Visual Studio Help

Hi, I am new to Visual Studio as I have been compiling my code and executing it in unix/linux. This is a very stupid problem i have.. I have no idea how to pass in the command line argument for Main when I execute the program.
For example:
I have a piece of code goes like this
 
int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {
ifsteam infile;
infile.open(argv[1]);
infile.close();
}

I know how to compile it using Visual Studio .Net, but I dont know how to Execute it with a given argument to the main function.
Say maybe I want the argv[1] to be something like Myfile.txt
How to I pass that Myfile.txt to Visual Studio so that it would recognize it as if i were to type : Myprogram Myfile.txt

thanks a lot

Project - Settings - Debug. Write Myfile.txt in Program arguments edit box.

Sorry, it was for Visual Studio 6. In .NET:

Right-click on the project name in Solution Explorer - select Properties. Select Configuration Properties - Debugging. Fill Command Arguments edit box.

Write number of arguments in the edit box:

file1.txt file2.txt

In this case argv[1] = "file1.txt", argv[2] = "file2.txt"
