    Struct and file problem!!! urgent

    I am writing a program that refuses to work. I use fwrite to write the struct to a file in main. Everything seems to write properly. However I can't seem to read the info back from the file properly. All the members that were read and assigned in main are working however whenever i pass the struct to functions to read or assign specific members, those members are not able to be read properly from the file.

    Please help!!!

    I am using windows vista home promium and borland 5.02

    You shouldn't reopen the same file inside another function (especially if you want it to pick up reading where the other function left off); if you need to pass a file around, then pass it in as a FILE* parameter to the function.
