I using a function to get information about the current DC. In this case, I
want to grab the current DC and save it off so that I might modify it to
retrieve information about a particular font. CClientDC wants a CWnd *.
Previously, I would save a ptr to the main application window but I'm trying
to provide a better encapsulation so I don't have to rely on an external ptr
of sorts. Is there an API call that will allow me to get the pointer to the
main application (process)?

There is nothing built in that does that. You will have to write the code to

Let's suppose that the x- and y- ranges are in A2:A51 and B2:B51
respectively, and you are fitting a 6-order polynomial to your data. Select
a 7 column x 1 row area, enter the following formula, and confirm
The formula will return the 7 coefficients, starting from the zeroth order
