ERE IS THE PROCEDURE I NEED HELP WITH.

[1] I NEED TO ASK FOR A CUSTOMER NUMBER AND THEN SEARCH  THE FILE CUSFILE,CUSTOMER.DAT     WHERE THE INFO IS STORED THE DISPLAY APPROPRIATE INFO i.e. name address. . then store it to orderfile.

[2] THE CUSFILE,CUSTOMER.DAT WERE MADE USING THE SAME FORMAT AS THIS, I CAN SCROLL THROUGH THE RECORDS BUT CAN'T PICK OUT INDIVIDUAL ONES IN A SEARCH.


        PROCEDURE Order;

        type
         ORDER    = record
                           GETDATE  ;
         CUST_NUM         :INTEGER;                    
         CUST_NAME        : string[20];
         CUST_address     : string[40];
         COSTUME_NUMBER   :INTEGER;
         COSTUME_DESC     :STRING;
         QUANTITY         :INTEGER;
         LOH              :STRING;
         RETURNDATE       :STRING;
         DELIVERY         :CHAR;

               end;

var
   ORDERFILE : file of ORDER;
   c : char;
   X : ORDER;

   n : integer;
begin




   assign(ORDERFILE,'ORDER.DAT');           { Associate it }
   {$I-}
      reset(ORDERFILE);           { First, open it }
   {$I+}

   n:=IOResult;
   if n<>0 then           { If it's doesn't exist then }
   begin
      {$I-}
         rewrite(ORDERFILE);      { Create it    }
      {$I+}
      n:=IOResult;
      if n<>0 then
      begin
         writeln('Error creating file !'); halt;
      end;
   end
   else
   begin                  { If it exists then }
      n:=filesize(ORDERFILE);     { Calculate total record }
      seek(ORDERFILE,N);          { Move file pointer PAST the last record }
   end;

   repeat

      writeln('File position : ',filepos(ORDERFILE));
      WRITELN;
      WRITELN;
      write('DATE IS              = '); readln(X.DATE);     { Input data }
      write('CUSTOMER NUMBER      = '); readln(number);
      ???

      write('CUSTOMER NAME IS     = '); readln(X.CUST_NAME);
      write('CUSTOMER ADRESS IS   = '); readln(x.cust_address);
      write('ENTER COSTUME NUMBER = '); READLN(x.COSTUME_NUMBER);
      WRITE('COSTME DESC IS       = '); READLN(X.COSTUME_DESC);
      WRITE('ENTER QUANTITY       = '); READLN (X.QUANTITY);
      WRITE('LOH                  = '); READLN(X.LOH);
      WRITE('RETURN DATE          = '); READLN(X.RETURNDATE);
      WRITE('DELIVERY Y OR N      = '); READLN(X.DELIVERY);



      write(ORDERFILE,X);                 { Write data to file }

      write('Input data again (Y/N) ?');
      repeat
         c:=upcase(readkey);      { Ask user : Input again or not }
      until c in ['Y','N'];
      writeln(c);
   until c='N';

   close(ORDERFILE);
end;

END.

procedure lastwait;
begin
     writeln;
     write('Press any key to continue....');
     readkey;
end;

procedure  create_customer_database;
var   A_file : file of customer;
      cust : customer;
      c : char;
begin
      assign(A_file,'CUSTOMER.DAT');

            c:=readkey;
      until c in ['n','N'];
      close(A_file);
end;
