Need Help With Pascal Assignment..

PaintBrushDoomPaintBrushDoom Posts: 4Member
I'm very new to Pascal and I'm a bit lost. I have to write the code required to display/enter student details and marks.

I'm not sure as to how to put the code into a text so it can be read here but I can tell you that the error line is 14,9, it's an illegal expression and it reads expected ";" but WRITELN found.

    : here but I can tell you that the error line is 14,9, it's an illegal
    : expression and it reads expected ";" but WRITELN found.
    :

    You probably missing an [b];[/b] at 14,9. It must be present at the end of each line or statement except in a few instances like: it cannot precede the [b]else[/b] and it is optional before the [b]end[/b] statement. If you can't find the problem feel free to post your code here.

    Program Student_Data;


    Uses crt;


    Begin
    Clrscr;

    Writeln; '***************************************************'

    Writeln; 'School For Beginners'

    Writeln; 'Oklahoma City'

    Writeln; 'Oklahoma'

    Writeln; 'Subject' 'Marks' 'Subject' 'Marks'

    Writeln; 'English' 'Math'

    Writeln; 'History' 'Science'

    'Geography'
    'Total Points Earned:'
    'Total Points: '



    Writeln; 'Do you wish to view more (Y/N)?


    ' ***********************************************************'

    End.

    Okay. I finally got it. Now the error apparently is at line 12,9. which is the line that reads

    WRITELN;'School For Beginners'

    The error at 12,9 is apparently an illegal expression.

    You should use parentheses around the quoted strings. You can use Writeln by itself, but to get some information on the screen, it needs to be put together, thusly:
    [code]: Writeln; 'School For Beginners'

    Writeln( 'School For Beginners' );
    [/code]

    Another error message.

    Writeln ('Oklahoma City');

    Illegal Expression

    Syntax error, ";" expected but identifier WRITELN found
