You didn't say whether you wanted to read from it or to write to it.

To open a file for reading on channel nnnn

open (nnnn, 'afile.txt', status='old')

To open for writing

open (nnnn, 'afile.txt', status='new')

Sure

program main
    ! SRC is the input channel
    ! DST is the output channel
    integer SRC, DST
    parameter (SRC = 20, DST = 30)  ! any number will do
    integer i, isq

    ! Output a table of squares
    ! use unknown so you can run the program over and  over again
    open (DST, file='squares.txt', status='unknown')
    do i = 1, 10, 1
       isq = i * i
       write (DST, '(I2, I4)') i, isq
    end do
    close (DST)

    ! Read the file and print it
    open (SRC, file='squares.txt', status='old')
    do while (.true.)
       read (SRC, '(I2, I4)', end = 100) i, isq
       print *, i, isq
    end do
!   end of file reached
100 continue
    close (SRC)
    stop
end program
