VC++ Win32 Console App. with ODBC(Sql.h)etc.

Dear Madam/Sir,

I had encountered a problem when I compile the Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 Win32 Console Application with ODBC (included sql.h and sqlext.h). The problem is there are some syntax errors in the sqltypes.h
The following is operating steps:
1) Run the Visual C++ 6.0 in Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0
2) Select "File", then select "New"
3) Press "Projects"
4) Select "Win32 Console Application"
5) Fill the "Test" in field Project name, and press "OK"
6) Select A "Hello, World!" application
7) Press "Finish", and "OK"
8) Press "FileView", and open the file "Test.cpp"
9) Add the lines as follow:
        #include "sql.h"
        #include "sqlext.h"
10)Select the "Build" in main menu, and build it.

Your will find the problem. Could you help me to overcome it? My email address is csxhuang@yahoo.com
I am looking forward to hearing from you!

You need to add

#include <windows.h>

before your #include "sql.h"
