    A question about arrays

    Hello

    My question is that is it possible for the user to decide which array element they want to input the data into.

    A printf statement can ask the user which element they want to put the data into. Say an array of 9 elements is defined is it possible that user can choose to put data in the 5th element.

    I would appriciate any help anybody can give me.

    Yes.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    get the number and put into a variable, say inputnum. Let's assume the "data" is an int named mydata:
    Code:
    int myarray[9];
    myarray[inputnum] = mydata;
    Silence is better than unmeaning words.

    But don't forget to check that the user doesn't supply an array element number that is out of bounds.
