    Why does it work in Visual Studio and Not Borland

    My project is nearly done however the teacher is running Borland and I am running Visual Studio. The Program is about 99% working but when I put it in Borland it doesn't work and gives me all these link errors. Can someone help me remmedy this problem ?

    Judging by the vagueness of the question I can only give you a general answer. I may make many jokes at borlands expense but it does at least conform to the standards. VC++ doesn't always do this. This could be your problem. Or the version of the borland compiler may be older and some libraries you are using may not be supported (if your a newbie I'm doubtful that this is the case). Are you running the same OS's in both cases?

    Or to rephrase what master said... VC++ may allow you to write things that are not standard code, hence Borland pukes on it.

    Found my old user Name :-)

    Hehe I finally found my user name :-) Anyhow if I were o post my code do you guys think you could maybe point out what Borland Pukes on ???

    Also maybe you could help me two things
    -On the output.txt file I need it to set presision to two dec. points however when I do the set pression command I only get two numbers !?!?!?!
    -There is an error in my code that computes all emplyees axcept for my last one?

    Other than that, she works like a million bucks ( This is my first major C++ project so I am pretty happy with myself thus far)
    Code:
    #include<iostream.h>
    #include<fstream.h>
    #include<iomanip.h>
    
    int process_employee(int& empnum, float& emprate, float& emphours, ifstream& inData);
    void process_payroll(ifstream& inData, ofstream& outData, 
    					 const float& FEDERAL_TAX, 
    					 const float& STATE_TAX,
    					 const float& SOCSEC_TAX,
    					 float& totalGP, float& totalNP, float& totalFT, float& totalST,
    					 float& totalSS);
    void print_summary(ofstream& outData, float& totalGP, float& totalNP, 
    				  float& totalFT, float& totalST, float& totalSS);
    
    int main()
    {
    const float FEDERAL_TAX = .15; 
    const float STATE_TAX = .0524;
    const float SOCSEC_TAX = .07;

    }
    
    int process_employee(int& empnum, float& emprate, float& emphours, ifstream& inData)
    {
      inData >> empnum;

      }
    }
    		  
    void print_summary(ofstream& outData, float& totalGP, float& totalNP, 
    				  float& totalFT, float& totalST, float& totalSS)
    {
      outData << "Summary-Totals for all employees\n" << endl;
    
      	  outData <<  setw(13) << "Gross Pay" << setw(13) << "Net Pay" << setw(13) 
    	  << "Fedral Tax" << setw(13) << "State Tax" << setw(13) << "Social Security"

    	  outData <<  setw(13) << totalGP << setw(13) << totalNP << setw(13) 
    	  << totalFT << setw(13) << totalST << setw(13) << totalSS
    	  << endl; 
    }
    The input file looks like this:

    1121 15.12 40
    9876 9.50 47
    3333 22.00 35
    2585 12.24 32

    First Row being emplyee numbers, Second Row being Pay Rate and THird Being Hours they worked.

    Easier to read than before! (although the formatting isn't perfect)

    Halo, all I did was put the code between two tags: [ code ] and [ /code ] (without the space after the [ and before the ] )

    Yes, no spaces, if he put spaces, then it would have formatted the text into code format, and you wouldnt see what the code tags look like
