Hello again, I am currently writing a program that grabs information from a .dat file. When I go to debut I get this error.Name:  Untitled.jpg

Code:
#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include <fstream>
using namespace std;

// function step 1 - declare the prototypes
void sort(int n); // catches an integer number from the call
void swap(string *p1, string *p2); //catches the location of data in ram

// array number 1, declare & size the array
string *lname, *lyear, *ltype; // global because it needs to work with both main & sort

int main() {
	int i, count = 0;
	string type, name, year;
	// open data file - create the fin object, - attach to datafile
	ifstream fin("c:\\data2\\club.dat");
	//count the records
	while (!fin.eof()){
		fin >> name >> type >> year;
		count++;
	}
	fin.close();

	//array  size the arrays
	ltype = new string[count];
	lname = new string[count];
	lyear = new string[count];

	//load the arrays
	fin.open("c:\\data2\\club.dat");

	for (i = 0; i < count; i++) {
		fin >> name[i] >> type[i] >> year[i];

	}
	fin.close();

	sort(6);

	cout << "Here is the Array - Sorted \n\n";

	// output
	for (i = 0; i < 6; i++)
		cout << name[i] << "\t" << type[i] << "\t" << year[i] << "\n";
		//delete the arrays
		delete [] lname;
		delete [] ltype;
		delete [] lyear;

		system("pause");
		return 0;
}

//Function step 3 - The Function Definition
void sort(int n) {
	int i, j, low; //Local variable - only exists in the sort function
	for (i = 0; i < n - 1; i++){
		
		low = i;

		for (j = i + 1; j < n; j++)
			if (lname[j] < ltype[low])
				low = j;

		if (i != low) { //Need a swap call for every array
			swap(&lname[i], &ltype[low]); //call to the swap function - the address if a[i] will be caught by
									    //the variable *p1 & the address of a[low] will be caught by *p2
			swap(&lname[i], &ltype[low]);


		}
	}
}

void swap(string *p1, string *p2) {
	string temp = *p1;
	*p1 = *p2;
	*p2 = temp;
}
