what is the error?

line 66: what if I enter a value of 500? Your program will blow up with that. You need to put a check in there to make sure its a value between 0 and 50.

Maybe you should put the check for j being greater than zero first. You might be trying to access a negative index. Have you printed out j to check what the value is?

nice to meet you all…….
compile time error....

@ jainny - If you are having a problem start a new thread and post what you issue is. compile time error is not enough information. You have to show your code and also what the error is.
