    Question How to create a menu for the user which add new parts,search existing parts and display the table to view all in Java?

    In this assignment we are to create a two dimensional array to do the following
    1. Create a menu for the user to add new parts (without duplicating or leaving any fields blank)
    2. Search for exiting parts using Plain Wrap as the reference point
    3. Populate the table for the user to view all
    Below is my code, and it won't add the new part numbers or allow me to search or display the table with all the parts.

    I'm sure i'm forgetting a couple of easy things here, but i've been working on this for the last few hours. Help me keep my sanity!!!

    Thanks in advance!!
