In my snippet. Is it necessary to delete or initialize the member variable, m_hstmt?
		CString m_SQLString;
		CString m_WhereClause;
		short m_nFields;		// The number of fields in this rowset
		SQLHSTMT	m_hstmt;		// Statement Handle

I think not, as you can see:
typedef SQLHANDLE               SQLHSTMT;
typedef void *                          SQLHANDLE;

it's a void pointer. So no memory disallocation needed. Initialization as any other pointer

Excuse my lack of knowledge with void *, what makes them unique that one needn't deallocate if they are allocated? Is the ponter created on the stack and released when complete or...

You get the points, but would appreciate the followup question.

Many thanks!
