I am writing a program for a college assignment to compute grades of students. the code compiles ok, but i keep getting a runtime error 2. can anyone help?

I changed the filein:filetype; to fileIn:file; and now i get a runtime error 106...im completely lost...any help?

Is this a compiler error message?
Then 2:Identifier expected,106:Character expression expected

Yes it is a compiler message. and i changed the file. but im still lost.

ok,calm down a bit....now we know where the problem is,right..?...
run your program and look at the line where stops the program
and please paste that line,cause I can't run your program because of missing files...I hope that you understand what I'm talking about....

Error 2: Identifier expected.

I found this error when reading your code
procedure read_record;
begin
if not Eof(fileIn) then
readln(fileIn,SECTION_NUMBER,STUDENT_ID,LAST_NAME,FIRST_NAME,RAW_SCORE)
else
more_records := False
end;

By the way when I looking your code a bit closer I can't find any records ...why???
Create a new type 'something = record',got it?
I made a skeleton

Program Solution;


{new type for a student,it contains the data of a student}
Type Stdnt = Record
                   SECTION_NUMBER:string[5];
                       STUDENT_ID:string[9];
                        LAST_NAME:string[20];
                       FIRST_NAME:string[10];
                        RAW_SCORE:real;
                End;
Var FileIn:File of Stdnt;{declares a file that contains only records}
    OneStudent:Stdnt; {one record}


Procedure read_record;
Begin
   If Not EoF(FileIn) Then Readln(FileIn,OneStudent)
Else
   more_records := False
End;  {read record}
{
After calling this procedure,the OneStudent record is filled
with data like : just example....
OneStudent.SECTION_NUMBER := '12';
OneStudent.STUDENT_ID :='3';
OneStudent.LAST_NAME := 'Joe';
OneStudent.FIRST_NAME := 'Smith';
OneStudent.RAW_SCORE := 12.32;
and you have to work with the OneStudent record
}


Begin {main}


   ReadLn;
End.
