You've got the right idea, and you are really close. Try moving the start of the "do" block to before requesting the ISDN number but after printing the title. After you fix up your loop, we can work on the totals if you need help with that.

go for switch case rather than if-else blocks

how do you know whats in stock? do you read that info from a file? you gotta enter it by hand?

You can use the STL to simplify your exercise.

I would probably use a sorted vector of structs(or a map) with 5 members(isbn,author,title,price,num_copies_instock) to represent the stock. If you keep it sorted by isbn you will get fast searches using a binary search algorithm. Then get entry by isbn and try find it in the vector. If entry exists then add to receipt. This can be another vector. If not say something like we dont have it etc.. At end of user input receipt can be printed by iterating thru the receipt vector.

You familiar with structs? std::string? std::vector? std::map?
