    Can you post the full text of your program? Also, make sure you use proper formatting and the highlight tags, otherwise your code is impossible to read!

    Please ensure you apply a good and consistent code convention for the format and indentation of your code. It can make errors like this more obvious to you, especially if you're not using an IDE like Eclipse or NetBeans.

    Do make an effort to look through this: Code Conventions for the Java Programming Language: Contents , and in particular the "7.4 if, if-else, if else-if else Statements" section at Code Conventions for the Java Programming Language: 7. Statements (the reason will become obvious below.)

    Your code, if formatted properly, would look like this:
    public String translateGrade(int score) {
        String grade = "F";
        if (score >= 90) {
            grade = "A");
        }
        else {
            if (score >= 80) {
                grade = "B";
            }
            else {
                if (score >= 70) {
                    grade = "C";
                }
                else {
                    if (score >= 60) {
                        grade = "D";
                    }
     
                }
            }
        }
        return grade;
    }

    Pay attention to this line:
    grade = "A");

    As KevinWorkman implied there may also be other syntactical errors in the rest of your code. Hopefully with good formatting you'll be able to find them yourself (if any).
