    Array problem

    Ok I want to make an array to hold a name, char name2[12]; or int name[12] should have made me an array but when I type name[1]=3; for example, it comes up with alot of errors, should I use a string? I tried the same things with a string but the same errors came up.
    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    struct database
    
    {
    
    int id_number;
    
    int age;
    
    float salary;
    
    int name[12];
    
    char name2[12];
    
    };
    
    int main()
    
    {
    
    database employee;
    
    employee.age=22;
    
    employee.id_number=19;
    
    employee.salary=12000;
    
    cout<<"ID NUMBER :"<<employee.id_number<<endl;
    cout<<"Age :"<<employee.age<<endl;
    cout<<"salary earned :"<<employee.salary<<endl;
    
    return 0;
    
    }

    You can use the strcpy function to copy a string into a character array:
    Code:
    #include <string.h>
    strcpy(employee.name2, "Monster");
    Or just use a string:
    Code:
    #include <string>
    string name2; 
    name2 = "Monster";

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    
    using std::string;
    using std::cout;
    using std::endl;
    
    struct database{
    
    int id_number;
    int age;
    float salary;
    string name;
    string name2;
    
    };
    
    int main()
    
    {
    
    	database employee;
    
    	employee.age=22;
    	employee.id_number=19;
    	employee.salary=12000;
    	employee.name = "Fordy";
    	employee.name2 = "Fordy2";
    
    	cout << "ID NUMBER :" << employee.id_number << endl;
    	cout << "Age :" << employee.age << endl;
    	cout << "salary earned :" << employee.salary << endl;
    	cout << "name1 :" << employee.name << endl;
    	cout << "name2 :" << employee.name2 << endl;
    
    	return 0;
    
    }

    It works but I don;t know why, when typing in it doesn;t compile but copy and paste works!
