I've currently setup the code



and it reads in the text file fine, but I need to be able to delimit my input into two strings based on the ; that appears in the line. Here is my current print out

21806000300231;5847
21806000327226;
21806000273164;114
21806000274170;8245
21806000334313;
21806000115043;4220
21806000403274;1313

and i need to read each number into a string array separately so that i have something like

string[1] = 21806000300231
string2[1] = 5847


i've searched for some example code, but haven't ran across any yet.

thanks

You can use split() function

Example

But always check here
that you are not using a metacharacter in your split() argument. I think ; is a normal character.

In this case the CSV file can be read using split(), but for more complex files, where the values can contain ; as well, I'd suggest opencsv.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
