Hi,
How to correct the last line below?

struct nameval
{
	char fld_nm[100];
	wchar_t fld_nm_t[100];
	int fld_len;
	int fld_val;
};
nameval binrec;

...

int main()
{
    std::vector<nameval> records;
    int cnt;
	for (cnt=0;cnt<20000;cnt++)
	{
		nameval val={0};
		...
		val.fld_nm_t=val.fld_nm;
		...

You are wanting to convert a Unicode to ansi.
See:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8tdk45ff.aspx
for the wctomb function which will do this for you.  There is example code there.
