Here's my compiler errors:

jbw_OfficeTest.java:35: <identifier> expected
catch(InputMismatchException){

jbw_OfficeTest.java:61: <identifier> expected
catch(InputMismatchException){


Here's my code:

Your syntax is incorrect. Take a look at some examples in the Java exceptions tutorial, and you'll see that you are missing something.

also search for InputMismatchException on this forum; you will find ways to avoid it completely. Maybe here, or here, and while we are at it, here is a different pitfall with Scanner.
