I'm not getting any errors but can't get the print out I should.
Any Idea's?

Pseudo code first, then Program Code, and the printout look;

Design, code and thoroughly test the following programming problem: A company pays its salespeople a base weekly salary plus a commission based on gross sales for the week. The salespeople receive \$200 per week in base salary plus 9% of their gross sales for that week. For example, a salesperson who grosses \$5,000 in sales in a week receives \$200 in base salary plus a commission of 9% of \$5,000 (\$450), or total pay of \$650 for the week.
1. Write an application that enables the user to enter a salesperson’s weekly sales and calculates and displays that salesperson’s weekly pay. In addition, the application keeps track of and displays a count of the total weekly pay of salespeople by the ranges described below;
2.1. Use descriptive identifier names that reveal the exact purpose of the variable in your program. Do not use abbreviations;
2.2. Enable the user to enter the weekly sales for each salesperson;
2.3. Display the weekly pay for the current salesperson;
2.4. Use a one-dimensional array of counters to keep track of how many of the salespeople earn weekly pay in each of the following nine ranges (assume that each salesperson’s weekly pay is truncated to an integer amount):

2.4.1. \$200 – 299;
2.4.2. \$300 – 399;
2.4.3. \$400 – 499;
2.4.4. \$500 – 599;
2.4.5. \$600 – 699;
2.4.6. \$700 – 799;
2.4.7. \$800 – 899;
2.4.8. \$900 – 999;
2.4.9. \$1,000 and over

2.5. Locate and increment the appropriate array entry counter for salesperson’s weekly pay;
2.6. Display the array of salespeople by weekly earning ranges.
2.7. Use the techniques shown in this document’s Exhibit C, Example Program Input and Output;
2.8. Follow the UML class diagram and the pseudo code shown in the document’s “Exhibit A-1” through “Exhibit B-2”;

I did some adjustment to your code(red colouring plus removed some tab characters and extra spaces) but you have to still finish it.
Now it is working trough loop, but then when you press ctrl+z it prints labels but can't get over your calculations. It will be much faster for you to check the problem then for me have go on code full of weeklyPay, weeklyPayRange etc :lol:

Good work, nice commenting (i'm in final year at uni and don't do so much ;) ) and good luck in next progress plus don't forget bracklets in for/while/while do loops or if loops if they have to do more then one process-line of code :)

Yes I see some of the errors in you showed in red, ty and I see the problem lies here:

``````//Initialize each element of the countOfWeeklyPayByRange array to zero:
[B]int[/B] countOfWeeklyPayByRange[] = {0, /* \$200-\$299 */
0, /* \$300-\$399 */
0, /* \$400-\$499 */
0, /* \$500-\$599 */
0, /* \$600-\$699 */
0, /* \$700-\$799 */
0, /* \$800-\$899 */
0, /* \$900-\$999 */
0}; /* \$1000 and over */``````

because i get duplicate local variable of
countOfWeeklyPayByRange
but I'm still working on it, and good luck in your studies as well.

commented: Few beginners mistakes, but hard working, he will learn a lot +2

Thanx dude

if you have problem drop a message, also for future try to use litle more meaningful names or you will pay for it once
