    Help! why this not work

    Hi,
    Below program gave me many errors and I can't figure out why.
    Code:
    typedef struct 
    {
       int ID;
       float exam1;
       float exam2;
    } studentRecord;
    
    
    studentRecord stuRecordArr[40];
    
    int main()
    {
       int i;
       for (i =0; i<40; i++)
       {
          stuRecordArr[i].studentRecord.ID = 0; /* gave errors, why?*/
       }  
    
      return 0;
    }
    How to access to a record field for above program?
    Thank you for your help.

    your sintax is wrong.

    stuRecordArr[i].ID = 0;

    stuRecordArr[i].studentRecord.ID = 0;

    Should be

    stuRecordArr[i].ID = 0;

    studentRecord is the datatype, but stuRecordArr[?] is the actual object of that type.
    Ie you never type:

    int Myvar;
    MyVar.int = 5;

    when assigning a value to an int .
