this is wht i attempted lastly...
i have display the respective months with days using switch statement

1. Next time use code tag:
[code=c++] source

[/code]

2. Alas, you forgot (;)) that case labels are constant expressions of integral (for example, an integer 123 or a single char 'x') or enumeration type. You can't type enumeration constants directly because no overloaded >> operator for enumerations.

Input text string then select month name by if statement cascade:

string month;
...
cin >> month;
int days;
if (month == "january")
    days = 31;
else if (month == "february") {
    // How about leap years?
    ...
} else if (....)
...
else { // Bad month name

}
...

3. Place system header include diectives in stdafx.h compiler generated files:

/// stdafx.h
...
#include <iostream>
#include <string>
...

Don't include them in your .cpp files. That's why you have #include "stdafx.h" VC++ compiler generated directive.
