    Can someone please help me with my assignment (Help Needed Desperately)

    I am having trouble adding two records one after the other. There’s no problem when I add the first record but when I try to add another I get that exception error message. When I close the program down and run it again and then try to add the record it works fine (that’s until I try to add the second record again), anyways this is the code I got so far…………

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    #include <string.h>
    #include <alloc.h>
    
    FILE *fSupplier;

    void AmendSupplierRecord();

    bool SearchSupplierOne();
    void DisplaySearchedSupplierRecord();
    bool WriteNewSupplierRecord();

    void AddSupplierNode(struct SupplierRefer **q, int num);

    I better provide bit more information about the program

    This program suppose to create three separate text files, am still working on the first (supplier.txt) file got another two more files to work.

    The user should be able to view, add and amend records. I think only problem with the program right now is that it just doesn't allow me to add two records one after the other. Once the problem is fixed I can move on to the other two files :-)

    A couple things to get started (from a quick read-thru). You close by a function and directly - pick one method and stick to it. "SearchBySupplier doesn't close the file unless it succeeds - but always opens - fix this.

    Your recursive calls to AddSupplierRecord keep opening the file again with no close - you may be just using up all the available file pointers. Also the WriteNewSupplierRecord doesn't return anything after it recalls AddSupplierRecord - but sadly enough you don't know what to return in his case - you will have to straighten out your logic here - put all the conditional part of developing the record into one function and the open, write, close and add to tree stuff in the other then call it only when everything is ok.

    There may be more, but that should get you started again.
