I've seen several postings in regards to this and tried about 40 times to correct the problem, using different methods. My code needs to open a remote file not in the same directory so when I put the variable name in my file path it is not finding my file.
cout << "Please Enter the Date you would like to search for: \n"
<< "(NOTE: MUST BE IN MONTH DAY YEAR FORMAT )";
cin >> fileName;
fin.open ("C:\\fileName", ios::in | ios::nocreate);
cout <<"ERROR: Unable to open the snap server file"<<endl;
I've tried using fin.open("C:\\(fileName.c_str())) and still can't find my file, which I know is there. if enter the string name not using the variable it finds the file just fine, and I if put the file in the same directory that the compiler is using the I can use the variable name "fileName" it finds the file fine. ???? What am I doing wrong when I use a path name and the string varialbe together? Please help.....
