I presume, you have created a dailog based application, and placed some
controls on it.
To add members corresponding to the controls, you placed,
1. Goto Class wizard ( Ctl +W )
2. It will prompt you to create a new dialog class for the dialog resource
you created. So create a new class for the dialog.
3. Select the "Member Variables" Tab. There you can see the IDs of all the
controls that you placed in the dialog.
4. Select the ID, and click "Add Variable" button, A dialog will popup where
you can select the type of the variuable you need to create ( Whether you
want to create a  variable for the control or for the text in the control. )

5. Give the variable name
and thats it.

Yes, those are the steps, but the 'Add Variable' button is greyed out.  How do you make it active?

Enter Key Jump controls
Hello. I have a Dialog and several Edit Box. when i press control Key my program stops. I'd like to press enter key and jump to the next edit box or another control. Any help?? >when i press control Key my program stops I am not sure why this is happening? You could add PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg) to the Dialog Then change the keys, or move to some other control, or do whatever you want to do.

Copy a currency value from one control to another

Vlookup with variable column reference
Help! I am trying to link two workbooks with a vlookup that searches for the last populated columns' entry in a range (see example below). 27/03 28/03 29/03 30/03 31/03 Data 6 4 Is there a way of doing this in a function? In a macro I would use the Range().End(xltoleft) code but I cannot figure out how to do something similar in a worksheet function. I basically want the lookup column to start at day 31 and make its way backwards until it finds a value. Another issue is that the seemingly blank cells contain formula - ie. not empty. Any ideas?

Adding to an imported table
I am a beginning Access user. When I order items, I am able to import the order information (info about each specific ordered item) into an Access database. I have figured out that I can add information from subsequent orders to the same big table (and could use a query to ID stuff from specific orders if necessary). I want to mark items received or not received. If I do this in the table, I mess up the column names and importing the order information doesn't work (at least, it doesn't work with my limited knowledge).

Adding custom fields to dynamically created controls.
I created a custom Outlook (2003) form that imports data from Access to populate user defined fields and create additional controls based on the number of records in an Access query. Everything works fine except the data the user enters for the dynamically created controls don't hold their value when the form is sent. I am quessing that is because there is no user defined fields bound to them. (how do I do this) I have been looking on the net but cannot find anything close enough.

Bug: (MFC 7.1) Paste into CRichEditView copied from other RichEdit control
Recently, I was helping someone figure out a problem in an MFC application recently upgraded to VC 7.1 (MFC 7.1) from VC 6.0 (MFC 6.0). While running on Windows XP, if you copied text from another CRichEditCtrl, CRichEditView, or another application using RichEdit like WordPad or Word, pasting what you've copied into a CRichEditView would paste nothing. When googling to try to find clues, most of the time there was either no response to the question, or the work around was to change the "copy" end that you controlled, and only put CF_TEXT on the clipboard.

I would change it to Allstate Insurance (before accepting)and the downloaded name would automatically pop into the Payee Name Variation box when I acceped the transaction.

automatically adding data to list
I can't seem to find any reference to this so maybe someone can point me in the right direction. I have a spreadsheet I have produced and would like to have the facility so that if I enter a figure in one cell, then the value is automatically appended to the bottom of another list. ie. New data added to cell 1A automatically is copied to the first blank cell in the column 2B or 3B or 4B etc. This could work backwards for me too if it is easier ie. Data entered at the bottom of a list (2B...3B....4B....etc) overwrites the remote copy (1A) of the value in the cell above. Is this somethin...

Clearing variables
Hello, In my current project I have two variables that I initially set: MaxPages = Selection.Information(wdNumberOfPagesInDocument) CurPage = Selection.Information(wdActiveEndPageNumber) These are sent inside a Do Until loop that quits when CurPage = MaxPages. The first time I ran the macro it ran smoothly just like it was supposed to. The next time I ran the macro. Nothing happened. It occurred to me that maybe CurPage and MaxPages were still set and since they are equal the macro quits. This same behavior happened even after I got out of Word (2007) and back in again...
