    cannot Scanf float? terminates program

    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include<conio.h>
    #include<stdlib.h>
    #include<process.h>
    #include<ctype.h>
    int i;
    void main()
    {clrscr();
    struct SIZE
    {
    int pr;
    int sz;
    };
    struct STOCK
    {
    int style;
    float price;
    struct SIZE s;
    }x[10];
    
    for(i=0;i<2;i++)
    {
        printf("Enter Style: ");
        scanf("%d", &x[i].style);
        printf("Enter Size: ");
        scanf("%d", &x[i].s.sz);
        printf("Enter Pairs: ");
        scanf("%d", &x[i].s.pr);      
        printf("Enter price: ");
        scanf("%f", &x[i].price);     //Program terminates here.
    }
    
    printf("Stock no.\tStyle no.\tSize\t\tPairs\t\tPrice\n");
    
    for(i=0;i<2;i++)
    {
        printf("%d\t\t%d\t\t%d\t\t%d\t\t%f\n", i+1, x[i].style, x[i].s.sz, x[i].s.pr, x[i].price);
    }
    getch();

    >>for(i=0;i<2;i++)
    >>{printf("Enter Style: ");

    AVOID THIS! Either do

    for(i=0;i<2;i++) {
    printf("Enter Style: ");

    ...or...

    for(i=0;i<2;i++)
    {
    printf("Enter Style: ");

    And don't forget to indent!

    And then let's start again by telling us what, exactly, the problem is.

    Read through my first reply again. Perform the series of steps outlined and then reply again with the necessary information.

    Use code tags! See link.
    I put them there in the first place so you would click them and read the material written there.

    I would recommend you read stickies in a forum you're new to before posting.

    Then the next step would be to mention what the problem is.

    I put a comment on the program.

    Anyway, the problem is the program terminates whenever I'm about to input the Price w/c is a float.

    The code runs fine for me.
    I suggest you demonstrate an example of how to reproduce this. For example, what do you input to make this happen?

    I just put random numbers and I've tried different combination but still at the price part the program terminates.

    btw, I use Turbo C++ IDE. ver. 3.0 Borland Int'l Inc.

    I suggest you dump Turbo C++ and get yourself a modern compiler and IDE.
