    Works fine for me. Provide an explicit example of how you are running the program.

    I guess it works fine if you just type in the first name of the artist. However if you type it in with a space, I get an error. Is it the same way for you?


    For example:

    Artist:
    boogy woogy

    album:
    woogy

    year:
    1999

    doesn't work.

    But this works:

    Artist:
    boogy

    album:
    woogy

    year:
    1999

    Thanks for testing the program out for me.

    Ahh! That would be due to reading the artist name with the next method and not the nextLine method.
