My decision statement operates okay, but I'm having a difficulty time figuring out why the decision statement that control the number of trys not responding.

I can I create this?

INCLUDE Irvine32.inc
ARRAY_SIZE = 20

.data
    str1 BYTE "Enter a signed integer: ", 0
    str2 BYTE "The sum of the integers is: ", 0
    array DWORD ARRAY_SIZE DUP( ? )

    ; I code below is what I added.
    numberOfInt BYTE "How many integers will be added? ", 0
    errorMsg BYTE "Number of integer should be 20 or less!", 0dh, 0ah, 0
    exitProgramMsg BYTE "Sorry only three attempt is allowed.", 0dh, 0ah
                   BYTE "This program will now close.", 0dh, 0ah
                   BYTE "Goodbyu!", 0

.code
    main PROC
        call Clrscr
        mov esi, OFFSET array
        ;mov ecx, INTEGER_COUNT         ; Comment out this line of code to make the modification work.
        call NumberOfIntegers
        call PromptForIntegers
        call ArraySum
        call DisplaySum
        exit
    main ENDP
