    The best sorting algorithm for the link lists would be the selection sort method. Try using that one. And if you are unable to get results reply and I will try to deliver the code.

    thanks for your reply Kharea -the prob though is that as a beginner the bubble sort is the only one i knew(or thought i did)
    how to manipulate so if you could send me the code for the select sort i'd be thankful ....btw how's the next side of the world?.i'm in Jamaica

    A bubble sort will work fine.

    Have you tried to figure out where the runtime error occurs? What line?

    Have you run the code with the debugger?

    Add print statements to pinpoint the problem line.
