    empty character constant error

    Can someone tell me what this error means and how can I fix it. I know it has to be something simple that I am overlooking. I have included the part of my program that contains the error:

    Code:
    void NameFind(string carName[], string workOrder[], string mechanic[], int count, char let)
    {
    	int a;
    	int b=0;
    	cout << "\nCars with last name beginning with" << let << ":\n";
    
    	for(a=0; a<count; ++a)
    	{
    		if(carName[a].find(toupper(let)) ==0)
    		{
    			cout << "\nCar name:" << carName[a] << '' << "Work order:" << workOrder[a] << '' << "Mechanic:" <<mechanic[a];//error appears in this line????
    			++b;
    		}
    	}
    	if(b==0)
    		cout << "There are no cars whose last name begins with " << let <<". \n";
    }
