“Write a C++ program (use multi-dimensional arrays) that uses an array structures (size 8) to store the following information on a company’s 8 divisions:

Division name (such as East, West, North, South, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest)

First Quarter sales
Second quarter sales
Third quarter sales
Fourth Quarter Sales
Fourth Quarter sales
Total annual sales
Average quarterly sales

Each array element should contain all information about one of the eight divisions (East, West, North, etc.). The user should be asked for the four quarters’ sales figures for each division. (You are allowed to store user input data in an input file, if you wish). Each division’s total and average sales should be calculated and stored in the appropriate member field. Once all data are filled, print a report to a file displaying all information for all 8 divisions.

NB. Print your report in descending order of Average quarterly sales.
Do not allow the user to input negative values for any of the sales figures.”

Good day: I have a lot of things going on here...i'm lost...I'm getting compiler errors such as:

1. error C2065: 'ofsttream' : undeclared identifier
2. error C2275: 'Comp' : illegal use of this type as an expression
3. error C2228: left of '.name' must have class/struct/union
4. error C2275: 'Comp' : illegal use of this type as an expression
5. error C2036: 'Comp []' : unknown size
There are too many errors for me to list. But can you see what I'm doing wrong?

Thank you and have a good day.
5.

Since my professor say I should "break" out of an "for" loop....what is my alternative?

Since my professor say I SHOULD NOT "break" out of an "for" loop....what is my alternative?

What additional declaration should i give to Comp...but it's an array, or how else could I use 'Comp'.

First, look carefully at the compiler errors, and correct spelling/typing mistakes (I see at least one!)

Second, where is your struct definition..? (Perhaps you need to read up on how to create a struct)

Ok, thx bench, i'll repost my code inna few...imma do sone reading up some more on the struct.

How about something like this:

I'm getting brain freeze....any help is apprecited and also to tidy-up the program...

>>“Write a C++ program (use multi-dimensional arrays) that uses an array structures

Where have you declared the structure ? and where did you declare the array? You need a structure something like this:

struct company
{
    std::string company_name;
    long Quarter_sales[4];
    long Total_annual_sales;
    long Average_quarterly_salesl
};

lines 45 and 46: Divisions and Quarters should be combined into one structure something similar to what I posted above.

lines 148-155: delete those variables. The calculations should be stored in the structure members not in simple individual int objects.

lines 193-199: That should be sorting the array of the structures similar to what I posted above. Sorting an array that only contains the averages will not give you what you want because it doesn't keep the other information in the same order. Putting everything in a structure similar to what I posted previously and sorting that array solves that problem very easily.

So pretty much, the assignment is as above, except that for the fact that i'm required to use arrays.

OMG! what did you do in lines 10 thru 35? Delete all that crap and use arrays of structures as your assignment told you to do and as I explained in my previous post.

Thanks...I didn't post it as the assignment, i simply did it as an alternative to see if we had accomplished the same thing...but i'll post the code with the arrays structures soon. Where in this program could i use functions?

This is the code i came up with:
1. How can i use this same code, but use functions?
2. I get errors when i try to compile it
3. How can I print my report in descending order of Average quarterly sales.
Thank you and have a good day.

>How can i use this same code, but use functions?


Functions are most commonly used for parts of the code which get repeated. Decide which parts would benefit from functions and put them there.

>How can I print my report in descending order of Average quarterly sales.

Basically create a sort routine but sort by the attribute in the structure.

This question has already been answered. Start a new discussion instead.
