    Well, for starters you're using the deprecated headers, it should be like this:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <conio.h>
    //#include <string> no string library functions used
    using namespace std; //nescessary
    ...
    ofstream a_file(crt);
    Detailed understanding of language features - even of all features of a language - cannot compensate for lack of an overall view of the language and the fundamental techniques for using it. - Bjarne Stroustrup

    Also the recursion (calling main() at the end of main), should be avoided when the problem can be solved another way.

    here are my suggestions
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <fstream>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
      int choice;
      char crt[90];
      //char eee[5];
      // Unneccessary as of yet
    
      cout<<" Welcome to the new banking program \n";
      cout<<"---------------------------------------------------------------------\n";
      cout<<"Please choose from the below options:\n";
      cout<<"1. Create a new account.\n";
      cout<<"2. Open an existing account.\n";
      cout<<"3. Edit an existing account.\n";
      cout<<"4. Information about the programmer.\n";
      cout<<"5. Quit.\n";
      cout<<"----\n";
      cout<<"Your Choice: ";
    
      cin>>choice;
      cin.ignore();
      cout<<" -------------------------------------------------------------\n";
      if(choice==1) 
        {
          cout<<"Please type in your account name:\n"; 
          cin.getline(crt, 90); 
          ofstream a_file(crt, ios::noreplace); 
          // just crt here will do what you expect, create a file with the name crt
        }
      cout << "The name of your new account: " << crt << endl;
    
      return 0;
      //main(); recursive, and with no "break" to stop is a bad idea
    }
    Ultimately, if you plan to expand the menu and include all the options, I would reccomend that you look into the subject of Object-oriented-programming (OOP), and Classes.
