Item Not Found in a Binary Search

Posted 11 December 2006 - 11:01 AM

Ok, I had posted yesterday due to having import issues. Found the problem, so I am posting under a new string. I am working on a program that will eventually mimic a gui shopping cart. I want to get my import, sort and search going first. Problem now is my binary search it not finding my item #. This program is going to develop into being able to type in an item number and have a text field that will display the item descr, price and deduct the amount from inventory. Before I get to that, this is what I have. Can someone let me know if I am on the right track-- or not. Thanks.
