Lab 7 of 7: Sequential Files                                   

Lab Overview - Scenario/Summary

 You will code, build, and execute a program that requires sequential files to create an address database.

Learning Outcomes 

Continue using a menu system with console applications

Be able to write a console application

Demonstrate entering, appending, storing, and retrieving records

Be able to write lines of output to a text file in order to create a report

Lab Steps


If you are using the Citrix remote lab, follow the login instructions located in the iLab tab in Course Home. 

Locate the Visual Studio 2010 icon and launch the application.


Step 1: Requirements: An Address Database

Create a C++ console application that will store and retrieve names and addresses in a text file.

The program should do the following.

It should accept a series of names and addresses from the console.

The user's input should be written to a text file in the CSV format described in the lecture, but do not include the field names in the first row of the file.

Read the records from the text file, and display them in a user-friendly format.

Provide a menu to allow the user to append records to the file, display the records, or exit the application.

Build upon the code below to complete the assignment.

Step 3: Create a New Project

Create a new project and name it LAB7. Write your code using the processing logic in Step 2. Make sure you save your program.

Step 4: Compile and Execute

Compile your program. Eliminate all the syntax errors.

Build your program and verify the results of the program. Make corrections to the program logic, if necessary, until the results of the program execution are what you expect. 

Step 5: Print Screenshots and Program 

Capture a screen print of your output. (Do a print screen and paste into an MS Word document.)

Copy your code and paste it into the same MS Word document that contains the screen print of your output.

Save the Word document as Lab07_LastName_FirstInitial.
