I bet that is inside a class CFORMAPPDoc? you do not have the repeat the 'struct' in C++ just DataRecord * FindARecord(int iRecordNumber); will do.
 in the .cpp i declare this:

 struct DataRecord *CFORMAPPDoc::FindARecord(int iRecordNumber){

I suspect that you declared 'DataRecord' within the scope of class CFORMAPPDoc Thus change this to: CFORMAPPDoc :: DataRecord *CFORMAPPDoc::FindARecord(int iRecordNumber){ That might help. Jan
    struct DataRecord * MyData = new struct DataRecord;
 //some code to find the record
    if( rc == true )
      return MyData;
    else
      return NULL;
 }

Thanks Jan, That's the ticket. Too many subtle differences in declaration syntax for my two brain cells to get...repetition is the key to learning eh? Michael
