I want to connect a recordset to a dialog, but I failed to get the active document.  The code is as follows:

BOOL CPlotDialog::OnInitDialog()
   CFyp1Doc * pDoc = (CFyp1Doc *)            GetParentFrame()->GetActiveDocument());
   m_pDialogSet = &(pDoc->m_dialogSet);


GetParentFrame() is successful, but GetActiveDocument() returns NULL.... so program terminates with error...

Tons of Thanks!!
