I am trying to convert a int into a CString and when i do that i get symbols.

This is what i am using

int labelid = 18548;
CString labelname = "holder";
labelname += " - ";
labelname += CString(labelid);

when doing this i do not append the number.

>>labelname += CString(labelid);

That won't work - however, you could use the 'Format' member of CString:

CString num;

num.Format ( "%d", labelid);

labelname += num;
