    PLEASE DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED BY THE SIZE OF MY CODE, I BELIEVE THE PROBLEM IS VERY SIMPLE AND IT IS MARKED WITH /*ERROR*/. when i run the exe, i can add 2 patients easily to the file. then i try to display them. it displays the first one just fine, but the second it tries to display the first value in the [1]th element of the array, i get an error message. that part of my code is marked with a /*ERROR*/ just before it. easy to find plz help this is due monday. if u can solve my problem then just give me a jpeg and will erect a 500 meter idol of worship in your image.

    heres my code
    Code:

    yo someone just gave me a hint but they were a little unspecific, he said "it probably didnt clean the buffer between READING the 1st file and inputing the SECOND file"
    so how do i do that? FFLUSH(STDIN);? system("cls");?

    its also interesting that "numread" returns a zero on the first patient and a 1 on the 2nd patient
    heres my code
