I need help with this code to :

a. Creating an array of employees
b. Asking the user how many employees records does he want to enter.
c. Modifying the input_data function to take the data of all employees and fill them in the array
d. Modifying the output_data function to display the records of all employees.

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;
void output_data(struct database*data_ptr);
void input_data(struct database*data_ptr);
struct database {
int id_number;
int age;
float salary;
string name;
};
int main()
{
struct database employee;
struct database* sp;
sp = &employee;
input_data(sp);
output_data(sp);
return 0 ;
}
void output_data(struct database*data_ptr)
{
cout << "*********************************\n";
cout << "name = " << data_ptr->name << "\n";
cout << "id_num = " << data_ptr->id_number << "\n";
cout << "age = " << data_ptr->age << "\n";
cout << "salary = " << data_ptr->salary << "\n";
cout << "*********************************\n";
}
void input_data(struct database*data_ptr)
{
int i_tmp;
float f_tmp;
string s_tmp;
cout<<"enter name:";
cin >>s_tmp;data_ptr->name = s_tmp;
cout << "enter id_number :";
cin >> i_tmp;data_ptr->id_number = i_tmp;
cout << "enter age :";
cin >> i_tmp;data_ptr->age = i_tmp;
cout << "enter salary:";
cin >> f_tmp;data_ptr->salary = f_tmp;;
cout<<endl;
}
int main()
{
   database *employee ;
   cin >> n ;
   employee = new int[n] ;
   for ( int i = 0 ; i  < n ; i++)
       input_data(employee+i);
   for ( int i = 0 ; i  < n ; i++)
       output_data(employee+i);
}

EDIT:
Also Use code tags properly. Like [code=cpp] and not just [code].
Intend your code for better readability.

Edited 3 Years Ago by Dani: Formatting fixed

Prabakar can u integrate it in my code plz cuz i get alot of errors and i donno how to resolve it

oops sorry. Should have tested the code before posting it.
heres the code

#include <iostream>
#include <string>

using namespace std;

struct database {
  int id_number, age;
  float salary;
  string name;
};

void output_data(struct database*data_ptr)
{
  cout << "*********************************\n";
  cout << "name = " << data_ptr->name << "\n";
  cout << "id_num = " << data_ptr->id_number << "\n";
  cout << "age = " << data_ptr->age << "\n";
  cout << "salary = " << data_ptr->salary << "\n";
  cout << "*********************************\n";
}
void input_data(struct database*data_ptr)
{
  int i_tmp;
  float f_tmp;
  string s_tmp;
  cout<<"enter name:";
  cin >>s_tmp;data_ptr->name = s_tmp;
  cout << "enter id_number :";
  cin >> i_tmp;data_ptr->id_number = i_tmp;
  cout << "enter age :";
  cin >> i_tmp;data_ptr->age = i_tmp;
  cout << "enter salary:";
  cin >> f_tmp;data_ptr->salary = f_tmp;;
  cout<<endl;
}
int main()
{
   database *employee ;
   [B]int n;[/B]
   cin >> n ;
   employee = new [B]database[/B][n] ;
   for ( int i = 0 ; i  < n ; i++)
       input_data(employee+i);
   for ( int i = 0 ; i  < n ; i++)
       output_data(employee+i);
}

i got a list of errors which are

For some reason the [/ b] tags did not work. Cant you at least remove it?
Did you really do that program?
