    Question What is wrong with my code?

    //Ask user to input # of a num
    //Check for legal input
    //Print out:
    //The name of the num is _____ .

    Code:
    #include 
    using namespace std; 
    
    
    int main() 
    { 
    	int num; 
    
    	cout<<"Please enter the number of a month: "; 
    	cin>>num; 
    	
    	if ( (num < 1 ) || (num > 12) ) 
    		cout<<"Thatís not the number of a month. "<<endl; 
    	else 
    	{ 
    		cout<<"The name of the month is: "; 
    
    		if (num == 1) 
    			cout<<"January"; 
    		else if (num == 2) 
    			cout<<"February"; 
    		else if (num == 3) 
    			cout<<"March"; 
    		else if (num == 4) 
    			cout<<"April"; 
    		else if (num == 5) 
    			cout<<"May"; 
    		else if (num == 6) 
    			cout<<"June"; 
    		else if (num == 7) 
    			cout<<"July"; 
    		else if (num == 8) 
    			cout<<"August"; 
    		else if (num == 9) 
    			cout<<"September"; 
    		else if (num == 10) 
    			cout<<"October"; 
    		else if (num == 11) 
    			cout<<"November"; 
    		else 
    			cout<<"December"; 
    
    		cout<<"."<<endl; 
    	} 
    
    return 0; 
    
    }
    
    
    It will not execute.  It is saying that I have one error.

    Well, you don't have any header file name after your #include statement...once I corrected that to #include <iostream> the code compiled without error and appears to function properly. Maybe if you posted the error message?

    Question

    It is saying that I have one error.
    What error are you getting?

    I see you forgot something.
    #include <what?>

    I know you need <iostream> for using cin, cout, << , >>
    Maybe thats your problem if not at least one problem has been solved.
    I hope this helps. pls let me know.
