What is wrong with the code here? the part on: (CString str = col + " =  ' "+  dlg.m_filterValue + ' ";
Written something about
{ error C2679: binary '+' : no operator defined which takes a right-hand operand of type 'class CEdit' (or there is no acceptable conversion
void CSignatureDatabaseView::DoFilter(CString col)
    CFilterDlg dlg;
    int result = dlg.DoModal();
    if (result == IDOK)
        CString str = col + " = '"+  dlg.m_filterValue + "'";
        m_pSet->m_strFilter = str;
        int recCount = m_pSet->GetRecordCount();
        if (recCount == 0)
            MessageBox("No matching records.");
            m_pSet->m_strFilter = "";

Your 'm_filterValue' has been selected as a 'CEdit' control, not as a 'CString' as you expect in
the line which causes the error. Either you select it as a 'CString' (by deleting the member
variable and adding it as a 'CString' exchange type) or you replace
m_filterValue with m_filterValue.GetText().
(BTW: you should post MFC questions in the MFC section)
