Welcome to DaniWeb. This looks very much like a homework assignment, which our members will be happy to help you with but not actually complete for you. So to move forward, you need to let us know exactly where you are having difficulties with your code (and you should share your code with us so we can see where the problem is) and what you don't understand...
