Thanks for any help. Most of this works, but I get a compiler error on lines 60, 84, and 105, where it says

current = currentStore->link

The error reads "assignment from incompatible pointer type" It runs, but in the printStores function when i gets incremented on line 81 it changes from 0 to 3 (debug watch) instead of 1 and then it only prints the first store and exits the for loop. I'd appreciate any help I can get. I already asked my teacher and she told me it looks right. I've tried on 1 linux and two windows computers with the same result.

The problem is (I think) in how you define the structure

typedef struct
{
    int storeNumber;
    char storeName[STORE_NAME_SIZE];
    char phoneNumber[STORE_PHONE_SIZE];
    struct STORE *link;
}STORE;

at line 6, you have no type struct STORE. You have a defined type STORE and an unnamed structure.

if you did this

typedef struct store_t
{
    int storeNumber;
    char storeName[STORE_NAME_SIZE];
    char phoneNumber[STORE_PHONE_SIZE];
    struct STORE *link;
}STORE;

Then you would have a defined type STORE and a structure named store_t or type struct store_t then

struct store_t* ptr1;
STORE* ptr2;

would be equivilent.

No you need to alter line 14 of your code listing, it still does not refer to a defined type.

Thank you for the help, I was able to fix the compiler errors, but was still having trouble getting my link (next) set right when adding to the end of the list, but I finally figured it out. Thanks again!
