    For the love of jeebus use code tags!

    (Look at the top of the forum to find out how)

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Sorry new at this..

    I am not sure how the code tags work.. Sorry I am new at this... I read abt them and did what it said unless I am not getting.. Sorry if this is wrong again...


    Code:
     
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <math.h>
    
    #define strt_blnce 2000.00
    #define yrly_intrst .02
    
    int main (int argc, char **argv){
    
    
    float dpst, withdrw, withdrw2, blnce, crdt, dbt, intrst,
    finalblnce,blnce2;
    int date, opt;
    
    printf("Your current balance is $%1.2f \n", strt_blnce);
    
    printf("Banking program \n");
    printf("1.) Deposit funds (credit transaction) \n");
    printf("2.) Withdraw funds (debit transaction) \n");
    printf("3.) Print statement of the acct \n");
    printf("4.) Compute interest and exit program \n");
    printf("Please indicate you option: ");
    scanf("%d",&opt);
    
    
    switch(opt){
    case 1:
    crdt++;
    printf("Please enter a valid date from 1 to 31: ");
    scanf("%d", &date);
    printf("How much do you want to deposit? ");
    scanf("%f", &dpst);
    blnce = strt_blnce + dpst;
    printf("Your current balance is $%1.2f. \n", blnce);
    printf("Please indicate your option: ");
    scanf("%d", &opt);
    
    
    case 2:
    printf("Please enter a valid date from 1 to 31: ");
    scanf("%d", &date);
    printf("How much do you want to withdraw? ");
    scanf("%f", &withdrw);
    if (withdrw > blnce) {
    printf("Please enter a smaller amt. \n");
    printf("How much do you want to withdraw? ");
    scanf("%f", &withdrw);
    }else
    blnce2 = blnce - withdrw;
    printf("Your current balance is $%1.2f. \n", blnce2);
    dbt++;
    printf("Please indicate your option: ");
    scanf("%d", &opt);
    
    case 3:
    printf("Please enter a valid date from 1 to 31: ");
    scanf("%d", &date);
    printf("Your current balance is $%1.2f. \n", blnce);
    printf("Number of credit transactions: %d \n ", crdt);
    printf("Number of debit trasactions: %d \n ", dbt );
    printf("Please indicate your option: ");
    scanf("%d", &opt);
    
    case 4:
    printf("Statement of Account for October, 2004 \n");
    printf("Number of credit transactions: %.2d \n ", crdt);
    printf("Number of debit transactions: %.2d \n ", dbt);
    intrst = blnce * yrly_intrst * 12;
    printf("Interest computed: $%1.2f \n", intrst);
    finalblnce = blnce + intrst;
    printf("Good Bye!! \n");
    
    }
    
    
    
    
    return 0;

    No I am not an idiot... I am just more hardware than programming.. So this is not as easy as if I had to deal with servers, hubs, routers.. So sorry if it seems like I am an idiot.. But I am not and I don't appreciate being called one...

    is that your entire program or did you cut it down?....it seems to me you need a loop....

    Why do the variables crdt and dbt need to be type float? When you use them to display your report, you are specifying an integer, and passing a type float value to printf(). Also, you might want to initialise crdt and dbt to zero before you use them. Do you really need to use the <math.h> header?

    move printf accordingly after seeing output (ex: "Banking Program" should probably be outside of loop that i added)
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <math.h>
    
    #define strt_blnce 2000.00
    #define yrly_intrst .02
    
    int main(int argc, char **argv)
    {
    
        float dpst, withdrw, withdrw2, blnce, crdt, dbt, intrst,
            finalblnce, blnce2;
        int date, opt = -1;
    
        //YOU SHOULD INDENT EVERYTHING INSIDE THIS LOOP
        //BUT I'M NOT GOING TO
      
         while(opt != 4){
    
        printf("Your current balance is $%1.2f \n", strt_blnce);
    
        printf("Banking program \n");
        printf("1.) Deposit funds (credit transaction) \n");
        printf("2.) Withdraw funds (debit transaction) \n");
        printf("3.) Print statement of the acct \n");
        printf("4.) Compute interest and exit program \n");
        printf("Please indicate you option: ");
        scanf("%d", &opt);
    
    
        switch (opt) {
        case 1:
            crdt++;
            printf("Please enter a valid date from 1 to 31: ");
            scanf("%d", &date);
            printf("How much do you want to deposit? ");
            scanf("%f", &dpst);
            blnce = strt_blnce + dpst;
            printf("Your current balance is $%1.2f. \n", blnce);
            printf("Please indicate your option: ");
            scanf("%d", &opt);
    
    
        case 2:
            printf("Please enter a valid date from 1 to 31: ");
            scanf("%d", &date);
            printf("How much do you want to withdraw? ");
            scanf("%f", &withdrw);
            if (withdrw > blnce) {
                printf("Please enter a smaller amt. \n");
                printf("How much do you want to withdraw? ");
                scanf("%f", &withdrw);
            } else
                blnce2 = blnce - withdrw;
            printf("Your current balance is $%1.2f. \n", blnce2);
            dbt++;
            printf("Please indicate your option: ");
            scanf("%d", &opt);
        case 3:
            printf("Please enter a valid date from 1 to 31: ");

            printf("Please indicate your option: ");
            scanf("%d", &opt);
    
        case 4:
            printf("Statement of Account for October, 2004 \n");
            printf("Number of credit transactions: %.2d \n ", crdt);
            printf("Number of debit transactions: %.2d \n ", dbt);
            intrst = blnce * yrly_intrst * 12;
            printf("Interest computed: $%1.2f \n", intrst);
            finalblnce = blnce + intrst;
            printf("Good Bye!! \n");
    
        }
    
    
       }//END LOOP

    oh oh oh oh.....

    make sure you dbt = 0 before using dbt++;....
    if you don't do that dbt's value is the value of whatever was in that spot in memory before



    make sure you initialize any variable you use for a counter...
    saying
    int count;
    does not necessarily mean count will be zero
