    Question Help - where am I screwing up/

    This is for final project and this is last part that needs completed, I don't understand why its giving me problems. It is fine except for this one part of the code.

    Code:
    system("cls");
    	system("color 8A");
    	char runAgain;
    	tripEntry travels[100];
    	int counter = 0;
    	
    	do
    	{
    		do
    		{
    			cout << "Enter the trip ID number: ";
    			cin >> travels[counter].ID;
    			cout << "Enter the distance traveled on " << travels[counter].ID << ":";
    			cin << travels[counter].distance;
    			cout << "Enter the amount you are reimbursed per mile." << endl << "     (I.E.  0.25 for 25 cents)     ";
    			cin >> travels[counter].reimburse;
    			cout << "Add another trip? [Y/N]  ";
    			cin >> runAgain;
    			counter++;
    			runAgain = toupper(runAgain);
    		}while(runAgain == 'Y');
    
    		system("cls");
    
    		print_Top();
    		cout << VTUBE << " Trip ID     Miles     $/Mile     Reimburstment " << VTUBE << endl;
    		print_Mid();
    		for (int count =0; count<counter;count++)
    			cout << VTUBE << setw(8) << travels[count].ID << setw(10) << travels[count].distance << setw(6) << "$" << setw(5) << travels[count].reimburse << setw(12) << "$" << setw(6) << travels[count].distance * travels[count].reimburse << setw(2) << VTUBE << endl;
    
    		print_Bottom();
    
    		cout << "Do you want to make another? ";
    		cin >> runAgain;
    		runAgain = toupper(runAgain);
    
    	}while (runAgain =='Y');
    I have tried making HANDLE's to send it out specifically.

    I have to use ifstream and ofstreams in another part of the program, but don't seem to have an impact on any other parts.

    The errors I get are:
    Error 32 error C2784: 'std::basic_ostream<_Elem,_Traits> &std:perator <<(std::basic_ostream<_Elem,_Traits> &,_Elem)' : could not deduce template argument for 'std::basic_ostream<_Elem,_Traits> &' from 'std::istream'

    On which line does the error message relate to?

If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    All of the ones with 'cout' and 'cin'.

    Fix this line:

    Code:
    			cin << travels[counter].distance;
    You have << where you should have >>

    Lightbulb Wow!

    I am not only stupefied that I missed that, but that it caused 55 errors. I shouldn't be too surprised since I have looked so hard it for as long as I did.

    I thank you for the 2nd pair of eyes, to look at it.
