heya, i am working on this program wonderig anyone can help me finish it .

i put in most of the //info on whats suppose to happen but am having trouble figuring out actually how to.

*Program Description:  This program is designed to insert numbers into
 *   an array in ascending order.  After the numbers have been inserted
 *   the user will have the option to display the numbers back to the 
 *   screen in either ascending or descending order.  A function will 
 *   be used to insert the number into the correct position in the 
 *   array.  Another function will be used to display the numbers back
 *   to the screen.

I'm not sure you ever define the function array_insert(), I don't see it defined anywhere, nor do you actually put any values into it. I'm not that good with c++ yet, but that's the first problem I see. Just my thoughts.

line 48: you must specify a data type, such as int Array[ARRAY_SIZE]; line 50: You need to specify data type here too.

line 55: remove that semicolon at the end of the line.

line 56: Need opening brace {. Add closing } at the end of the loop.

line 61 and 62: Delete them because they are not needed.

line 64: That is not calling the function -- that is just a function prototype.

There are probably other problems, such fix the above, recompile, and report if you still have questions.

Thank you for replys made some adjustments but still need help. I am going to edit it after posting so i can say specific lines.

line 115- i am still not calling the function corectly, what is the correct way?
line 120 - what function am i calling??

 *  adding 1. Then the direction is determined (forward or reverse) so 
 *  that the array position counter can be incremented or decremented
 *  by 1. Lastly, a for loop is executed to display the contents of 
 *  the array in the correct order.

line 42: void main() main always always returns an int -- never void. The only acceptable way to code it is int main() or int main(int argc, char* argv[]).

line 115: The way you call a function is by putting variable names as the two parameters. What you have posted is a function prototype, and all it does is tell the compiler what type of parameters the function should have. Look at line 157, the actual function. That will tell you what parameters to pass on line 115.

If you are still confused about how to pass parameters then read one of the many tutorials on the net, for example this one.
