    Hello I wrote this code everything works fine but i don'nt know how to put it all into an array. The user enteres 8 piece of information and i want all of that to be put into 1 element in an array. I will be greatful if someone can fix it for me.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>

    typedef struct { 
    	int day;
    	int month;
    	int year;
    } Date;
    
    typedef struct {
    	float cost;
    } Price;
    
    typedef struct {
    	char make[s];
    	Date purchaseDate;
    	Date manufactureDate;
    	Price purchasePrice;
    } Car;
    
    int main()
    {
    	Date date;
    	Price price;
    	Car car;
    	
    printf("Please Enter the name of the car: ");
    scanf("%s",&car.make);
    
    printf(" Please enter the day of purchase: ");
    scanf("%d", &car.purchaseDate.day);
    
    printf(" Please enter the month of purchase: ");
    scanf("%d", &car.purchaseDate.month);
    
    printf(" Please enter the year of purchase: ");
    scanf("%d", &car.purchaseDate.year);
    		
    printf(" Please enter the day of manufacture: ");
    scanf("%d", &car.manufactureDate.day);
    
    printf(" Please enter the month of manufacture: ");
    scanf("%d", &car.manufactureDate.month);
    
    printf(" Please enter the year of manufacture: ");
    scanf("%d", &car.manufactureDate.year);
    		
    printf(" Please enter the price the car was bought for: ");
    scanf("%f", &car.purchasePrice.cost);
    
    printf(" The name of the car is %s \n", car.make);
    		
    printf(" The car was purchased on the %d of the %d month of the year %d \n", car.purchaseDate.day, car.purchaseDate.month, car.purchaseDate.year);
    
    printf(" The car was manufactured on the %d of the %d month of the year %d \n", car.manufactureDate.day, car.manufactureDate.month, car.manufactureDate.year);
    
    printf(" The car was bought for %f \n",car.purchasePrice.cost);
    
    
    return 0;
    }

    Do you mean that
    Code:
    int main()
    {
        // Date date;    // not used
        // Price price;  // not used
        Car car[10];    // array of 10 cars
    	
        printf("Please Enter the name of the car: ");
        scanf("%s",car[0].make);
    
       printf(" Please enter the day of purchase: ");
       scanf("%d", &car[0].purchaseDate.day);
       .....

    Code:
    scanf("%s",&car.make);
    instead of this take a string variable and use strcpy().
