Hello guys,
I'm quite new to C++, I'm trying to achieve a task whereby i could read from a csv file and write to that same file and vice versa depending on the user's selection. This is what i did:

Here's the data already on file
1,Mickey,23,090,Girne,TRNC,465
2,Charles,23,090,Girne,TRNC,465
3,Species,23,090,Girne,TRNC,465
4,Moody,23,090,Girne,TRNC,465
5,Kpokiyo,23,090,Girne,TRNC,465
6,Sualp,23,090,Girne,TRNC,465

Here's the code i wrote so far

#include <iostream>
#include <sstream>
#include <fstream>
#include <vector>
#include <string>

    using namespace std;

    void breakArray(string x[], string y[][7], int num);
    bool checkAccout(string x[], int y, string search);
    void findUser(string x[], string y[],string z[], string a[],string t[], 
    string c[], string d[]);
    int findRowNumber();
    
    int main()
    {
        int option;
        int acc;
        string emp[findRowNumber()][7];

        while (getline (inFile, line))
        {
            linenum++;
        }
        inFile.close();
        return linenum;
    }

It seems to work great when i choose to search for a user(selecting 4). However, the problem is when i try to write to file, it's works but when i try to do any other task like searching the user again or re-writing to file, the program crashes.
Please what i'm i doing wrong.

Thanks
