    Menu-Driven Program Help...

    Hello,

    I have this menu-driven payroll program that's supposed to start out like this and perform the following options:

    Payroll Maintenance Program
    Main Menu

    1. Add a Record
    2. Display a Record
    3. Modify a Record
    4. Delete a Record
    5. Write Payroll File
    6. Read Payroll File
    7. Exit Program

    Enter your selection (1-7) ->


    so far I have option 1, 2, & 4 written in the code. I'm not sure how to do option 3. Anyways, when I try to test out what I have so far it won't seem to compile. I've tried debugging but I'm still stuck. =[ Can someone please point me out to the right direction? Any help would be great, thank you!

    here's my code so far: http://www.geocities.com/kitkatbar01/project6.htm

    you can't debug a program that will not compile without errors because the compiler does not (or should not) produce an executable program. You also want the program to compile with no warnings because most of the time warnings are really errors.

    what compiler are you using. compile it with Dev-C++ and the compiler will show you the errors. For example, the first error was at the end of struct employeeRecord declaration -- PayRecord *nextPayRecord; PayRecord is undefined symbol.

    Function pick1() -- you start a do loop but failed to end it with a while statement.

    we all have that problem occasionally The first error reported is almost always the actual problem -- fix it (such as the do-loop problem I mentioned) and that will probably fix several others. Correct indentention will help you out a lot too -- don't just start each line in the left-most position.
