    Default What am I missing?

    My code compiles and runs, but it doesn't execute as many times as I need it to. I need it to ask for input 12 times (for each month). What am I missing? Here's the code:

    [/highlight = Java]
    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class HighestTemp {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);

    System.out.println("Enter the temperature for the month:");
    double highestValue = in.nextDouble();
    int highestMonth = 1;
    for (int currentMonth = 2; currentMonth <= 12; currentMonth++) {
    double nextValue = in.nextDouble();
    if (nextValue > highestValue) {
    highestValue = nextValue;
    highestMonth = currentMonth;

    }
    System.out.println("The highest value is: " + highestValue +
    " and the month of the highest value is: " + highestMonth);

    }
    }
    }
    [/highlight]

    Thanks for any help!!!

    I need it to ask for input 12 times
    Your code is only asking for input once (before the start of the for loop). If you want or intend it to ask multiple times you had better have it also - or instead - ask within the body of the for loop.

    Why does your for loop start at 2? Going from 2 to 12 will only ask for input 11 times.

    This mainly reflects the loop that was in my textbook, with the start point at 2. Didn't make any sense to me either, but someone in another forum said my problem was that the bottom S.o.p was inside my loop. After removing it from the loop, it worked. Thanks anyway guys!
