error in data.txt file

How to read data.txt file by read each single word.
for example,
Eddy Alfaro Gyrobifastigium Size: 1546 Qty: 78

possibly make looping after that.


ifstream myfile;
ofstream outfile;



if (!myfile)
{
cout << "Cannot open input file." << "Program terminate!" << endl;
return 1;
}



cout << "Enter file name to process: ";
cin >> filename;
myfile.open("data.txt");

cout << "Enter output file name:";
cin >> filename;
outfile.open("out.txt");
cout << "Would you like to process all the records in the file? (y/n)";
cin >> filename;
cout << "Enter number of records to process: ";
cin >> num;
cout << "Maximum requested record count of " << num << "reached\n";
cout << "File processing finished\n";


for (int record=1; record <=5; record++)
{
record+= record;
cout << "Record" << record << endl;
if(myfile.is_open() )
{
string firstName;
string lastName;
while (getline(myfile,firstName))
{
cout << firstName <<endl;


here is my coding.. When I type data.txt, it is not going to show next thing like "Enter your output file"... What should I need it from there?
Please check it all. I appreciated your help

#include <iostream>
#include <string>

using namespace std;
int main(){
	string filename;
	cout << "input filename ";
	cin >> filename;
	cout << "output filename "; //¿do you see this?

	return 0;
}
¿does that work? ¿how is your code different?
show an example run of your program and enough code to reproduce your issue.
Record 1

That's what I need to get.

this is an example of reading the data.txt
Enter file name to process: data.txt
Enter output file name: out.txt
Would you like to process all the records in the file? (y/n) n
Enter number of records to process: 5
Maximum requested record count of 5 reached
