    Incoming phone call program for C++

    Newbie here!!!!

    I just started taking C++ in college and I know this is C++ basic, but trying to wrap my head around it.

    We are to create a program (basically scheduling appointment by phone) asking to input 1, 2 or 3 (which is an office location), then it will ask for an appointment type (1, 2, 3, or 4). Once this is completed, it will show the proper message(12 different options) e.g.

    Office location:
    Press 1 for Syracuse office
    Press 2 for Albany office
    Press 3 for Rochester office
    (once the above is selected)

    Press 1 new appointment
    Press 2 reschedule appointment
    Press 3 Billing
    Press 4 Talk to nurse

    after these have been selected, (you now can see the 12 different messages that can be shown) and should show the following:

    e.g. you pressed 2 for office and then pressed 3 for billing, Message should show
    Rochester: billing question

    This has to be done using the Swith form and or the else/if, or else if!
    Any input would greatly be appreciated,

    Bill

    I have the following:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using std::cout;
    using std::cin;
    using std::endl;
    
    int main()
    {
        //Declare variables
        int officeNumber = 0;
        int selectionNumber = 0;
    
        //Input data
        cout << "Enter office number." << endl;
        cout << "Press 1 for Syracuse office " << endl;
        cout << "Press 2 for Albany office " << endl;
        cout << "Press 3 for Rochester office " << endl;
        cin >> officeNumber;
        cout << "Enter selection number." << endl;
        cout << "Press 1 for making new appointment" << endl;
        cout << "Press 2 for rescheduling an appointment" << endl;
        cout << "Press 3 for billing questions" << endl;
        cout << "Press 4 for talking to a nurse" << endl;
        cin >> selectionNumber;
        
        //Begin SWITCH & Display selection
        switch (selectionNumber)
        {
          case 1: cout << "?????: " << endl;
                  break;
          case 2: cout << "?????: " << endl;
                  break;
          case 3: cout << "?????: " << endl;
                   break;                                        
          default: cout << "INPUT ERROR" << endl;
        }//End SWITCH
    system("pause");
    return 0; 
    }

    Here is one way of doing it. Obviously, I didn't finish it, but I did get it started and the rest should be self explanatory. There is probably a more efficient way of doing it but I'm too tired to think right now.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;
    int main ()
    {
    
        //Declare variables
        int officeNumber = 0;
        int selectionNumber = 0;
    
        //Input data
        cout << "Enter office number." << endl;
        cout << "Press 1 for Syracuse office " << endl;
        cout << "Press 2 for Albany office " << endl;
        cout << "Press 3 for Rochester office " << endl;
        cin >> officeNumber;
    
    
        cout << "Enter selection number." << endl;
        cout << "Press 1 for making new appointment" << endl;
        cout << "Press 2 for rescheduling an appointment" << endl;
        cout << "Press 3 for billing questions" << endl;
        cout << "Press 4 for talking to a nurse" << endl;
        cin >> selectionNumber;
        
        if (officeNumber == 1 && selectionNumber == 1)
    	{
    		cout << " Saracuse : Making new appt.\n";
    	}
    
    	else if (officeNumber == 1 && selectionNumber == 2)
    	{
    		cout << " Saracuse: Rescheduling appt\n";
    
    	}
    system("pause");
    return 0; 
    }

    Try not to do people's homework for them. That's no good for anyone.

    OP:
    You can print 2 parts of the message in 2 switch statements.

    Code:
    switch (officeNumber) {
    ...
    }
    switch (selectionNumber) {
    ...
    }

    Thanks CF,

    I am glad you didn't do my homework, one can't learn if someone does it for you!

    I'll take your input and play with that as well...

    Many thanks for the suggestions all!
