i am working on this program for a while need some help/input/miracle....

#include <fstream>

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

class Report

	ifstream & get();

};

Report::Report()

		exit(1);
	}
}

void Report::read_input()
{ 
	in_file.getline(id, 12);
	in_file.getline(name, 20);
	in_file>>midterm>>f1>>p1>>p2>>cp;
	in_file.get();
}

int Report::calc_grade()
{
	int course_grade;

	course_grade = (int)((midterm*0.25)+(f1*0.25)+(p1*0.20)+(p2*0.20)+(cp*0.10));

	return course_grade;
}

	s1.read_input();
	
	while (!read_file.eof())
	{

		s1.display_result (letter, grade);
		s1.read_input();

		cout<<setw(3)<<letter<<setw(3)<<grade<<endl;
	}
return 0;
}

this is the error message:

Comments
for using code tags on first post :)

ok great thx

still getting an error message:

Instead of posting all your errors, why don't you try reading the error, look at the line in your code, then correct the error. The error message for line 109 is very explicit -- look at the parameters passed on that line then look at the function declaration in the class. There is obviously a difference.

i did play around with it believe me i just cannot find the problem i changed stuff around etc. it just does not work. Please understand i am new to this.

I compiled the code you posted and did not get that error. Instead I got a link error stating that you did not code the function called print_heading().

line 59: using an uninitialized variable. You need to just delete that variable and all references to it. Replace course_grade with grade (from the function parameter).
