Question about SetCurSel()


I have a combo box control specified with the drop down (not drop list) 
style.  The list box portion of the control is populated with data from a 
recordset to allow the user to select from a list of pre-loaded items.  Or 
they may choose to type in a new entry.  

As the user enters data into the edit box portion of the control, the 
program checks after each keystroke to see if the entry data matches anything 
currently in the list.  If it does, the drop down list appears and the list 
item closely or exactly matching the data that has been entered is selected 
and appears in the edit box portion of the control.   This functionality is 
performed in the handler for the CBN_EDITCHANGE message.

The problem I'm having is that the list item selected does not appear 
highlighted (i.e., selected) in the list box portion, but only in the edit 
box portion even after calling SetCurSel().  Is there a way to have the 
matching list box item highlighted as well?

Here's the code segment in question:

void CTCodeView::OnEditchangeTCode() 
//CBN_EDITCHANGE is sent after windows updates the disply in the edit box 
//of the CComboBox object, so we can get the keyboard input
//from the box right away; the TCode control has the focus
// The progression for comparing the entry with the list is sequential 
//and cummulative - meaning first we compare the character 1, then 1 and 2, 
//then 1, 2, and 3, etc.
 	//initialize the temporary int index
 	m_nIndex = 0;
 	//read the TCode

	//accumulate the keystrokes
	m_myTempString += m_pSet->m_TCode;

	//now we need to see if there are any items in 
 	//our TCode list that match this designation
 	//if so, we will open the drop list and highlight
 	//the corresponding item for the user
 	if ( ((m_nIndex = m_TCodeComboControl.SelectString(m_nIndex,          
myTempString)) != CB_ERR))
 	//we have a match, so open the drop list and select the item

IE8 privacy question
I am running XP-Pro SP3 and considering upgrading from IE7 to IE8. I have read all the feature and benefit articles from MS, but have one question that remains unanswered. In IE8 there is mention of being able to restore previously viewed websites or something to that effect. I think this is on a drop down menu somewhere. 1) Does In-private viewing prevent this? 2) Does manually deleting your complete browsing history clear this? 3) Is there a registry entry that can prevent this action? 4) Is there a group policy change that can prevent this action?

Microsoft Query question
I am trying to use Microsoft Query to get data from my SQL 2000 databases. The problem is that I have a few columns with names that conflict with keywords (like Identity). (Yes. I kow that keywords should be avoided but it is done and cannot be changed.) This is causing a keyword syntax error within the Query application. Oddly enough, even if I do not select the column the error still appears. And when you look at all the columns available, the keyword named column shows up in boldface. When I am doing queries in other programs I put square ("[ ]") brackets around column and table...
