A homework then.

Explain better, try atleast something yourself, post code here and we will help you but we do not make your homeworks.

He/she probably meant to save the data in a file that NOTEPAD can OPEN, since there is no such concept as "save the data in notepad".

Here is a routine that creates a simple 2-line file that NOTEPAD can OPEN:

OPEN "MyStuff.txt" FOR OUTPUT AS #1
PRINT #1, "First line"
PRINT #1, "Last line"
CLOSE #1

If you look at that and hit yourself in the head, saying "I should have figured that out myself! How did I miss that!", then you are in good shape. Do as E.K.Virtanen said and make your best try. Ask specific questions such as "Why does this stop with this error message...", not general questions such as "What else do I have to do?".

If you have no idea what the OPEN/CLOSE stuff above means and how it fits into your assignment, just turn in a sheet to your professor saying "I have no idea how to write this program" and maybe you can get some person-to-person help.

I think he needs help using a DOS SHELL to open his file IN Notepad!

Your professor

PS: What do you mean by "I think my program is about AIRPORT BOOKING"? I sure could not tell you!

That is NOT CODE! That is an outline of your freaking assignment! We don't write code for people that is homework and you seem like a smart ass anyhow!

Finally, out of the goodness of your heart, you give us your assignment! And you banter us for not writing it for you? Ooops, where did I put my crystal ball? Your not worth my time smarty pants!

Perhaps Mommy or Daddy can help.

well...assuming that u KNOW some qbasic commands..

u need some simple commands and loads of logic...
you'll find SELECT CASE command useful..
just print out the menu and get the number using INPUT command..
and print that in ur notepad file as shown by Mac..
and searching and deleting is harder and you cannot learn it in 2 weeks but atleast u can program it so that it prints the inputted data in notepad file..
hope i helped you..but u can't expect people to do your homework/assignment...they'll never write the whole program for you..that's what u r expecting i think...
and if you don't have any programming knowledge of qbasic..you should really try out Mac's idea..
