You're welcome in advance.

Out of 290 lines you aren't really asking us to guess what lines have errors and what the errors are, are you? Details, please...

Sorry For the Lack of detail.
THe compiler gives the following errors -

pim.cpp:106: parse error before `.'
pim.cpp: In function `void searchContacts(...)':
pim.cpp:112: `count' undeclared (first use this function)
pim.cpp:112: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
pim.cpp:112: for each function it appears in.)
pim.cpp:114: `contacts' undeclared (first use this function)
pim.cpp:114: parse error before `||'
pim.cpp:118: warning: implicit declaration of function `int print(...)'
pim.cpp:120: confused by earlier errors, bailing out

>>pim.cpp:106: parse error before `.'
You can't pass in pim.contacts[] , only pim Start with that.

Also when you post the errors, be sure to specify which line number in the posted code is the line number in the message. Your numbers were off by 10 for some reason.

Thanks. I Replaced pim.contacts with pim, now the compiler give these messages

pim.cpp: In function `void searchContacts(class PIM, int)':
pim.cpp:104: `contacts' undeclared (first use this function)

You've mismatched some brackets in line 104:

if [B]( [/B](contacts[i].firstname == name) || [B]([/B]contacts[i].lastname == name))

I've added two open-brackets.

[edit]

Replace contacts with pim.contact

I think you mean: pim.contact[B]s[/B][i]

That was helpful. I fixed the above issues, and now recieve these errors-

>>declaration of `count' shadows a parameter
You created a variable that has the same name as one of the parameters to that function. Change one of those names to something else.

>>member `contacts' is a private member of class `PIM'
Private members of a class can only be accessed by a member of that class. You are apparently attempting to access it outside the class.

pim.cpp:105: member `contacts' is a private member of class `PIM'

Well, the compiler is right. It is, I didn't notice it earlier. Remove this error by making contacts[] public in your class.

pim.cpp: In method `void Person::save(class ofstream &)':
pim.cpp:120: `street' undeclared (first use this function)

Change street to adress.street to get rid of this.

[edit too slow..]
