    could I get a bit more help

    Hello, I keep getting this error

    Run-Time Check Failure #2 – Stack around the variable ‘wage’ was corrupted

    anyone able to point me in the right direction please?

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <iomanip>
    #include <C:\Documents and Settings\Pat\Desktop\school\prog14.cpp\prog14.cpp\empinfo.h.cpp>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
    	const int MAX = 25;
    	struct info employee[MAX];
    	int count = 1;
    	char (ret);
    
    	for (int i=0; i<=count; i++)
    	{
    		cout << "input Last Name:"<< endl;
    		cin.getline (employee[i].last1,25);
    		cout << "Input First Name:" << endl;
    		cin.getline (employee[i].first1,25);
    		cout << "Input payrate:" << endl;
    		cin >> employee[i].payrate;
    		cout << "Input Hours Worked:" << endl;
    		cin >> employee[i].hours;
    		cin.get (ret);
    	}
    double wage[1];
    
    for (int j=0; j<=count; j++)
    {
    	
    if (employee[j].hours <=40)
    	wage[j] = employee[j].payrate *40;
    else  wage[j] =employee[j].payrate*40 +(employee[j].hours - 40) * employee[j].payrate * (3/2);
    
    cout << employee[j].last1 << setw(10) << employee[j].first1 << endl;
    cout << employee[j].payrate << endl;
    cout << employee[j].hours << endl;
    }
    
    
    	return 0;
    }

    you might want to work on your indenting, it's kinda hard to read like that

    Code:
    for (int j=0; j<=count; j++)
    that goes outside of the wage array

    Code:
    double wage[1];
    you're planning on adding more right?

    either change count to 2 or replace wage[1] by wage[any number higher than 1]

    Or to be more precise, I think you want
    Code:
    double wage[MAX];
    Edit: Also, if count is the number of employees, the loop conditions should be i<count and j<count, not i<=count and j<=count.

    I told you that in your other thread.
    help
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
