Hi!
char sz[200] = "Hi!";
CString str;
str = sz;
or your char array contains zeros?

Or you can do it in the constuctor:
char sz[200] = "Hi!";
CString str ( sz );

Just one less line :)

Or you can also use the Format method fo CString. that would help u, if u wanna concat other string too:
char sz[200] = "xyz";
CString str;
str.Format("%s", sz);//would copy the contents of sz to str

//or to concat other string
str.Format("Other String and my data = %s", str);

>> str.Format("%s", sz);

IMHO this is pretty bloated (and slow) for this task.
"str = sz;" does the job much faster, as pointed out by migel.
