Im getting these two errors, here is the whole code besides the edits and i know the edits works so their not important here.

Error 6 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "int __cdecl loadArray(class std::basic_string<char,struct std::char_traits<char>,class std::allocator<char> > const (* const)[2])" (?loadArray@@YAHQAY01$$CBV?$basic_string@DU?$char_traits@D@std@@V?$allocator@D@2@@std@@@Z) referenced in function _main Q6_A1_CODE.obj
Error 7 fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals C:\Users\HomePC\Desktop\Q6_assignment1\Debug\Q6_assignment1.exe

can someone tell me what im getting the errors for?

Function prototype:
int loadArray(const string[][2]);

Function definition:
int loadArray(string secArray[][2])

Not the same signatures!
Do you really need/want the const qualifier in the prototype?

Very very helpful A++++

i think thats what my professor wants but ill review my notes and if not ill take both out. thx very much that helped me a whole lot now i can finally move on :)

I think you're missing my point. In your prototype, you have the parameter as const string[][2] and in the function definition as string[][2] - the only difference is the use of const. As the function name indicates it should be modifying the array, you don't want to put the const in the prototype.

Everything is running smoothly and, i removed the const within my prototype because you was right. while using the const i wouldn't be able to change the value later on! :) much appreciated..... later
