    Default I need help with my java program for college

    I do not know how to make the loop end. I think there is an issue with my second and thrid algorithms... Someone please help..
    Also its a commission calculator

    --- Update ---

    //Start Program
    package commission;
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class Commission
    {

    private static boolean saleTargetrange;

    public static void main(String[] args) {

    {
    Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(System.in);

    double salary = 50000.00; // Yearly Salary
    double commissionRate = 0.05; // Commision @ 5%
    double bigcommissionRate = 0.065; // Commission at 6.5%
    double sales = 0;
    double goalSales = 96000; //
    double commision = commissionRate * sales;
    double totalPay = salary + commision ; // Total salary with commision
    double salesTarget = 120000; // Gaol to get commission increase.
    saleTargetrange = 96000 <= 120000;
    double maxSales;
    double saleTargetrate = sales * bigcommissionRate; // set sales comminssion
    boolean exit = true;
    int currentNumber = 0; // the number that will be converted to
    String name; // person that made the money


    {

    --- Update ---

    /**
    * Enter name and display a greeting message...
    */
    System.out.println("Hello Welcome To The Commission Calculator:");// greating message
    System.out.print( "Please enter Name:" ); // name of User
    name = keyboard.nextLine();



    /**
    * Yearly Salary
    */
    System.out.print( "Your Base Salary is: $");
    System.out.println(salary);

    /**
    * Entering sales
    */
    System.out.print( "Please enter your sales: $" );
    sales = keyboard.nextInt() ;
    System.out.print("Your sales Commissions are: $");
    /**
    * Loop starts here
    */
    }

    if(sales < goalSales) // Sales less than 80% of target
    {
    System.out.print("Your sals Commission is: $");
    System.out.println(0.00);
    System.out.println(" You Did Not Meet The Criteria To Earn A Commission.");
    System.out.println("Better Luck Next Time.");
    System.out.print("Your total Salary IS: ");
    System.out.println(salary);

    }
    // If true I need to end program here if not carry on to the next loop
    else
    {
    if(sales >= salesTarget) // Sales greater than the 80% but less than 120k

    System.out.print("Your Sales Commission is 0.05: $");
    System.out.println(sales * commissionRate);
    System.out.print("Your Total Earnings are: $");
    System.out.println(sales * commissionRate + salary);

    }
    // If true I need to end program here if not carry on to the next loop

    {
    if(sales >= 121000) // Sales greater than 120k

    System.out.print("Your Sales Commission is 0.06: $");
    System.out.println(sales * bigcommissionRate);
    System.out.print("Your Total Earnings are: $");
    System.out.println(sales * bigcommissionRate + salary);
    }

    }
    }
    }


    // End program

    Welcome! If it's your first time here Please Read.

    There is no loop in your program. If you are talking about this

    if(sales < goalSales){
    //your code
    }
    then its not a loop, this is a control statement.

    If you are getting any error in your code then Please post the full error message.

    In addition to posting your code correctly as suggested by aprabhat's link, statements like this:
    I think there is an issue with my second and thrid algorithms
    are minimally helpful. Be specific: Tell us exactly which code you're talking about, and describe the "issues." Posting sample runs can be helpful with descriptions of how the actual output is incorrect or unexpected. Ask specific questions.
