    "error C2075: '_Tmp' : array initialization needs curly braces", huh?

    I have to write a program that inputs data for a payroll, puts the info into 3 arrays and then use bubble sort to sort them alphabetically. When I compile I get these errors:

    Error 10 error C2075: '_Tmp' : array initialization needs curly braces
    and
    Error 11 error C2106: '=' : left operand must be l-value

    I marked where I think the errors are coming from.

    Here is my code
    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    #include<iomanip>
    #include<string>
    #include<cmath>
    #include<fstream>
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include<cctype>
    using namespace std;
    void input(char employee[100][100], int hours[100], float payrolldata[100][100], double& r, char& l, int& d, int& y);
    void grosspay(char employee[100][100], int hours[100], float payrolldata[100][100], double& r, char& l, int& d, int& y);
    void fedtax(float payrolldata[100][100], int& y);
    void fica(float payrolldata[100][100], int& y);
    void healthcare(float payrolldata[100][100], int& y, int& d, char& l);
    void netpay(float payrolldata[100][100], int& y);
    void bubbledown(char employee[100][100], int hours[100], float payrolldata[100][100], int& y);
    int main()
    {
    	char employee[100][100];
    	int hours[100];
    	float payrolldata[100][100];
    	double r;
    	char l;
    	char x='y';
    	int d=0;

    	while(x=='y')
    	{
    		input(employee, hours, payrolldata, r, l, d, y);
    		cout << endl << "Add another employee?(y/n): ";
    		cin >> x;
    		cin.ignore();
    	}
    	bubbledown(employee, hours, payrolldata, y);
    	return 0;
    }

    		{
    			if(employee[i]<employee[j])
    			{
    				swap(employee[i], employee[j]);         //I think the problem is in here
    				swap(hours[i], hours[j]);               //because when I delete it I don't
    				swap(payrolldata[i], payrolldata[j]);   // get the errors.
    			}
    		}
    	}
    }
    Any help would be great, thanks.

    The error seems to be occurring in the implementation of swap. I'm not sure if you are allowed to swap arrays. The swap of hours should work, but the other two might need extra effort.

    If you had used strings and vectors then it would probably work correctly.

    I'm not sure if you are allowed to swap arrays.
    You're not, since swap works on types that have normal copying semantics, and arrays are not copyable.
