Every time I write a code using Visual Studio for my C++ class, I keep getting reference linking errors and I dont know how to fix it. I have attached the code and the error that I keep getting.

// Fig. 3.7: fig03_07.cpp 47
 // Instantiating multiple objects of the GradeBook class and using
 // the GradeBook constructor to specify the course name
 // when each GradeBook object is created.
 #include <iostream>
 using std::cout;
 using std::endl;

 #include <string> // program uses C++ standard string class
 using std::string;

// GradeBook class definition
 class GradeBook
 {
 public:
 // constructor initializes courseName with string supplied as argument
 GradeBook( string name )
 {
 setCourseName( name ); // call set function to initialize courseName
 } // end GradeBook constructor


 // function to set the course name
 void setCourseName( string name )
 {
 courseName = name; // store the course name in the object
 } // end function setCourseName
// function to get the course name 48
 string getCourseName()
 {
 return courseName; // return object's courseName
 } // end function getCourseName

 // display a welcome message to the GradeBook user
 void displayMessage()
 {
 // call getCourseName to get the courseName
 cout << "Welcome to the grade book for\n" << getCourseName()
 << "!" << endl;
 } // end function displayMessage
 private:
 string courseName; // course name for this GradeBook
 }; // end class GradeBook

Errors I keep getting:

Every program must have one main() function. The code you posted does not have that.

Thank you, I didnt realize I forgot the main function. Once I added the main function it work.

Thank you again for your help.
