Error code 216 means that there is a general protection fault.

Here's what the Pascal help says.

 ÚÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ¿
 ³ General Protection fault  ³
 ÀÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÙ

This error results if you try to access memory that is not legal for your
application to access. The operating system halts your application and tells
you that a general protection (GP) fault occurred, but your system does not
crash.

The following practices cause GP faults:

 * Loading constant values into segment registers

 * Performing arithmetic operations on segment registers of selectors

 * Using segment registers for temporary storage

 * Writing to code segments

 * Accessing memory beyond the local address space given to your application

 * Derefencing nil pointers

I think you have to look through your code one more time, or maybe try to run it on another computer. If it works ok there, it could be something wrong with the setup on your PC.

I have a procedure that is open an existing file for read in

assign(memberfile,'member.txt')
reset(memberfile)

{ read(member,newnode^.id,newnode^.name);

..
..
..
..

writeln(newnode^.id,newnode^.name);



when I run the program
error 104: file not open for input

That's really another question you are asking.

What I am suspecting is that you have declared memberfile to be a file of text.  In which case using reset means that you can only open the file for reading.  You are trying to write to the file hence the error.
