    Default How can I loop this?

    I need to be able to loop this so the user can input as many items as he/she wants and the quantity as well. He's my code:

    case 3:System.out.print("Enter Customer name");

    System.out.print("\n Enter the product: ");
    String product1=keyboard.next();

    System.out.print( "\n Enter the quantity of the product");
    int quantity1=keyboard.nextInt();

    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for new members.

    Then put it in a loop. A while or do/while loop is a common solution.

    I'm still having trouble. I want the loop so the user can enter up to 5 different items and choose 5 different quantities.

    Show the loop you created that allowed the user to enter 5 items and choose 5 quantities. Since you know that the loop allows a specific number of choices, a for loop might be the simplest:

    for ( int choice = 1 ; choice <= 5 ; choice++ ) {}

    and then the body of the for loop will ask the user to enter 5 items and 5 quantities. Now show what you've tried.
