 CString sDsn;
	 sDsn= _T("ODBC;DSN=Report;Pwd=tratra"); 
	 CDatabase objMerilDB;
	 objMerilDB.Open(NULL,false,false,sDsn);
	 CRecordset objRecordSet;
	 objRecordSet.m_pDatabase = &objMerilDB;
	 CString strQuery = "ALTER TABLE result ALTER COLUMN IdTest Text";
	 objRecordSet.Open(CRecordset::OpenType::dynaset, strQuery);

you may not use a CRecordset. instead, after objMerilDB.Open has returned without error, use

objMerilDB.SQLExecute(_T("ALTER TABLE result ALTER COLUMN IdTest Text"));
