I keep getting some errors while trying to load my file into a structure and I don't understand what they are for or where I'm making the mistake. These are the erros I'm getting also. Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Hi reesee324,

IMO the problem is the declaration and implementation of 'loadFile' are different.

First you declare it with second paramter is of type 'struct myRecords*', but in the implementation you declare the second parameter to be of type 'struct myRecords'. Therefor the linker doesn't find the function needed.

You have to change the 'struct myRecords table' to i.e. 'struct myRecords* table' and modify the kind how this param is accessed in the function.

Hope that helps,

ZOPPO
