Re: error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'string'
I suggested that you go through your program line-by-line with the debugger. The reason why is that you need to understand exactly how a program works, how variables are set, how a loop operates, etc. etc. Otherwise you will be right back to square one with your next assignment, asking us or some other person the same basic questions on how a program works, how a function works, how an if() statement works, etc.

Once you have the necessary skills as a C++ programmer to have confidence in knowing how code will flow and what the various constructs will do, do you then take shortcuts by setting breakpoints and such.
