I have the problem with getline in line 170. Please help me

>> getline(istream& fin, string& num_of_isbn, char '\n');
That is a function prototype, not a function call. As written, it will do nothing. If you want to actually call getline() then you need to change it to this: getline(fin, num_of_isgn); -- Not the '\n' parameter (last parameter) is not needed because that is the default.

fin.open(inFile);
is this what you mean???

Maybe -- depends on what inFile is defined to be. If it's a std::string object then fin.open(inFile.c_str());
