I think what I need is a sample file with data in it, maybe with at least 2 records.

The file is in a binary format, with a fixed length for the records. RandomAccessFile would be an appropriate class to read the contents of such a file.

You should have gotten a database file with your assignment. The file formats differ on details for each assignment, so files from other peoples' assignments will probably not be of much value to you.

I started my assignment by writing a parser that could read the database file; it was a good exercise to get me on my way.

Frans.
