Hi i am looking for following output.so far I am only getting result for total no of grades.I am getting 0 for A B C D and F.
total no of grades
Number of A's
Number of B
Numbers of C
Number of D
number of F
import java.util.Scanner;
public class ExamScores
{
public static void main (String[]args)
{
String a;
int count= 0;

int grade=0;
int A=0;
int B=0;
int C=0;
int D=0;
int F=0;




Scanner scan = new Scanner (System.in);
System.out.println("Enter your exam grades");


a=scan.nextLine();
int len=a.length ();

for (int i=0; i< len; i++)
{
if (a.charAt (i) ==' '){
count--;
}else {
count++;

}
}




if (grade > 90 && grade <= 100) {
grade= 'A';
A=A+1;
count++;
} else if (grade > 80 && grade <= 89) {
grade= 'B';
B=B+1;
count++;

} else if (grade > 70 && grade <= 79) {
grade= 'C';
C=C+1;
count++;

} else if (grade > 60 && grade <= 69) {
grade= 'D';
D=D+1;
count++;
} else if (grade> 0 && grade <= 59) {
grade= 'F';
F=F+1;
count++;
}
System.out.println("total no of grades=" + count);
System.out.println("Number of A=" + A);
System.out.println("Number of B=" + B);
System.out.println("Number of C=" + C);
System.out.println("Number of D=" + D);
System.out.println("Number of F=" + F);
}
}

There are several problems with your code.
1. grade is declared as an int and is initialized to 0, but in your if statements, you are attempting to store a character value in it.
2. grade should be given a value from the input string, but your code doesn't do this. None of the conditions in your if statements evaluate to true, so none of the code in the if statements actually executes.
3. Your for loop counts the nonspace characters in the input string. This is not the same as the number of grades in the string.
4. You never get the grades out of the input string. This should happen inside a loop, which should also contain your logic for determining whether a given grade is an A, B, and so on. The Scanner class has some methods that will be helpful; namely, hasNextInt and nextInt. See http://download.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/.

i make some changings
Code:
import java.util.Scanner;
public class ExamScores
{
	public static void main (String[]args)
	{
		String letterGrade;
		double numberOfGrades;
		double grade;
		//create scanner object
		Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
		//ask user for input
		System.out.println("How many grades do you have to enter?: ");
		//reads in the number of grades user wants to enter as double from keyboard
		numberOfGrades = scan.nextDouble();
		//now since program knows how many grades are being entered it can
		//control the input
		for(int j = 1; j <= numberOfGrades; j++)
		   //based off of number of grades the user inputs it will ask
		   //for that many exam grades
		   System.out.println("Enter your exam grades: ");
		   //reads in exam scores as a double from keyboard
		   grade = scan.nextDouble();
		   //compares the datafield grade with scores 90-100
		   if (grade >= 90 && grade <= 100) {
		      //if 90 >= grade <=100 the letter grade is A
		      letterGrade = "A";
		      //if letter grade is A then A which is an int that is initialized at 0
		      //has 1 added to it. THIS IS WHERE YOUR VALUE CHANGES.
		      if(letterGrade == "A"){
		         A = A + 1;
		      }

		    if (grade >= 80 && grade <= 89) {
		      //if 90 >= grade <=100 the letter grade is A
		      letterGrade = "B";}
		    //if letter grade is A then A which is an int that is initialized at 0
		    //has 1 added to it. THIS IS WHERE YOUR VALUE CHANGES.
		    if(letterGrade == "B"){
		       B = B + 1;
	                 }
		    if (grade >= 70 && grade <= 79) {
		      //if 90 >= grade <=100 the letter grade is A
		      letterGrade = "C";}
		    //if letter grade is A then A which is an int that is initialized at 0
		    //has 1 added to it. THIS IS WHERE YOUR VALUE CHANGES.
		    if(letterGrade == "C"){
		       C = C + 1;
		    }
		    if (grade >= 60 && grade <= 69) {
		        //if 90 >= grade <=100 the letter grade is A
		        letterGrade = "D";}
		    //if letter grade is A then A which is an int that is initialized at 0
		    //has 1 added to it. THIS IS WHERE YOUR VALUE CHANGES.
		    if(letterGrade == "D"){
		        D = D + 1;
		    }
		    if (grade >= 0 && grade <= 59) {
		        //if 90 >= grade <=100 the letter grade is A
		        letterGrade = "F";}
		    //if letter grade is A then A which is an int that is initialized at 0
		    //has 1 added to it. THIS IS WHERE YOUR VALUE CHANGES.
		    if(letterGrade == "F"){
		        F = F + 1;
		    }

		   System.out.println("Total number of each letter grade: " + numberOfGrades);
		   System.out.println("Number of A" + A);
		   System.out.println("Number of B" +B);
		   System.out.println("Number of C" + C);
		   System.out.println("Number of D" + D);
		   System.out.println ("Number of F" + F);

	}

   }

Some comments.
1. Your code won't compile - there are variables used that aren't declared.
2. The for loop won't work as you expect, as you are missing braces ({ }) around the body of the loop. The structure of the for loop should be like this.
Code:
for(int j = 1; j <= numberOfGrades; j++)
{
   // Body of loop
}
3. When you ask the user how many grades will be entered, you shouldn't be using a double to store that value. The user will not be entering 7.36 grades. Use an int.
4. If the grades themselves are whole numbers, use ints to store them.
5. Here is one of your grade-determining branches.
Code:
if (grade >= 90 && grade <= 100) {
   //if 90 >= grade <=100 the letter grade is A
   letterGrade = "A";
   //if letter grade is A then A which is an int that is initialized at 0
   //has 1 added to it. THIS IS WHERE YOUR VALUE CHANGES.
   if(letterGrade == "A"){
        A = A + 1;
   }
All of the branches have exactly the same comments. The comments should be updated for each of the five sections.
There is no need for a letterGrade variable. You can trim your code down considerably to this:
Code:
if (grade >= 90 && grade <= 100)
{
   A_count = A_count + 1;
}

Why are you taking A=A+1, B=B+1, C=C+1, D=D+1, E=E+1, F=F+1 in If, else-if blocks?
Code:
if (grade > 90 && grade <= 100) {
grade= 'A';
[COLOR="Red"]A=A+1;[/COLOR]
count++;
} else if (grade > 80 && grade <= 89) {
grade= 'B';
[COLOR="Red"]B=B+1;[/COLOR]
count++;

} else if (grade > 70 && grade <= 79) {
grade= 'C';
[COLOR="Red"]C=C+1;[/COLOR]
count++;

} else if (grade > 60 && grade <= 69) {
grade= 'D';
[COLOR="Red"]D=D+1;[/COLOR]
count++;
} else if (grade> 0 && grade <= 59) {
grade= 'F';
[COLOR="Red"]F=F+1;[/COLOR]
count++;
}

Presumably, to count the number of people with each grade.

If your question really meant "Why write A=A+1 rather than A++", they both do the same thing.

pairofstrings,
I have deleted two of your posts, as you are giving too much help. Do not try to post a complete or near-complete solution again.
