    Just Starting Functions

    Just started working with functions and I cant figure out why this doesnt work. Can someone please explain? I know its probably something dumb, I just need some fresh eyes!

    It only prints the Thank you for using our program message.

    TY Justin



    Code:
           #include <stdio.h>
    	
    	void Print_Intro_Heading();
    	
    	int main()
    	{
    	void Print_Intro_Heading();
    
    	printf ("\nThanks for using our Banking program!\n");
    
    	return 0;
    	}
    
    	// This function prints an overall title for the program output.  
    	void Print_Intro_Heading() 
    	{
    	printf ("************************************\n" 
    
                    "WELCOME TO THE JLH BANKING PROGRAM!\n"
    	
                    "***********************************\n");
    	}

    Code:
    	int main()
    	{
    	void Print_Intro_Heading();
    Remove the void and it will work

    You don't need the datatype ("void") when you call the function. Think of it like a variable. Just use the identifier to access it. If you use the datatype it's like you're trying to declare it.
