Um...well it depends exactly what compiler you are on about, and what context really...

If by some amazing chance you are using vc/mfc, and are specifically refering to the doc/view update routine, then they are simply user defined values to let the view know something about the reason for the call from the document....normally defined as enums or hash defined...

Otherwise, I haven't a clue what you are talking about...so can you give me some more information?!
