I'm getting this error when I try to compile the code. ';' expected
Public Static Void Main (String [] args) {
1 error

I know it must be something really simple but I just can't find it. Could someone point out to me what's keeping this from compiling?

Java is case-sensitive, so you need to use the exact spelling, including case, of symbols and reserved words. In your case, "Public Static Void Main" should be "public static void main".

Ahh, thank you! Staring me right in the face.

Again thanks so much! Now to move to Chapter 7.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
