Having problem displaying a array of characters or symbols.

Hi, I am having an issue with my code, I have tried many solutions but just can't figure it out.

I have a array of floats, so decimal numbers, they are constant they don't change. I have to analyse the data in the table and if it is above, below or neither of its column and row average I assign it a symbol in a new array. Currently the numbers I use are -1,1,0. It prints fine and works the way I want it to. My issue arises when I want to change any of the numbers to symbols like... #$%^ or letters z,x,c,v etc. This is my code currently. If you can see what is wrong can you point me in the right direction.

Thank you

This is just an extract from the code, But I am fairly sure the problem is in here.

Thank you very much, Any help is appreciated.
Can you put the whole code?

I'm not sure I understand what the problem is. You have an array of ints, and you assign the ASCII values of chars to the array elements.

Can you tell us what you expected to happen and what actually happened?
And why do you need to assign symbols like "%"?
Your program really hypnotisms me ,also you're not helping well ,you did give me the code but worthless(for me) without the file data.csv so I erase some of your codes and I generated others

The first post (where you thought thats something wrong it) is perfectly fine ,a simple note is this segment

has some radundant codes ,You need only to if's checks

                averageMap[row][col]=LessThanSymbol;
            else averageMap[row][col]=NeitherThanSymbol;


also you dont need averageMap[row][col]=0;

if you can notice there is no rowCount[row][2]

Otherwise your program is fine
this is closly the output I get

Sorry,

All of the code is fine, It works well and does what I need it to do. The only problem in the code is that I cannot change the 1,-1 and 0 to other symbols. That is all I need it to do. so I want to go to the #define LessSymbol -1 and change it to #define LessSymbol & and it will show a & symbol in the average map, instead of the -1. I realise currently the array is an int, it is because I don't know what it should be to allow me to do what I want. I tried char and that didn't work for me. Hope that is clearer.

Thank you
Well for that there a lots of methods

one way to do it ,is that you can check the value of averageMap[row][col] if it is -1 printf("&") that's easy

for(row = 0; row < MAX_ROWS; row++)
{
    for(col = 0; col < MAX_COLS; col++)
    {
        if(averageMap[row][col]==-1)
            printf("&,");
        else printf("%d,", averageMap[row][col]);
    }

    printf("\n");
}

I still want it to work like it is though, so I can count the occurrences of that symbol, letter or number. I have 3 different symbol,letter or numbers and I have a column and a row count to check how many there are. Is there a way to display the symbol, letter or number in the average map?

Thank you
Yes there is, did you not tried to replace the function I gave it to in the last post with the one in the first code ,replace it then you will get symboles and numbers

output :

Average Map
&,1,&,&,&,1,&,&,&,1,&,&,&,1,&,1,&,&,&,&,
&,0,&,&,&,&,&,&,&,0,1,&,&,&,&,1,&,1,1,&,
&,&,&,0,&,&,&,1,&,1,1,&,&,1,1,&,1,&,&,1,
1,&,&,&,1,1,&,1,0,0,&,&,&,&,&,1,1,&,&,0,
&,1,&,0,1,1,1,&,&,&,&,&,&,&,1,&,&,&,&,&,

1,1,&,&,&,&,&,0,1,&,1,&,1,&,&,&,&,1,&,&,

1,0,1,&,&,1,&,&,&,&,&,&,1,0,1,&,1,0,&,&,
0,1,&,0,&,1,&,0,0,1,1,0,&,1,1,1,&,&,&,&,
&,&,&,1,&,&,&,&,1,&,&,&,1,&,1,&,1,1,&,1,
&,&,&,&,1,1,&,1,&,1,1,&,0,&,&,&,1,&,&,&,
1,1,1,1,&,&,&,&,&,&,&,1,&,1,1,1,&,0,&,0,
&,&,1,1,&,1,1,&,1,&,1,&,1,&,&,&,&,&,&,0,
0,&,1,1,&,&,&,&,1,&,&,&,0,&,&,&,&,1,&,1,
&,&,&,&,1,&,&,1,&,&,1,1,&,&,1,&,1,&,1,&,
&,&,&,&,1,&,1,&,&,&,&,0,&,1,&,&,1,&,1,0,


Is this what are you looking for
Yes, I tried it, I apologise for being a pain.

I need to be able to change it in one place to reflect it over the rest of the code, because there are other for loops relying on average map, If I use the printf("&,"); command, it wont reflect that in the column and row count.

That is why I tried to to define the symbol at the top, so I could go there. Change it and it would reflect that change in every for loop that was relying on the average map.

Thank you
I apologise for being a pain
dont said that ever ,for me that's fun :(

well In this case(I hope) You need to turn the type of averageMap from int to char

Okay
I initially tried that, and it still worked normally. But as soon as I changed the #define LessSymbol -1 to #define LessSymbol $, the problems started.

I changed the int LessThanSymbol=LessSymbol; to a
char LessThanSymbol=LessSymbol;

And the LessSymbol has a red error underline, it says Error identifier $ is undefined. Any ideas?

Thank you
Anyone have any idea?
printf("%c", (char)averageMap[row][col]);
printf("%c", (char)averageMap[row][col]);

That didn't work for me Daleth, I think the problem is where i define it. it says that it is undefined when i put anything but a number there
