Your fscanf should be in this way
fscanf("%s %f", ming[count].name, &name[count].money);

Another possibility is you must make sure that the records in your text file must be in the below standard:
name1 99
name2 88

Another problem in your program is that you should use the for loop in the below way
for ( count=0; count<10; i++ )
index for array starts at 0 and not 1. The above for loop will loop 10 times and occupy array from 0-9.
Another thing to make sure is that you should make sure that the text file has at least 10 records altogether.

I suggest you using the below loop to read the file
while ( !(feof(fp) )
{
    fscanf(...);
}
