You may add/ remove views using:   CDocument::AddView()  or

You may have a handler of your document class invoked by a menu entry or a toolbar button (or both). Then you create a  new view and remove the old and add the new. To show the view use ShowWindow(SW_SHOW).

Good Luck!

look at the chkbook example - two (different) views on one document displayed at the same time.

Follow the chkbook example but create a third view as well.
(Do you not understand a part of what the multiple view creation there is doing?)
