    char Subject[A];
    long ISBN;
    ptr next;
    };

    typedef ptr Postion;
     void ReadFromFile(l);
    int main()
    {
        LIST l;
    l=(LIST)malloc(sizeof(struct Lab));
    l->next=NULL;
    ReadFromFile(l);
     
    return 0;
    }
      void ReadFromFile(LIST l){
       char reading[50];
       FILE*fin;
       printf("Enter the name of file");
       scanf("%s",reading);
       fin=fopen(reading,"r");
       if(fin == NULL){
        printf("the file not exsit");
       ReadFromFile(l);

    What are you entering for the file name? Does that file actually exist in the projects working directory?
