Strings in file I/O/

So I'm trying to do a basic program which takes in id nos. and names and store it in a file.

the problem: ">> does not have any matching operands"

1
2
3
4
   int id;
   string name;
   while( cin >> id >> name )
     fileobj << id  << " " << name;



I use Microsoft Visual Studio 2010

why are you inputting to values with one cin ?

try this :
1
2
3
4
while ( cin >> id ) {
    cin >> name
    fileobj << id << " " << name;
}
sounds like a missing #include <string>

@nevermore28 your code uses the variable name without checking if stream extraction into name succeeded, while OP makes that check

Thanks for the help Cubbi. Fixed it by including <string>
@Cubbi

Oh, i see i didn't know you can input 2 values using only one cin :0
