#include <iostream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;

int main()
int idnum,age,yearbirth;

yearbirth=idnum.subint (0,2);

I think you need to give an example. What's idnum? How does one determine yearbirth from idnum? idnum is an int. There's no "int" class, so the dot operator won't work.

idnum.subint (0,2)[B];[/B]

What are you trying to do here?

There's no such thing as subint to my knowledge.
Take in the ID as a string, do a substr(0,2), convert that truncated string to an integer (using atoi). There's a slight flaw in your ID scheme though since if the digits are 00-09 the person could be 100 or just born. You need to do your subtraction by adding to your year value so it gives the right age.
