# Multi-Dimensional Arrays task

Posted 19 November 2012 - 10:52 AM

Hello i have tried and tried and tried but i cant figure out to generate this table of information.

I have tried an array I'm a beginner in C++ and i cant figure out how to do this. Its overwhelming me to the point im getting sick to my stomach.

Heres my code:

```#include <iostream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;

int main ()
{
// an array with 24 rows and 13 columns.
int a[24][13] = {                   {0,0},  {0,1},  {0,2},  {0,3},  {0,4},  {0,5},  {0,6},  {0,7},   {0,8},  {0,9},  {0,10},  {0,11},  {0,12},  {0,13},
{0,1},  {1,1},  {1,2},  {1,3},  {1,4},  {1,5},  {1,6},  {1,7},   {1,8},  {1,9},  {1,10},  {1,11},  {1,12},  {1,13},

// output each array element's value
a[0][0] = {"Customer Number"}
a[0][1] = 1520000000
a[0][2] = 1520000001
a[0][3] = 1520000002
a[0][4] = 1520000003
a[0][5] = 1520000004
a[0][6] = 1520000005
a[0][7] = 1520000006
a[0][8] = 1520000007
a[0][9] = 1520000008
a[0][10] = 1520000009
a[0][11] = 1520000010
a[0][12] = 1520000011
a[0][13] = 1520000012
a[0][14] = 1520000013
a[0][15] = 1520000014
a[0][16] = 1520000015
a[0][17] = 1520000016
a[0][18] = 1520000017
a[0][19] = 1520000018
a[0][20] = 1520000019
a[0][21] = 1520000020
a[0][22] = 1520000021
a[0][23] = 1520000022
a[0][24] = 1520000023

return 0;
}

```

It is saying it they are too much initializations, and alot of other errors that stop it

Are you planning to use this array to hold the information in your pdf file?

Have you studied structures yet?

And what is the relationship between your code and the PDFs you attached?

First arrays in C/C++ can only hold one type of data. I suggest you use an array of a structure to hold the information. Also most of your information should probably be treated as strings. The only actual number I see in your .pdf is the previous reading. The other information I would use strings to hold the data, in my opinion, because of the size of these "numbers" it would be error prone to try using a numeric value to hod these items.

How do you do a array of a structure?

Can someone get me started?

I tried doing this but i cant figure out how to get it to work:

```#define Width 12
#define Height 25
int ElectricService [Height][Width];
const string ElectricService [][1] = {"Customer Number", "Account Number", "Service Type", "Meter Number","Read Type", "Previous Read Date", "Previous Reading", "Present Read Date", "Present Reading", "No. of Days", "Monthly Usage", "Multiplier", "Billed Usage"};
int n,m;

int main ()
{
for (n=1520000000;n<25;n++)
for (m=0;m<12;m++)
{
ElectricService[12][25]=(n+1)*(m+1);
}
return 0;
}
```

Show your code where you tried to use a structure. Then perhaps someone can help you with your problems.
