This is really urgent. Hoping sooner response from my friend z

Thanks in advance.

The input data seems to be wrapped. Is that correct?
So there are really only 11 lines of data and two header lines?

If the data is in a file, you can use the Scanner class to read the contents of the file into Strings using one of its next....() methods.

Using the Scanner class would be the best. You can read each section of the file with it and specify the delimiter to use.

Something like this:

Scanner fileReader = new Scanner("FILENAME.txt");
while(fileReader.hasNext()) {
	String item = fileReader.next(" ");
	// Print or store the string, read in the next line
	System.out.println("First thing: " + item);
}
