    Yes you are correct
    Letme show u an example

    Enter the elements of matrix
    1 2 3 4
    99


    Here is your matrix:
    1 2
    3 4

    BUT:
    Enter the elements of matrix
    1 2 3
    99

    Here is your matrix:
    1 2

    instead of displaying just 1 2 i want the program to say "invald # of entries" and then exit

    could you please tell me how to do that?

    So you want to ensure that the user enters complete rows.

    Two possibilities:

    1. Check that the value of d is 0 (i.e., they entered 99 as the first value in a column).

    2. Write it so entering the magic number (99) only works if it's the first value in a column.
    Code:
    for (c = 0; c < 10; c++)
    {
        scanf("%d", &val);
        if (val == 99)
            break;
        matrix[c][0] = val;
        for (d = 1; d < m; d++)  // note that d starts at 1 here
        {
            scanf("%d", &matrix[c][d]);
        }
    }

    when I enter 1,2,3,4,99 this is what I get back from the code
    Here is your matrix:
    1 2
    3 4
    BUT

    when i enter 1,2,3,99 this is what i get back
    Here is your matrix:
    1 2

    Code:
        for( c = 0 ; c < 10 ; c++ )
          {
            for( d = 0; d < m ; d++ )
            {
                scanf("%d",&matrix[c][d]);
                
                if (matrix[c][d] == 99) // 99 is  variable to use as a break
                   break;
                  
            }
            
            if (matrix[c][d] == 99)
              break;
          }
         
      }
      if(d<m)
         printf("\nArray data is missing.\n");
    Detects short rows, (last row only), but won't detect if a full row is missing.

    Im so grateful to the two of you but both codes didnt work for me
    The problem i have with oogaboogas code is if they enter 99 first how will the program know when the user has finished entering all entries
    and the problem with adaks code is for some reason it prints the statement everytime

    Is there anyway you guys can write this statement in code and tellme where to place it it might work
    Code:
    if( #ofentries != c*m)
    printf("Invalid number of entries);
    exit(0);
    else{
    print

    How about:
    Code:
    if (d > 0) {
        printf("...");
        exit(1);
    }
    You don't need the else part, since the if part exits.

    Neko Tan doesn't know what it's talking about. fflush is not needed.

    Indent your code properly. Look at post #7. Is that really how you mean your code to look?
    maybe this happen only on my compiler... it seem like stuck on 2nd scanf (if without fflush)...

    i had one last question sorry to annoy you so much today
    i want the program to exit if the user inputs a value in the matrix less than 0. i plan on writing it like
    Code:
    if(matrix[c][d] < 0){
    printf("not valid number");
    exit(1);}
    but ive been trying this for a while but i cant seem to understand where exactly in the code i should put it
    ive tired numerous times but nothing has worked out

               break;
     
              if (matrix[c][d] < 0){
              printf ("not valid number");
              getch();

              }
            if (matrix[c][d] == 99)
              break;
          }
      }
    check everytime after scanf. sry, im new here... im have no idea how to edit with color on ur code...

    Thanks!!!! Its working!

    Could you tell me why my multiplication of this matrix and its transpose is coming wrong. Its usually wrong if its not a square matrix.

    Code:
     for( i = 0 ; i < c ; i++ )
        {
          for( d = 0 ; d < m ; d++ )
            {
              transpose[d][i] = matrix[i][d];
            }
        }
    
    
      printf("Transpose of entered matrix :-\n");
    
    
      for( i = 0 ; i < m ; i++ )
        {
          for( d = 0 ; d < c ; d++ )
            {
              printf("%3d\t",transpose[i][d]);
            }
    
    
          printf("\n");
        }
      // printf("The product of matrix and transpose is %d:");
      for( i = 0 ; i < c ; i++ )
        {
          for( d = 0 ; d < m ; d++ )
            {
              product[i][d]=0;
              for(k=0;k<c;k++) {
                product[i][d] = product[i][d] + matrix[i][k] * transpose[k][d];
              }
            }
        }
      printf("\nThe Product Of The Two Matrices Is:\n\n");
      for(i=0; i<c; i++) {
        for(d=0; d<k; d++) {
          printf(" %3d ",product[i][d]);
        }
        printf("\n");
      }
    
    
    
    
    
    
      return 0;

    The transpose is right its just the multiplication of the matrix and transpose sometimes comes wrong
