I need to keep count of how many scores are entered using the enterButton, accumulate those scores and find the average score, best score and worst score. Without using arrays. But I'm kind of stuck. My code compiles but it doesn't run correctly. Can someone please help me??

Please help me!!

Welcome to JavaRanch

Start from scratch. with a pencil and paper. Write down something like this
  • Somebody enters 65
  • How many scores have I got?
  • What is the worst score to date
  • What is the best score you have to date?
  • Somebody enters a different score
  • etc
  • It is quite easy, if you break it down into tiny steps like that and think how you are going to handle each of them.

    And start with a command-line version of your application. If you can't get the functionality, adding a GUI on top simplymakes things more difficult for you.
    I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
