    Question Strange errorwith feedback

    I have a strange error.

    I input a few values, and when I display them to see whether I is correct, the name and the surname values are f***ed up.

    I've been sitting with this error four an hour, but still cant figure it out

    PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Run the exe file to see what I mean.

    The functions to enter the values in in the user.cpp file and the function cals are in the payinvoice.cpp file.


    I'm using borland c++ 5.02

    You'll have to point me in the direction of the problem... I don't want to figure out how your code works just to help you

    (which file is the input/output in?)

    No memory is allocated for the char[] as no size is specified. Specify a size for the char[]. Also branchcode should be int, not int[].

    in user.h :
    Code:
          char name[];
          char surname[];
          char bank[];
          char branch[];
          int branchCode[];
          ...
          char company[];
    change to
    Code:
          char name[21];
          char surname[21];
          char bank[21];
          char branch[21];
          int branchCode;
          ...
          char company[21];
    in user.cpp
    Code:
    void User::getBranchCode()
    {
       input(19,3,branchCode,21);
    }
    change to
    Code:
    void User::getBranchCode()
    {
       input(19,3,&branchCode,21);
    }

    Thanx for the help.

    but what I still don't understand is the fact the when the feedback comes up, that only the company displays corect, as to where the company, surname and name is of the same data type?
