When I am reading a Binary .dat file I have everything working properly. Finding characters, sum of integers, sum of doubles, averages... the only thing I can not get it to read is the max and min o the integers and the doubles. I have tried MAX_VALUE and MaxValue. Here is my code.

How so? This code:

is equivalent to your code:

It just puts a variable in between reading the int and summing it. You need that variable to test for the max int.

Again, how so? The only variable that changes value is maxInt, which you didn't have before.

Not related to your issue, but why do you have two nested while loops?
