    Can you ask some specific questions about the problems you are having with the project?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    You're not a good communicator, so you should work on that. You've attempted some of those requirements, maybe all of them. Some of your code and the results may be correct, some/all may not. We need to know specifically what you want help with. We won't work with a Christmas wish list of contributions we can make to your project so that it's an aroe2013/JPF group effort.

    I'll give you one hint I see you could use after reading ~20 lines of code: yes/no conditions are usuallly set with boolean "flags."

    I disagree GregBannon, I am actually a great communicator, except when it comes to programming and what people are looking for, specifically. I apologize if you think i'm making a "wish list" I came here for help, with Java programming, which this forum is for. I do not know how to make the cod for the "wish list" above. As I stated above, I know every little about programming, so im struggling with what I need to do.

    Thank you for your hint, I will look at my code and attempt to make the changes.

    btw, what is the JPF you mentioned in your post?

    Then apply those skill to your posts to describe what help you need; make them more like your last one.

    JPF = this forum.

    Start with the first one:

    ◦Enter if returning customer (must enter y or n)


    What steps does the code need to do for that step?
    For example:
    1) show a message
    2 read the users response
    3) verify the response is correct
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
