Cannot find symbol means that it can't find a class,method, or variable that you have used. It could be that you misspelled something (watch capitalization, Java is case sensitive) or you are calling a method that does not exist on that class.

These are very basic error messages. Look at each one and read it, then look at the line number that it tells you the error occurred on and fix it.

I did go over the entire program and no luck solving the error. and ever thing is spelled right. so what could be the errors for.. please let me know

thanks

he explained it.
You either use a variable or method that you forgot to declare or you made an error in the declaration.
The latter can typically be a typo or a scope error (declaring it somewhere where it's not visible from the place you're calling it).

Look in your Customer class. Either it doesn't contain any addAccount/withdraw/deposit methods or you may have declared those methods all private.
