The program was described in my previous post. It allows you to add, edit delete entry texts from a .cvs text file.

The student.cvs file contains the following text entries:

2009-1234, Asa, Gohan, Gogo
2009-4321, Basha, Bushum, jujog
2009-1999, Mekemi, Mekeke, Makeke

The error is in line 394. It's a bit confusing as if where could be the problem. I kept checking and revising but to no avail. Can anyone point out a few? Thanks.

You need to properly align your columns!

Here's an example of two else's that you missed because they were hidden by improper file alignment!

else if(check_name == CANCEL)
								{
									fclose(ptr);
									StudMenu();
									break;
								}
								else
								{
									check_name = 0;
entermiddlename:
									fflush(stdin);
									printf("Enter student middle name: ");
									gets(a_mname);
									check_name = BlankCatch(a_mname);
									
									if (check_name == FALSE)
									{
//@										check_name = 0;
										check_name = NameCatch(a_mname);
										
										if (check_name == ERROR)
										{
											error(error05);
											getch();
											goto entermiddlename;
										}
										else if(check_name == CANCEL)
										{
											fclose(ptr);
											StudMenu();
											break;
										}
										else
										{
											printf("Student record successfully added\n");
											break;                                                    	      
										}
									}

Thanks for responding...
Sorry for it, I was having trobule aligning them. By the way, can you point out where I missed out those 2 else's?

Ok I solved the problem, thanks for everyone's tips. I just inserted a "}" at lin 393 and vola....

Anyway imma post another query regarding my other functions.
