Alexo,

Does this look right?  I want to assign a pointer the value of a void pointer.  The void pointer is the same structure type as the known pointer:

void PrintOwnerList(struct List *list)
{
// pointer to the ListNode head
struct ListNode *p = list->head;
// used to assign the value of void *RecordPtr
      struct Owner *OwnPtr;

//struct Owner *OwnPtr)p->RecordPtr;

      while(p){
      // assign Owner ptr the value of the void pointer
            OwnPtr = (struct Owner*)p->RecordPtr;
            printf("Last name is %s \n", OwnPtr->Last);
            // advance CurPtr to next ListNode
            p = p->next;
      }
      return;
}

Alexo's respons:

You forgot to set p->RecordPtr = DataPointer on the 1st item.

Thanks!
