Function has no return address

A member function "recalculate()" of my class "Calc" CANNOT RETURN to where it was called (another function within Calc called recalculate()).  During a normal execution, I get the message, "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down."  During a step by step trace, I find there is an Access Violation at the end of recalculate(), and "the current function has no return address".  What is going on?

NOTE: At the beginning of a "run to breakpoint" the computer tells me of many "no matching symbolic information found" problems with .DLL files.  Also, there is "no shared menu for document template #130."

You don't have debug information in your .dll files.  If you are using VC++, you need to rebuild each project using debug information (and browse, too, if you like) and then try again.  I find that it sometimes helps to rename the release versions to prevent the files from being confused too.

Another thing- if it cannot return to where it was called, it sounds like you have a syntax error, but you'd have to post the code for me to be sure.  Make sure that the calc:: is in front of all the functions.  Otherwise, the name mangling will prevent the code from knowing where to go.

No matter what, post more code and I can tell for sure.
