thanks guys for all your help so far...i think i have the loading part of this program ok, i then am using a function to output specs about the month and a total days up to and including that month.
(would you mind looking at the file to see if it's a mess or okay?) it runs and works well.
The next thing I have to do is input a month name (string) and output the same info.
I am reeeeally grreen with strings and wonder if there is a way i can begin with
"enter month number OR name" and get the same output using a diff function for each.
I know I have to use string compare, but like I said I am trying hard to get it but haven't yet.
Thanks.so much. I have learned MORE at this forum than anywhere else!
I have included the program as a link.
