error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol

I have a GlobalV.h file with Static Variables listed.

These are called from various classes the variables as GlobalV::???variable name.

I now get the following errors, any ideas?

Error      40      error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "public: static char * * GlobalV::gVComponentRecs" (?gVComponentRecs@GlobalV@@2PAPADA)      ListenMainHandler.obj
Error      41      error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "public: static int GlobalV::gNComponentRecs" (?gNComponentRecs@GlobalV@@2HA)      ListenMainHandler.obj

I don't see a definition for gNComponentRecs in the header, but most likely you forgot to define it in the cpp

You need something like below defined in a .cpp file to define your statics as currently they are only declared
int  GlobalV::gNComponentvalues = 0;
char ** GlobalV::gVComponentvalues = 0;
