The COleVariant constructor, COleVariant(long lSrc, VARTYPE vtSrc = VT_I4), does not correctly initialize its members. As a result, when you call the CDaoTableDef::CreateField member function, you receive a CDaoException exception with the following call stack:
KERNEL32.DLL!RaiseException msvcr70.dll!_CxxThrowException DaoBug.exe!AfxThrowDaoException DaoBug.exe!AfxDaoCheck DaoBug.exe!CDaoTableDef::CreateField
This problem occurs because the constructor initializes members based on an uninitialized member. As a result, the vt member of COleVariant may be initialized to the VT_UI4 or the VT_HRESULT variant type instead of the VT_I4 variant type.
