Can you show the definitions for these tables (i.e., the CREATE TABLE

This code is not going to work. You are creating a local copy (on the
stack) of the ItemType object (theValue) and then assign a pointer to
it to the data member (productType). You are lucky you are getting an
exception. Normally you would end up with access violation.

A quick and dirty fix would be to instead assign a pointer to the object
that is in the vector (you will either need to pass non-const reference
to the vector of make productType const):


Better yet, use std::shared_ptr to manage your objects.
