    gee, how about entering your code in an IDE and

    (a) fix any syntax errors
    (b) step through the execution if your output is wrong.

    checkBoth() has a glaring logic error.

    detailLoop() need to consider what happens if you come to the end of one file before its room?Name is greater than that of the other. Avoiding an infinite loop would be a good idea.
