you have 17 posts, and haven't figured out code tags

Use code tags.

You have given us nothing to go on here, does the compiler throw errors at you? Is the output wrong or not what you expected?

Remember, a decent question gives a decent answer.

first of, include stringstream library.

sort-function cannot use swap-function because it hasn't been declared before its called.\

and finally, indexing your itemlist-array like this

Item1[i].unitPrice[j];

will not work. For every item in your list there is only one unitPrice.
