Hello

I've rearranged my program so i can enter more than one word for a field and it works,, new problem is after just entering data once,, i get stuck in the menu with a loop.

tried all kinds of stuff to get out but cant.

what i want to do is :
enter 1 to enter record
then after that it goes back to the menu and from there i want to press 1 again to enter the record again

neone know how i can do this???
apreciate any help,, Thanks

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>

#define MAX 100
// Idea here is to enter an array of structures
// write them to disk and read them back


// simple structure
struct records {
	char artist[50];
	char album[50];
	char label[50];
	char year[4];
	char genre[30];
}cd[100];
	int top=0;
int filewrite(void) {
			
			int i;
			char years[4];
			char ch[2];
			for(i=top;i<1;i++)
			{
			
			printf("Press Y to Continue or N for Menu");
			gets(ch);
			printf("Enter the artist: \n");
			gets(cd[i].artist);
			printf("Enter the album: \n");
			gets(cd[i].album);
			printf("Enter label name: \n");
			gets(cd[i].label);
			printf("Enter year: \n");
			gets(cd[i].year);
			printf("Enter the genre of music: \n");
			gets(cd[i].genre);		
		}
			menu_select();
	
	top=i;
	}

	do{
	printf("\nEnter Your Choice: ");

try this

		gets(cd[i].genre);		
	}
