    poiner problem in function

    I am getting this error when the linked list pointer passes through the calc_gross function. Not sure why?
    Code:
    error:

    here is my program:
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>

    You have a closing brace } missing.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    thats what I thought.. so I put it where I thought and it didnt work.. so I posted.. and then checked my emails and surfed a bit.. then came back.. once I saw your post, I opened my program and wahhllaaa I saw where I needed it..

    I think I needed to get away from it for a minute.. as usual.. its something simple and looking at it too long you just miss it..

    thanks..
