I am currently doing a project on a membership data base, using pascal, as part of a higher education course.
Everything seems to work apart from the delete.
After entering members details I can delete them from the screen, but when
the program is switched off and turned back on again the deleted information is back in the lists. I suspect that when switching the program off the data is some how saved. I've noticed that when using delete the A:\ drive where the files stored, does not light up.
I'm using pointers, the delete is for membership and competition details ( two different files )
Have used the DISPOSE(.....) to delete, but I have not Assgined them to the 'A' DRIVE, DO I need to do this??
When using POINTERS, if so where ??
As I've said, the file gets removed from the screen while in use, but once the program is turned off it seems to read it back to the 'A' DRIVE. Therefore, when the program is restarted all the removed files are reinstated.
Therefore I would be grateful for some expert help, as I am complete beginner at programming.
Hope to hear from someone soon, best wishes,
