What should I do next??
My assignment:

Assignment Background:

Billionaire Donaldio Trumpola has hired you to help him run his many businesses. He has so many staff members in so many different companies that he is losing track of them all. What he would like you to do, is write a program, that he can use to enter in the information about his companies. He will want to input the following information for each department:

Department Name:
Employees:
Cost Per Employee:
Sales:

Below is the data he would like you to enter (you didn't think he would enter it himself did you?) Write your program to handle the amount of information that needs to be inputted. You do not need to use a loop, you can simply have multiple requests to ".readLine()" .

Finally, Donaldio would like your program to use all the information inputted to find out if he has made any money, or if he is bankrupt. Calculate the cost to run each department, and compare that to the sales for the department, come up with a total, and present all your numbers in a nice output that has been formatted - using the technique you have learned in the notes - to show money with two decimal places, comma's and a dollar sign. In the output you should present the statistics for each department, and the statistic for all departments.

Here is the Data:

Department Name: Cool Casino
# of Employees: 543
Cost Per Employee: 0.75
Sales: 1000.432

Department Name: Trumpola Burgers
# of Employees: 43
Cost Per Employee: 19.725
Sales: 50

Department Name: Donoldio Clothing for Cats
# of Employees: 4.0001
Cost Per Employee: 5.233
Sales: 100

Department Name: Trumpola Leaning Tower
# of Employees: 1003
Cost Per Employee: 1.2123
Sales: 704.67

Bonus: Use a loop to ask how many departments Donaldio would like entered and then loop through that many requests!

I have written down the code:
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;

{
public static void main (String[]args) throws IOException
{
String department;
System.out.println("Department Name:");
System.out.println("Department Name: "+department);

String employees;
System.out.println("Employees:");
System.out.println("Employees: "+employees);

String cost;
System.out.println("Cost per Employee:");
System.out.println("Cost per Employee: "+cost);

String sales;
System.out.println("Sales:");
System.out.println("Sales: "+sales);
}
}

What should I do next?? I can input the information given above, however, I need to type "java Business" in order to enter the 2nd information. Can I do it within one program??

When posting code, please use the highlight tags to preserve formatting.

So, what's your question? You've dumped your assignment here, but which part is giving you trouble? I suggest reading through the java tutorial (not to mention your class notes and book) to get an idea of the kinds of control statements you have at your disposal.

Can you rephrase your question? What information? Are you using an editor to enter information into a file?

Like.... this is the right code that I can input one set of data. However, is there a way that I can input all data within one code?

Can you explain what you mean by "input all data"?
You can have the program ask many questions of the user and read his responses into variables in the program.

This is the third time you're simply dumping your homework assignment here. Stop doing that.

I highly recommend you read the link in my signature on asking questions the smart way, then provide an SSCCE and ask a specific question.

Further homework dumps will get you banned.
