In my program, I used a vector to store the file. The file contains the data (see below).
Do I need to create two vectors to store the data below as integers and strings?
Or is there a shorter way to do this, and just allow the user to enter the ISBN number and returns the TITLE, AUTHOR, and AVAILABLE Status? Thanks for the help!

Probably the easiest solution is to define a structure type (or a class, if you've gotten that far in your studies), and then declare a vector of that type. Something like the following should do:

struct Book
{
    long isbn;
    std::string title;
    std::string author;
    bool available;
};

std::vector<Book>;

yea we have not gone to objected oriented yet, but thanks for the reply though.
