CListView Problem

I am trying to use a list view in report style but I cannot get any text to appear under any of my columns?  I know the list control is populated with items ( I've checked the getItemText to be sure), but I can't seem to show the list in report form.  The view seems to know they are there( 'cause the scrollbars are defined)..  

All I am doing is Inserting columns by
cListView.InsertColum(nIndex,"Header",LVCFMT_TEXT,nWidth,0);

Then Inserting Item by
cListView.InsertItem(nIndex,text(nIndex));

All of this is done in the InitialUpdate Procedure...

What Am I missing?

 // In OnInitialUpdate you must first get a pointer to the CListCtrl in the CListView:
  CListCtrl &m_listctrl=GetListCtrl();

  // Define some columns
  m_listctrl.InsertColumn(0,"1. column",LVCFMT_LEFT,400);
  m_listctrl.InsertColumn(1,"2. column",LVCFMT_LEFT,400);

I have a reference to the listcontrol and my columns are defined... i can see the column headers....
I guess my label was bad -- cListView is defined as
CListCtrl& cListView = GetListCtrl();

Haven't you looked at my above code exactly:

Try this:
m_listctrl.InsertColumn(0,"1. column",LVCFMT_LEFT,400);
m_listctrl.InsertColumn(1,"2. column",LVCFMT_LEFT,400);

I figured it out -- I converted my standard view from the base of CView to CListView -- but neglected to change the base class in all instances - I only changed it in the class constructor
