What's the exact error message? There is surely more than "Syntax error".

you have an error in sql syntax check the manual that corresponds to your mysql server versiĆ³n for the right syntax to use near type=InnoDB at line 7

The TYPE keyword was deprecated since MySQL/4.0.18 and was removed in MySQL/5.1.

From 4.x manual:

The ENGINE and TYPE options specify the storage engine for the table. ENGINE was added in MySQL 4.0.18 (for 4.0) and 4.1.2 (for 4.1). It is the preferred option name as of those versions, and TYPE has become deprecated. TYPE is supported throughout the 4.x series, but likely will be removed in the future.

I suppose you're generating the code manually rather than reporting an issue with HeidiSQL table editor.
