external link encounter when linking CDocument, App

GuiderView.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "public: void __thiscall CGuiderApp::setPointDetails(class CString,class CString,class CString,class PointListStorage *)" (?setPointDetails@CGuiderApp@@QAEXVCString@@V2@1PAVPointListStorage@
@@Z) referenced in function "public: void __thiscall CGuiderView::AddPoint(class CString,class CString,class CString)" (?AddPoint@CGuiderView@@QAEXVCString@@00@Z)
X86Rel/Guider.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
Error executing link.exe.


I have got this compile error. Anyone knows how to resolve this?
The error occurs with this line:
     theApp.setDetails( a, b, c, GetDocument() );

//the method in theApp that is being called
void CTestApp::setDetails( const CString &a, CString b, c, ListStorage* pDoc )
{
      pDoc->setDetails( a, b, c);
}

The error is referencing 'CGuiderApp::setPointDetails' in function 'CGuiderView::AddPoint'.  Where are they since the lines of code you list are in CTestApp and have completely different method names involved?  Do you have a cut-and-paste problem somewhere or an incorrect header included?

Sorry. Cause I edited the codes that I pasted. Therefore, the error goes like this.


TestView.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "public: void __thiscall CTestApp::setPointDetails(class CString,class CString,class CString,class PointListStorage *)" (?setPointDetails@CTestApp@@QAEXVCString@@V2@1PAVListStorage@
@@Z) referenced in function "public: void __thiscall CTestView::AddPoint(class CString,class CString,class CString)" (?AddPoint@CTestView@@QAEXVCString@@00@Z)
X86Rel/Test.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
Error executing link.exe.

And yes, the following line of code lies in the CTestView class.
   theApp.setDetails( a, b, c, GetDocument() );

Closer.  Now it is complaining that there is no symbol 'setPointDetails' in CTestApp.  If your first post was correct, it looks like you changed it to just 'setDeatils'?  Where are you referencing 'setPointDetails' in your code?  The line you list is 'setDetails' which is not the same.  What does the CTestView::AddPoint method look like?
