Hi,

Welcome to CodeRanch!

While posting code, please UseCodeTags. This can be used by selecting the code text and pressing 'code' button.

Also, please TellTheDetails - that is, what is the error you are getting?

In the future, please post the error message.

In this case, you are trying to declare a method within another. Not possible.
