My current homework assignment is to code a mortgage calculator that will allow the user to input the appropriate information and return the monthly payment, the interest paid and the principal paid. An amortization schedule for the entire lenghth of the loan is also required.

I have managed to get my loop counter to step through each month for the entire life of the loan. My problem is that instead of the program also stepping through each payment, it repeats the same payment information and balance for the complete loan. The balance is never decreased by the amount of each montly payment. I have traced the problem down to something in my loop counter. My problem is that I cannot find what in my loop counter is wrong. all my math calcuations are correct and the montly payment is accurate. So I believe the problem has to be in my loop. I just need some help finding it. I have enclosed my code. Please bear in mind that even though i have placed my code in the proper code tags some of the formating may still be off.
