This is part of some class work I have to do, but this is not what I am turning in as my assignment! It does have some bugs, but as long as the user only enters an integer it runs fine.

I have included just the part of the code that I need help with. It compiles and runs through the program, but does do what I want it do.

I have 2 questions, one is how do I get the CR entered to save to the account? And the second is, once it is stored, how do I display that information? More details are in block comments in the code. I hope my question is clear.

/*Current Problems which need to be fixed:
Input account number and be able to change the account balance accordingly.
When prompted, display the account balance accordingly.

                                two times, how do I make the first CR add

                                (option 1) transactions, the first time I CR 
                                the account 5, then 10,
				so now I want the balance to say 15.*/
				goto here;
			}
			else if (choice == 8)
			{
				return (0);

			else if (choice != 1 || choice != 5 || choice != 8)

here2:	;

return 1;
}

To save the transaction you are almost there. int bal = 0; /* initialize balance to zero */ instead of bal = 0 + credit; replace for bal = bal + credit; or bal += credit; which is a shortcut.

Thank you! It is so easy to over look the simple things sometimes.
