What does the program not do that you want it to do? What are the errors? We are not here to debug and fix errors in your program, but to help you do it yourself. But before we can do that you have to know what te problems are.

Sorry. I forgot to mention what I want. The error is '==' : no conversion from 'int' to 'char *' and illegal else without matching if.

Use Code tags

``````else if (item == 'A')
money =number *itemA;
cout << "Your total is \$" << money;``````

should be

``````else if (item == 'A'){
money =number *itemA;
cout << "Your total is \$" << money;
}``````

that is

``````if(....){
//=============
}
else if(...){
//==========
}
else if(...){
//=============
}
else{
//============
}``````

I fixed { } this part, but I still had a problem with '==' : no conversion from 'int' to 'char *'. What is wrong with my code?

``````char item, code[5];

else if (item == 'A')
{
cout << "Enter the passcode: ";
cin>>code;

if (code == 'DISC')
{
money =number *itemA* 0.8;
cout << "Your total is \$" << money<< endl;
}
else
{
money = number * itemA;
cout << "Your total is \$" << money << endl;
}
``````

1. USE CODE TAGS!!!!!
