I am having two problems with this code. #1) The user is to enter a three digit number for their employee ID. No problem there. But if the user enters a negative number, such as -1 the program is to end and display the total payroll for the month, total payroll is all the employees pay added together. This function also has to do error checking so the user cannot enter '1xv'. I got that part but need help with displaying when user enters a negative number.
#2) I can't seem to figure out Total Payroll to display properly, I get junk values.

#include <iostream> 
#include <iomanip>
using namespace std;
#include <string>
int getEmployeeData (string[], char[], const int, double[]);
float calculateGrossPay(string[], char[], double[], int, double[]);

bool tryAgain();
bool isValidStatus(char);
bool isValidID (string);


int main()

	const int numEmp = 4;
	string ID[numEmp];

	double grossPay[numEmp];
	double netPay[numEmp];
	double totalPayroll = 0;
	getEmployeeData(ID, pyrllSt, numEmp, grossPay);
	calculateGrossPay(ID, pyrllSt, grossPay, numEmp, netPay);

	return 0;

Stop making new threads for the same stupid question! I have a sound I'd like you to hear:

*plonk*

:sad: Hey dont get depressed by that comment. The solution is you can use exceptions. For example, you can throw an exception when the id<0 and on catching the exception display the details you need. Hope i am clear. If not tell me i will try to send you the code.

Seriously, it's called double posting, and it's not encouraged in this forum at all.
