I added the code you told me to get rid of the Error 200, instead of outputting the averages it outputs 'No candidates found'



var name: string;
    numb: integer;
    totalnumb: integer;
    wt: integer;
    totalwt: integer;
    applicants: integer;
    AppFile: text;
    avgnumb: real;
    avgwt: real;
    posit: string;

procedure GETDATA (var localAppFile: text;
                   var localname: string;
                   var localnumb: integer;
                   var localwt: integer);

  begin
    readln (localAppFile, localname);
    readln (localAppFile, localnumb);
    readln (localAppFile, localwt);
  end; {GETDATA}

procedure POSITION(var localnumb: integer;
                   localwt: integer;
                   posit: string);

    begin
      if (numb < 10) and (wt < 180) then
        begin
          writeln ('Accepted ');
          posit := 'Accepted';
        end
      else
        begin
           writeln ('Rejected ');
           writeln ('Your weight is more than the given weight ');
           writeln ('The number of cigarettes you smoke is over the limit ');
           posit := 'Not accepted';
        end;
    end; {POSITION}


procedure ACCEPTED ( posit: string;
                     localwt: integer;
                     localnumb: integer);

   begin
      if (posit = 'Accepted') then
        begin
          totalwt := localwt + totalwt;
          totalnumb := totalnumb + localnumb;
          inc(applicants);
        end;
   end;{ACCEPTED}


begin {main}
  assign (AppFile, 'A:\AppFile2.dat');
  reset (AppFile);
  while not seekeof (AppFile) do
     begin
        GETDATA (AppFile, name, numb, wt);
        POSITION (numb, wt, posit);
        ACCEPTED (posit, wt, numb);
     end;
        if applicants <> 0 then
          begin
            avgnumb := totalnumb / applicants;
            writeln ('Average number of ciagrettes for accepted applicants is ', avgnumb:6:2);
            avgwt := totalwt / applicants;
            writeln ('Average weight for accepted applicants is ' , avgwt:6:2);
          end
        else
          writeln ('No candidates found');

end.

procedure POSITION(var localnumb: integer;
                                      localwt: integer;
                                      posit: string);


to

procedure POSITION(var localnumb: integer;
                                      localwt: integer;
                                      var posit: string);

This posit is not returning with the value.  Sorry for delay.
