# Array out of bounds? Really lost here...

Posted 28 October 2010 - 12:17 PM

Hello, I have the following predicament..A 2d array which has 3 employees let's say, in each employee, there is an array of 5 elements, Sales,Quota,Taxes,TotalEarnings and NetEarnings. a lot of exceptions are required, and are implemented and explained in comments. but I am always getting "Array out of bounds on line X", every line that gives this error, has [j + 4].. isn't j + 4 supposed to mean the fifth cell? I'm really desperate here, thank you very much in advance!

for (int j = 0; j < (Salesp[i].length) - 3; j++)

So in your case of 5 elements, j goes from 0 up to but not including (5 - 3), in other words, from 0 to 1.

Then you have this:

Salesp[i][j + 4] = Salesp[i][j] - Salesp[i][j + 2];

so second time round the loop, j = 1, and j + 4 = 5. Since the array is zero-indexed, it contains 5 elements numbered 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4.

5 > 4, hence array index out of bounds.

I think your logic is wonky when building that for loop in the first place, though.

The problem is the display loop. You don't offset into the second dimension of the array but use it's contents directly:

The same would be true for the earlier loops. The second dimension has a fixed size so you want to directly index it.

for (int i = 0; i < Salesp.length; i++) { s += "The taxes of Salesperson #" + (i + 1) + " are : " + Salesp[i][2] + "." + " Their Total Earnings are : " + Salesp[i][3] + "." + " And their Net Earnings are : " + Salesp[i][4] + ".\n"; }

The same would be true for the earlier loops. The second dimension has a fixed size so you want to directly index it.
