I have yet to get a text based error code for opening a file. Here is the simplified code:



m_definition_file_name = Select_Definition_File.GetPathName();
m_definition_file_name += "x";  // make the file name bad
m_definition_file.Open( m_definition_file_name, CFile::modeRead );

//  error_number = GetLastError();  // restore to verify error code is 2
get_error_message.GetErrorMessage( ptr_error_text, ERROR_MAX, NULL );
final_error_message = char_error_text;  // says no error


The Open method does not throw an exception. When GetLasError() is used, the error code is 2 (two).
The GetErrorMesssage yields No error returned, which is incorrect. The file could not be opened because it does not exist.

GetErrorMessage(...) is has three arguments about formatting the error message, but the error message is not an argument. I presume it gets the error message like GetLastError() does, but this appears incorrect.

How do I get a text string describing this error?
Thanks for your time
