    Unhappy Why does this give me an error?

    if(choice1.equals ("0"))
    MainMenu();
    else if(choice1.equals("Hello"))
    System.out.println("Conversation initiated.");
    Conversation();
    else
    System.out.println("Sorry? Reverting to main menu.");
    MainMenu();

    I don't understand where my error is. If I delete the word Conversation(); , the error goes away, but then I don't have a way to initiate my Conversation function. Any help?

    You can either have a single statement or a block within an "if".

    Single statement:
    Java Code:
    if (true)
       statement;

    Block:
    Java Code:
    if (true) {
       statement1;
       statement2;
       statement3;
    }

    Thanks, that helped me out. I managed to leave out the curly brackets.

    Always use braces around if statements and loops even if you do not need them. Just to avoid problems like this.
