Excuse me pple, i would like to make a correction here. The formatted value is stored in a table and not a file as i had stated earlier. i get the values in a file, format them and display then in a certain table. It displays on the table the way i want it to.
i am trying to store a value to a file. this value is very small and i format it using DecimalFormat class. For instance my value is
and i format it using this constructor
DecimalFormat myVal = new DecimalFormat("0.0000E0");
The formatted value is stored in a file
When i try to retrieve this value i get the NumberFormatException
