How to convert from CString to BSTR

I need to pass a CString varaible to a BSTR variable. How do I do that?

The old line was:
BSTR bstr = SysAllocString(L"some text string");

How can I replace the old value to my CString value:
CString str = "abc";
BSTR bstr = ???

You could eithre use

CString str = "abc";
BSTR bstr = str.AllocSysString ();

or

CString str = "abc";
BSTR bstr;

str.SetSysString ( &bstr);
