MS FLEXGRID ADDITEM METHOD

I AM HAVING PROBLEMS PASSING THE SECOND PARAMETER (INDEX) TO THE FLEXGRID ADDITEM METHOD.
IN VB5 IT IS AN OPTIONAL PARAMETER. HOW SHOULD I PASS IT IN VC++? WHERE CAN I FIND DOCUMENTION ABOUT USING THIS ACTIVE X CONTROL WITH MS VISUAL C++?

When you open the Components and Controls Gallery and select Microsoft FlexGrid Control, press the More Info button to open the help file.

All of the documentation for the MSFlexGrid that I have been able to find has been for Visual Basic.  AddItem inserts a row at a given index (you supply).  If you want to add a row to the end of the grid, make the call like this -

m_Grid.AddItem("Column0Text\tColumn1Text\tColumn2Text",m_GridControl.GetRows());

Tabs inside the string separate the text by column.

m_GridControl is a control variable of type CMSFlexGrid,
usually I just use the wizard to create this.

Correction to the proposed answer:

The parameter is supposed to be of type const struct tagVARIANT &
You can look this structure up in the help files.
Proper usage would be this

// Declare a variable of type tagVARIANT
tagVARIANT RowIndexToAdd;

RowIndexToAdd.vt = VT_I4;       // variable is a 4-byte integer type
RowIndex.lVal = m_Grid.GetRows();     // Gets next row, will increase # of rows
                                                         // You can insert whichever row you want to add

// Now make call to AddItem passing the tagVARIANT
m_Grid.AddItem(csFormattedString, RowIndexToAdd);
