    Default Re: Help: Insert , Delate, Display in my project

    The first question I'd ask is, "To what are you adding the user's input?" The answer should be, "To some kind of collection of objects that describe each data item." Your program doesn't have the data item class or the collection in which to store objects of that class, so you need to add them. The data object might be a String stored in an ArrayList<String> at the index specified by the "Code", or you could create your own class to store the data value, Code, and any/all of the conversions.

    The conversion methods you've shown are doing too much. Based on the sample run you've shown, the user enters one data value, not an Integer or a Decimal, or a ?. So your program should accept the data value in a common format in one place, store it, and then calculate the conversions on that value. This approach should require only one Scanner object for the whole program, not the several you are currently creating.

    I see you're new at using methods, not quite sure what a method should do, when to use a new one, etc. A general rule of thumb is that a method should do exactly one thing, do it very well, and the one thing the method does should be described by the method's name.

    Refactor your program some and come back when you're ready to move forward. Good luck, and keep coding!
