Hi,

Map the SetTitle() function to the Doc class and modify the string there, Ur SetTitle() function will look like

void CMDIDoc::SetTitle(LPCTSTR lpszTitle)
{      
      lpszTitle = "HI";
      CDocument::SetTitle(lpszTitle);
}

If more than one view and U want to identify them differenty, then assign some specific values to each view like 1, 2, 3..... Then in the SetTitle function modify the string depending on that value in a switch statement.

Hope this helps.
