I'm trying to use composition. I included the header file and made a type of the class that is contained within the owner class but I keep getting errors like this:

c:\documents and settings\cheryl\desktop\parking lot system\person.cpp(7) : error C2614: 'PERSON' : illegal member initialization: 'DATE' is not a base or member
c:\documents and settings\cheryl\desktop\parking lot system\person.cpp(7) : error C2614: 'PERSON' : illegal member initialization: 'DATE' is not a base or member
c:\documents and settings\cheryl\desktop\parking lot system\person.cpp(7) : error C2614: 'PERSON' : illegal member initialization: 'CARD' is not a base or member

What am I missing? Here's the code:

PERSON HAS DATE AND CARD

#ifndef PERSON_H
#define PERSON_H

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include "date.h"
#include "card.h"

	~PERSON();
	

	
	void setID(int);
