Hi can anyone tell me how to get the region sales to calculete the whole 8 inputs? What it seems is happening is the a integer is repeating untill 8 but that the program stops at 8 and only adds the first 7. If I put repeat untill a > 8 then it still asks for the 9th region although it does calculate the first 8 which is what I want it to do.
program regions;

var

a:integer;
region_sales, total_sales:real;

procedure init;
begin
region_sales := 0.0;
total_sales := 0.0;
a := 0;
end;

procedure get_sales;
begin
writeln ('Please enter sales for region ',a);
end;

procedure print_sales;
begin
writeln ('The sales for all regions were ',total_sales:6:2);
end;

begin
init;
repeat

a := a + 1;
total_sales := total_sales + region_sales;
get_sales;
until a = 8;
print_sales;

end.

Thanks for any help

Oh yeah and I tried using the while statement (while total_sales > 9 do) but that keeps asking me for the 9th region before calculating the first 8 too.

You need to place your call to get_sales before the line that adds the region_sales to the total. HTH

Oh that's wild! Thanks for your reply! That works but I can't believe I didn't see that lol. I hope you answer my next question although I do want to learn it myself but my syntax is so bad. Thanks again

Hi can anyone give me any hints as in how to add 4 quarters to this code? I would prefer it to say region 1 1st quarter region 2 second quarter then up to region 8 4th quarter but i don't know how to get the quarter loops? Thanks for any idea

If you just want to track totals use an array like:
[code]
total_sales : array[1..4,1..8] of real;
[/code]
You will then need to use nested loops to go thru the array as:
[code]
for i:=1 to 4 do
for j:=1 to 8 do //blah blah
[/code]
If you decide to keep adding information you might want to consider learning about records. HTH
