Hi friends,

I just started taking a intro to java programming course for my major programming requirement and I'm having trouble using "else" when I'm trying to make if statements.

Every time I type in "else" it gives me the error "Syntax error on token, "else," Delete this token"

I've been watching videos and I'm really trying to get a leg up on the class and really get an understanding of java and eclipse because I've always liked the idea of being able to program using java.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

First, this is a Java not an Eclipse question. Java questions are better
referred to forums for that purpose, some include javaranch.com,
jguru.com and stackoverflow.com.

Second, it's pretty hard to play compiler for you when you don't submit
any code to look at.

All that said, you're probably missing some curly braces.

if (age>100);

That semicolon terminates the if statement, so the else doesn't go with anything. Remove the semicolon.
