File is saved in project folder and data is written on it !! but don't know why Display function file not working..I don't Know much about file handling. I made this program with the help of a youtube tutorial:
https://www.youtube.com/watchv=p3m3qLNX9zA (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3m3qLNX9zA) ..The purpose of this program is to ADD data and DISPLAY data by using file handling !! Please help me with it !!

Post the addbook() function.

See the comments I added to your display function.

void display()
{
    ifstream ofile("abc.txt");
    string bookname;
    string publisher;
    string author;
    int copies;
    int price;
    int edition;

    // none of this will display anything from abc.txt
    // as nothing from abc.txt has been read.
    cout<<" Book Name: "<<bookname<<endl;
    cout<<" Publisher Name: "<<publisher<<endl;
    cout<<" Author Name : "<<author<<endl;
    cout<<" No. Of Copies: "<<copies<<endl;
    cout<<" Price: "<<price<<endl;
    cout<<" Book Edition: "<<edition<<endl;


    // this is where you read abc.txt, but you're not formatting the output
    // so it will display as one contiguous jumble of book details
    while (ofile>>bookname>>publisher>>author>>copies>>price>>edition)
    {
        cout<<bookname<<publisher<<author<<copies<<price<<edition;
    }
    ofile.close();
}

Just move the formatting to inside the while loop.

    while (ofile>>bookname>>publisher>>author>>copies>>price>>edition)
    {
        cout<<" Book Name: "<<bookname<<endl;
        cout<<" Publisher Name: "<<publisher<<endl;
        cout<<" Author Name : "<<author<<endl;
        cout<<" No. Of Copies: "<<copies<<endl;
        cout<<" Price: "<<price<<endl;
        cout<<" Book Edition: "<<edition<<endl<<endl;
    }

It would also be a good idea to check whether abc.txt is actually opened.

    ifstream ofile("abc.txt");
    if (!ofile.is_open() )
    {
        // error opening file, handle error
        return;
    }
