hi, I'm working on an exercise, i did a lot of work already and i just can't figure where I'm going wrong, this is what I'm trying to achieve

please help me see where I'm going wrong.

Edited 3 Years Ago by mike_2000_17: Fixed formatting

tons of unformatted code, no description of what "goes wrong", no nothing.
You'll have to do better than that if you expect us to fix the code you pulled from some other website for you, kid.

could you put the code between [ CODE] [ /CODE] tags to make it more readable and also give the errors you are getting? might make it a lot easier to actually help you out with this one

hi again, sorry I did not give enough information,
when i compile, I get about 70 lines of errors saying "enum expected" what i really have trouble with is letting the user enter all the information. I'm also having trouble writing a suitable delete() method....the one in my code is from my textbook example, actualy almost of all the code...all I really need is how do let the user enter all the data and do I need an array for (studentNumber and name)?..I'm a bit frustrated now.
