Write a C++ program that will display the following menu and work accordingly.

A menu which contains functionionality that will allow the following choices:

  1. Enter the name of the file that contains students enrolled in the computer course.
  2. Calculate and display the average and the letter grade for each student to the screen.
  3. Sort data from highest to lowest grade.
  4. Screen display of the sorted data.
  5. Search for a student record by last name and display "Exam Average" and "Letter Grade" .
  6. Write the sorted data to “result.txt” file.

7. Exit.

Sample Output RUN (not a complete example. Menu should be redisplayed after each selection):

Enter 1-7 to select one of the following choices:

  1. Enter the student data file name.
  2. Display the average and the letter grade for each student.
  3. Sort data from highest to lowest grade.
  4. Display the sorted data.
  5. Search for a student record by last name.
  6. Write the sorted data to the “result.txt” file.
  7. Exit.
    >> 1
    Enter the file name>> studInfo.txt
    >> 2
    >> 3
    >> 4

First name Last Name Exams Average Letter Grade
---------- --------- ------------- ------------
Student one 92 A
Student two 80 B
Student three 70 C

i didn't handle firstName and id in struct and input And there is no lettergrade in input file.

i didn't handle firstName and id in struct

Well, add them to the structure.

And there is no lettergrade in input file.

There is in the example you posted. Post the exact contents of the first few lines of the time, not some made-up dummy stuff. We don't have the file so it's impossible for anyone to know what it contains.
