This is a bug in the automation code for the DialogID property. Whenever any custom enum definitions appear before the AFX IDD enum in the header file, the Add Member Variable Wizard cannot find the dialog resource ID in the first enum definition in the Microsoft Foundation Class Library (MFC) CDialog class and an error message is displayed.
Move any custom enum definitions after the IDD enum so that the IDD enum appears first in the file if you search from the top down.
The following code example shows how to add the custom enum definition after the IDD enum definitions:
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
