctNoValidator_049.java:45)

it means that the string Acct is not long enough.
you need to check the string length before, it must be 15 or longer

But the input string is with length 15.

BTW, is there any way to go to one specific place within the same event?

Try something like

	String ACC_NO_PAT = "\\d{4}-\\d{6}-\\d{3}";
	if (!itemAcctNo.matches(ACC_NO_PAT)) {
	    throw new RuntimeException(String.format("Current item account number (%s) does not match pattern %s",
		    itemAcctNo, ACC_NO_PAT));
	}
	String[] atoms = itemAcctNo.split("-");
	System.out.println(Arrays.toString(atoms));

btw, Java variable names start lower case
