What is your question -- perhaps you forgot to post it? If you have a question about the code you posted then you have to tell us because we are not mind readers.

I don't know what is your question. However, I found you have a small mistake in line 27.

ptrFileIn= fopen([B]"data1"[/B],"r");

I think it suppose to be

ptrFileIn= fopen([B]data1[/B],"r");
