Please add #include <afxdb.h> in stdafx.h and
try using CDatabase and CRecordset classes.
For eg: see this.
               try
            {
            CDatabase db;
            db.OpenEx(_T( "DSN=XXX"),
                               CDatabase::openReadOnly |
                               CDatabase::noOdbcDialog ) ;
            CRecordset rs(&db);
            rs.Open(CRecordset::forwardOnly,
                         _T("SELECT trade FROM SUPERNDC"));
            CString csWord ;
            char chSx[5] ;
            while( !rs.IsEOF() )
            {
                  rs.GetFieldValue("trade", csWord);
                  if(Soundex((LPSTR)(LPCTSTR)csWord, chSx))
                        m_oList.AddItem((LPSTR)(LPCTSTR)csWord, chSx) ;
                  rs.MoveNext();
            }
            rs.Close();
            db.Close();
            }
            catch(CDBException* pExp)
            {
                  pExp->ReportError() ;
            }      

The above code can be used in a function to get instant access to a table and get data.. i used it to load data from a dictionary table to my data structure.. This should help u.
       Regards...
