    fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file-Using Classes

    Hi! I'm currently taking OOD for C++ and had to write a program using classes, but for some reason, I keep getting the "fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'student': No such file or directory" when compiling. I followed the book's instructions and still have no solution. If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Code:
    #include "student.h"
    Code:
    using namespace std; //don't do this in header files, it ruins it for the source files.

    #include "staff.h"

    Only standard C++ headers are without the extension. If you save a file with an extension ".h", you need to mention it in the include directive.
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.
