I have data from a CComBSTR with size 1,260,082 length.  I assigned it to a CString and it crash.
I thought a CString can handle INT_MAX (2,147,483,647) characters.

Can somebody tell me how to assign a CComBSTR to CString this size.

USES_CONVERSION;
...
CComBSTR bstrInnerHTML;
pBody->get_innerHTML(&bstrInnerHTML);
CString  str = OLE2A(bstrInnerHTML); <<<<<crash right here

what if you try with BSTR:

         BSTR bstrInnerHTML;

         pBody->get_innerHTML(&bstrInnerHTML);

         CString str=bstrInnerHTML;  // OR CString str(bstrInnerHTML);

Mahesh,

I am trying your suggestion.  

Is it true that CString object can handle over 2Million characters?

I have not seen a limit specified, so the implication is that the limit is the lessor of memory size and the maximum value of an 'int' because notice that CString::GetLength() returns an int. and int would be 32 bits in win32 right? that sure goes a long way at least 4 GB I think ...
