It means your source file is not valid C.

We could suspect that there is a header file which you could include which would define state_field as a valid variable type (you can define your own types in C) but without more information, this is pure speculation. Most likely a local person (perhaps whoever gave you the assignment to compile this file) would know much better than us here inside of your computer.
