I am trying to return data from a freaky do while or the if statement loop and it will not return the items I set why?


// yesno to n for first loop through.

do {
System.out.println("Welcome Sales ID: " + salesID + " please enter the samsung TV sold: \n");
samsungProduct = scanValue.next();
System.out.println("Please enter your total TV sales amounts individually for today \n");
singleSale = scanValue.nextDouble();
totalSales = totalSales + singleSale;
totalItems = totalItems++;
System.out.println("Do you want to enter another sales total(Y/N): \n ");
yesNo = scanValue.next();

} while (!yesNo.equalsIgnoreCase("N"));

// get the items set inside of the do while loop.

// The system print out values are empty.
System.out.printf(salesID + " you entered a total of: " + totalItems + "With a total sales of $%15.2f" + totalSales);

totalItems = totalItems++;


Change it to just or

Search the forums, there have been questions on why it doesnt work.

My question is about the increment I am asking how do you return data from the do while loop that is suppose to be set in each value.

the totalSales inside of my do while loop should have data set when it comes out of the loop it does not save the data into the totalSales or totalItems values.

// The system print out values are empty.
System.out.printf(salesID + " you entered a total of: " + totalItems + "With a total sales of $%15.2f" + totalSales);

Have you tried what people recommended? Did you read the FAQ they pointed you to? If you did, tell us what happened once you changed your code as they suggested, and what (if any) problem you still have.
