Getting the memory error of c++ exception of char at memory location

I am having trouble with my code compiling. It builds just fine. However when I try to turn it, the code spits out the memory error. I have stepped into the function, and it is storing the vectors where it is suppose to. I have been trying to figure out how to fix this code error. I am not sure how to fix it though.

Which line causes the error?

What is the exact error? The exact words and numbers.
Please provide the necessary header files (at a rough guess, school.h) so that your program could be compiled.

Please also provide a sample input file that causes your error.

It is very difficult to debug code that cannot be compiled and run.
I guessed at some headers and input file just to run your code. It seems to run fine, so your problem is probably elsewhere.

Run by:
temp.exe in out
