Default Structs

Hi, I get a Error from the code of page 15 and 16 about structs, The code from the book works fine but when i try to make my one struct. And try to make the same program but with different variables and names it doesn't work. For Example I tried to change the name of the struct with the same code.

//Header File
typedef struct{
char firstInitial;
char middleInitial;
char lastInitial;
int employeeNumber;
int salary;
} EmployeeD; (Changed from EmployeeT)

cpp File

#include <iostream>
#include "employeestruct.h"
using namespace std;

int main ()
// create and populate an employee
EmployeeD anEmployee; ......

After this it gave my an error message:
error: expected ';' before 'anEmployee',
error: 'EmployeeD' was not declared in this scope and
error: 'anEmployee' was not declared in this scope

Can somebody explain this ?

You are including "employeestruct.h".
Are you sure you changed it to EmployeeD in that "employeestruct.h" header file and not in another header file?
