I am inputing from a text file, displaying it on the screen, displaying the menus and the choosing from there. It will repeat the menu, but, how to do I get it to read the next line in my input file and display it to the screen before repeating the menu?

Here's what I have.

    char first[SIZE], last[SIZE], phone[SIZE], status;
    int X, pref;
    
    ifstream inputFile; //File Stream Object
    inputFile.open ("c:\\potentials.txt", ios::in);  //Open File
    
   
    if (inputFile.fail()) //Error Opening File
   { 
      cout << "Error opening file. The file could not be found.\n";
      cout <<""<<endl;
      system ("PAUSE");
      return EXIT_FAILURE;  
   }

    // Determine status
    inputFile >> status;
    if (status == 'X' || status == 'x')
   {
      cout << "Preferred -- 7.9%" << endl;
      pref=0;
   }  
    else

   }

Place all the code you want to repeat each time new stuff is read from the file inside the body of a loop, maybe lines 34 through 76, or something like that. Use line 35 as the controlling condition for the loop to run by placing it between the parenthesis of a while loop.

Thanks, I got it working.
