    stupid formatting ?

    Pardon the mess. Program works, 1 annoying thing is the divider1, always runs into the Attendance Report. All the other dividers behave normally. I tried just using a cout for the "Attendance Report", then moved it to a void/void, and that one divider does the same thing in each case. Thanks for any help, I'm sure it's something very simple....

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <iomanip>
    //#include <string>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    //constants and  voids
    const int SCREEN_WIDTH = 70;
    const char BLANK = ' ';
    void PrintWelcome (void);
    void PrintWelcome2 (void);
    void Divider1 (void);
    void Divider2 (void);
    
    
    int main (void)
    {
    	int NumberOfVisitors;
    	int  CMorn;
    		int CAft;
    		int CTot;
    		int CPer;
    		int FMorn;
    		int FAft;
    		int FTot;
    		int FPer;
    		int RMorn;
    		int RAft;
    		int RTot;
    		int RPer;
    		int TotalMorn;
    			int TotalAft;
    			int GrandTot;
    			int TotalMorning;
    			int TotalAfternoon;
    			int GrandTotal;
    
    
    
    PrintWelcome ();
    //cout << setw(52) << "Aaron's Amusement Park" << endl;
    //cout << endl;
    
    Divider1 () ;
    cout << endl;
    
    
    //cout << setw(52) << "Attendance Report" << endl;
    PrintWelcome2 ();
    cout << endl;
    
    Divider1 () ;
    cout << endl;
    cout << "Enter the number  of visitors at the park : ";
    
    cin  >> NumberOfVisitors ;
    if ( NumberOfVisitors > 0)
    
    cout << "good"  << endl;
    
    else cout << "error";
    Divider2 ();
    
    cout << "For Ride #1, The Carousel:"  ;
    cout << endl;
    cout << "Morning Riders: " ;
    cin >> CMorn;
    cout << endl;
    cout << "Afternoon Riders"  ;
    cin >> CAft;
    cout << endl;
    CTot = CAft + CMorn;
    cout << "Total Riders: " << CTot  ;
    CPer = (CTot / double(NumberOfVisitors)) * 100;
    cout << "Percent of Riders: " << CPer ;
    cout << endl;
    Divider2 ();
    
    cout << "For Ride #2, The Ferris Wheel:" ;
    cout << "Morning Riders: "  ;
    cin >> FMorn;
    cout << endl;
    cout << "Afternoon Riders" << endl;
    cin >> FAft;
    cout << endl;
    FTot = FAft + FMorn;
    cout << "Total Riders: " << FTot  ;
    FPer = (FTot / double(NumberOfVisitors)) * 100;
    cout << endl;
    cout << "Percent of Riders: " << FPer ;
    cout << endl;
    Divider2 ();
    
    cout << "For Ride #3, The Roller Coaster:" ;
    cout << "Morning Riders: " << endl;
    cin >> RMorn;
    cout << "Afternoon Riders" << endl;
    cin >> RAft;
    RTot = RAft + RMorn;
    cout << "Total Riders: " << RTot  ;
    RPer = (RTot / double(NumberOfVisitors)) * 100;
    cout << "Percent of Riders: " << RPer ;
    TotalMorning = CMorn + FMorn + RMorn;
    TotalAfternoon = CAft + CMorn +  RMorn;
    GrandTotal = TotalMorning + TotalAfternoon;
    cout << "Total Morning Riders: " << TotalMorning ;
    cout << "Total Afternoon Riders: " << TotalAfternoon ;
    cout << "Grand Total Riders: "  << GrandTotal;
    cout << endl;
    
    
    Divider2 ();
    
    
    	return 0;
    }
    void PrintWelcome (void)
    {
    	cout << setw(52) << "Aaron's Amusement Park";
    	cout << endl ;
    
    } 
    void PrintWelcome2 (void)
    {
    	cout << setw(52) << "Attendance Report";
    	cout << endl;
    }
    void Divider1 (void)
    {
    	cout << setfill ('=');
    	cout << setw(SCREEN_WIDTH) << BLANK << endl;
    }
    void Divider2 (void)
    {
    	cout << setfill ('-');
    	cout << setw(SCREEN_WIDTH) << BLANK << endl;
    }

    Reset the fill to blank after setting it to something else.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    added a cout.fill(' '); right after attendance and that worked...not sure why none of the others behaved this way tho...

    Thanks!!

    I guess you want your output like so:
    Code:
                                   Aaron's Amusement Park
     =====================================================================
     
                                        Attendance Report
     
     =====================================================================
     
     (ignore the breaks in the lines containing the = signs,  
     they're only showing because this forum software forces breaks after X number of characters)
    I put "cout << setfill(' ');" as the last line of Divider1(), I'd recommend doing the same to Divider2(). Reseting the fill right after changing it would be a better practice than going across two different functions.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
