I am implementing a find and replace feature in a project (MDI) and I decided to give the option of searching through all open views.  How can I gain access to each view sequentially?

This code will walk through all open views in a app:

POSITION pos = AfxGetApp()->GetFirstDocTemplatePosition();
    CDocTemplate* pTemplate = AfxGetApp()->GetNextDocTemplate(pos);
    POSITION docpos = pTemplate->GetFirstDocPosition();
        CDocument* pDoc = pTemplate->GetNextDoc(docpos);
        POSITION viewpos = pDoc->GetFirstViewPosition();
            CView* pView = pDoc->GetNextView(viewpos);

            // Do your stuff
