So the program is supposed to display the box like this (for LIST ALL TRANSACTIONS)
List all transactions: ID Type Amount
0 check 50.00
1 svr.chg 5.15
2 deposit 40.00
3 svr.chg 0.10

the box displays other transactions; it saves the old and new ones and display them one by one.
however, service charge doesn't show. instead, it keeps displaying the new ones and does not display the old ones.
do i have to make another method to do this? so this is how my program displays the box:

List all transactions:

ID Type Amount
0 check 50.00
0 svr.chg 5.25
1 deposit 40.00
1 svr.chg 5.20
(check amount 50 -> deposit amount -> 40)

also, i can't figure out how to display the number in order, instead of displaying in 0-0 1-1 2-2 and so on.
i know i have to add something more and edit here and there, but i just can't figure out.

here's my code:

What errors do you get when you execute the program?
I got this:
Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NullPointerException
at CheckingAccountActions$CheckingAccountActionsListener.actionPerformed(CheckingAccountActions.java:125)

the line 108 is this in my program:

JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, transList.get(i));

What variable has a null value on that line? Probably transList. Print out its value to be sure.
Check the code to see why that variable does not have a valid non null value.

I tried by displaying in println but it doesn't show/display anything at all.
and what do you mean by 'non null' value?
