I am to use two input files to create three other output files of specific formatting.

I need to use structs and arrays..I am lost can someone help point me in the right direction?

Please press the code button before you paste your code. Please explain your problem better. What does your program do to the data before it writes it into other files?

How can I read in a text file so that I can get any piece of that string of various data types?

#include <sstream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;


int main () {

    string line;
    string data[6];
    int datacounter = 0;
    string substr = "";
    ifstream lastfile;
    lastfile.open("lastweek.txt"); 



    ifstream myfile;
    myfile.open ("transaction.txt");

  ofstream thisfile;
  thisfile.open ("thisweek.txt");


      getline(lastfile,line);


  for (int i = 0; i< line.length(); i++)
  {
      if (line.at(i) == ' ')
      {
            data[datacounter] = substr;
            datacounter ++;
            substr = "";
      }
      else
      {
          substr = substr + line.at(i);
      }
  }

  //print outs each substring
  for (int j = 0; j< 6; j++)
  {
      cout << data[j]<<" ";
  }
  cout << endl;

  datacounter = 0;
}
