STM32F4 Discovery ADC+USART

Hallo Guys,
I'm working on project which implies analog to digital conversion and at same time transfering the converted data to the PC through the serial port. I've read couple of examples and was led to the following code .... when processing the code, it gives me 0 errors. But during debugging, i couldn't watch the variable data and nothing appears to the port"using putty". Sorry guys, i tried but no progress.

Does anybody have an  idea what could be the problem !!
Thanks for all
