    local defintion errors?! Help

    Ok basicly I'm trying to add a menu to a program that sorts names entered. Giving the options of ascending and descending and exiting the program. But I keep getting local defintion errors.....thanks in advance.

    Code:
    #include "stdafx.h"
    
    #using <mscorlib.dll>
    
    using namespace System;
    using namespace std;
    
    void mfSkipLine(int);
    String* mfstrGetNames(int);
    
    int displayMenu();
    void asending();
    void desending();
    
    int _tmain()
    {
    	int intComp;
        int intCt;
    	int intCt1;
    	int intFound;
    	
    	
    
    	String* ComPar;
    	String* temp;
    
    	String* var1;
    	String* var2;
    	String* var3;
    	String* var4;
    	String* var5;
    
    	String* out1;
    	String* out2;	
    	String* out3;
    	String* out4;
    	String* out5;
    
    	int menuChoice = 0;
    	
    
    	Console::WriteLine("Alphabetical Order Program");
    	mfSkipLine(7);
    
    
    
    	menuChoice = displayMenu();
    
    while (menuChoice != 3)
    	{
    		if (menuChoice == 1)
    			asending();
    		else if (menuChoice == 2)
    			desending();
    		else
    			Console::WriteLine("Invalid menu choice");
    
    		menuChoice = displayMenu();
    	}
    	
    
    
    int displayMenu()
    {
    	Console::WriteLine("1		Ascending Order");
    	Console::WriteLine("2		Descending Order");
    	Console::WriteLine("3		Exit Program");
    	Console::Write("Enter Menu Option: ");
    	return Convert::ToInt32(Console::ReadLine());
    }
    {
    	intCt = 1;
    
    	while(intCt < 6)
    	{
    		temp = mfstrGetNames(intCt);
    
    		if(intCt == 1) var1 = temp;
    		if(intCt == 2) var2 = temp;
    		if(intCt == 3) var3 = temp;
    		if(intCt == 4) var4 = temp;
    		if(intCt == 5) var5 = temp;
    
    		intCt = intCt + 1;
    	}
    
    	mfSkipLine(2);
    
    	intCt = 1;
    
    	//loop 1
    	while (intCt < 6)
    	{
    		temp = "ZZZZZZZZZZ";
    		intFound = 0;
    		intCt1 = 1;

    				temp = ComPar;
    			}

    	}
    
    	mfSkipLine(2);
    	Console::ReadLine();
    	return 0;
    
    }
    
    
    
    String* mfstrGetNames(int intCt)

    	return temp;
    	
    }
    
    void mfSkipLine (int intLines)
    {
    	int intCt;
    
    	intCt = intLines;
    
    	while (intCt > 0)
    	{
    		Console::WriteLine("");
    		 intCt = intCt - 1;
    	}
    }
    }

    Glad you figured it out But for future reference, when you get errors it would be VERY helpful if you posted:
    a) Exactly what the error says
    b) The line that the error appears on.

    Good to see you used code tags though Happy coding!
    Just Google It. √

    On a side note, I strongly recommend that you use arrays instead of the numbered groups of variables. That allows you to use your integer as an index into the array.
    All the buzzt!
