void main(){ has never ever ever been correct. int main(){ is.

For your code to work, the executable needs to be in the same directory as the text file you're trying to open. Is it? How do you know?

what exactly is the error? compiler error? runtime erro? you get the "6rror opening file" message in your program?

You also need to tell us what compiler and operating system you are using.
