Look for "serialization: Serializing an Object" in the Help.
Toperators ">>" and "<<" or the function "serialize" has to be overwritten.

I think you already knew this and your question refers to an random access for serialized objects.

Because of the serialized pointers the only way I can see is to store each object (or group of objects) that are independent of each other separate in one file and add an index to refer to the objects.

If all you want to do is to serialize in a way that's different from the CArchive << and >> operators you don't need to override anything.  Just use the CArchive Read and Write functions to access the raw data in the way you need.  If you already have a file handler for the protocol, you can also use the CArchive GetFile function.

You should use
      virtual BOOL OnOpenDocument(LPCTSTR lpszPathName);
      virtual BOOL OnSaveDocument(LPCTSTR lpszPathName);
in your document class.
in CDocument these functions open an CArchive and call Serialize(CArchive& ar).
So at this point you can implement all you need for your files.
