    Exclamation Calling a method from another class help

    Java Code:
    public class Transaction
        // instance variables - replace the example below with your own
        private Integer amount;
        private Integer balance;
         * Constructor for objects of class Transaction
        public Transaction(Integer AccountNumber, Integer SortCode)
        // initialise instance variables
           [B] if((AccountNumber != Account.getAccountNumber())&&(SortCode != Account.getSortCode())){[/B]
            System.out.print("Incorrect account number or sort code");
        balance = null;
        amount = null;
    I'm trying to do a check so that if the account number number and sort code (which they entered in the Account class) doesn't match what they have entered in the transaction class, it will display an error message however, i get an error on the line which is in bold stating (line 13) "non-static method getAccountNumber() cannot be referenced from a static context"

    What does that mean? :s
