We can't see your screen & code from here. We are also not here to do your work for you. If you want help, then you need to post code and explain where you are having issues, error messages encountered, etc...

1 solution

Here is how I would approach it:
1. Define a class with the properties: Name, Gender, Status, Condition
2. Define a list/array to hold a collection of the class
3. Open first file and load the list
4. Open second file and update the list
5. Write the list in a new file.

Also I am curious, when you are talking about update? what would happen to the other boxes like gender and status? would they still stay? if they are then could you please help me to understand how>

last one, when I am calling the second file, do I have to use the same FILE pointer ?
for example I used FILE *update for inserting the first text data. To update with second file data do I have to use *update again?
