OK.
What do you have so far and where are you stuck?

Also, is this a console (ie text based terminal) application, or is it supposed to have a GUI (eg Swing)?

Wouldn't a spreadsheet be a better tool to do this?

Or you could use an existing component like http://jeppers.sourceforge.net/

Does that mean an existing opens ource component won't do? Any particular reason why not?

I don't know any thing about that jeepers creepers software which you have recommended me, and i made that price sheet manually on Microsoft word for my own purposes but too much pages get Microsoft word very heavy and then Microsoft word starts hanging a little bit so that's why i want to design and developed my own price sheet with automatic total amount generator and when the page is filled the new page will appear automatically, but i'm unable to get any idea that how to make that kind of sheet in JAVA ?? Please help me

Well, the jeepers web site has documentation, so if you want to learn about it, that's where to start.

If you want to program it yourself, start by looking into the JTable component of the Swing API.

And if you want your output to be a Microsoft Word or Excel file, look into Apache POI.

Out of curiosity, how much Java have you done?
