Hi
U need to generate a table class for the table U want to change. Easly done with visual studio, just "add class" and inherit from CRecordset. Tell VS the ODBC name and voila..

//h file:

CDatabase* m_pDB
CYourTableClass* m_pTable;

//cpp file:

m_pDB = new CDatabase;
//TRy to connact to DB
if(!m_pDB->Open("Name of ODBCSource"))       {
   return(FALSE); //Error
}            

m_pTable = new CYourTableClass(m_pDB);
if(m_pTable== NULL) return(FALSE);
m_pTable->YourFunction();

That should do it..
