hi,
I have struct like this
struct CAdoFieldInfo
{
      // The name of field
      char m_strName[30];
      // the field type
      short m_nType;
      // The field size
      long m_lSize;
            // the attributes of field
      long m_lAttributes;
      // the ordinal position of current field
      short m_nOrdinalPosition;
      //
      BOOL m_bRequired;  
      BOOL m_bAllowZeroLength;
      long m_lCollatingOrder;  
};

I want to define my fields like this

{ 'fieldname',adchar,20,YESNO    }

You could do that like
CAdoFieldInfo afi = { "fieldname",adchar,20,YESNO, 42, TRUE, TRUE, MyOrder};

Or, alternatively, you can set the members individually:
CAdoFieldInfo afi;
 
strcpy(afi.m_strName,"fieldname");
afi.m_nType = addchar;
afi.m_lSize = 20;
afi.m_lAttributes = YESNO;
afi.m_nOrdinalPosition = 42;
afi.m_bRequired = TRUE;
afi.m_bAllowZero = TRUE;
afi.m_lCollatingOrder = MyOrder;

CAdoFieldInfo afi = { "fieldname",adchar,20,YESNO, 42, TRUE, TRUE, MyOrder};
is afi holds only one fieldname or set of fields?

CAdoFieldInfo afi = { "fieldname",adchar,20,YESNO, 42, TRUE, TRUE, MyOrder;
                                 "fieldname2",adchar,20,YESNO, 42, TRUE, TRUE, MyOrder;
                                 "fieldname3",adchar,20,YESNO, 42, TRUE, TRUE, MyOrder;

Fot the latter one, you need an array of structs, e.g.
CAdoFieldInfo afi[3] = 
{
  { "fieldname",adchar,20,YESNO, 42, TRUE, TRUE, MyOrder},
  { "fieldname2",adchar,20,YESNO, 42, TRUE, TRUE, MyOrder},
  { "fieldname3",adchar,20,YESNO, 42, TRUE, TRUE, MyOrder}
};

Hm, I am afraid I won't be able to clarify that in a single comment. Check out these articles, both come with full source code:
