void getInputFile(char** argv[]) {

//Local Declaration
FILE* spIn;

printf("\nRetrieving Data");
spIn = fopen("argv[1]", "r");

printf("\nCould not open input file\a\n");

This is a function that I have written in eclipse (Indigo). In my project folder I have 3 sub-folders the source folder, release folder and debug folder. I have also created a text file and placed a copy of this text file in each sub-folder. This are the steps I took read the text file. Run Configuration -> my project release folder is selected -> Arguments under the Program arguments I typed in the name of the text file inputFile.txt. And I clicked on the run button. but the error message I programmed came up. It seems as though eclipse cannot find my inputFile.txt. How do I correct this problem. Thank you!

Arrays in C start with indexes of 0. Try printing out argv[0] as part of the error message.
