This may be a very newbie question.

I got a program from somebody. He had its initialization to run his program but never bothered to save the data for later use. Now I wanted to add the New, Open, Save, and Close to it, so I add OnNewDocument ahead of his program. It crashed every time I ran it.

Shall I include his initialization in the OnNewDocument? If I can not separate the initialization part from his code, e.g., they come in as dll, what shall do?

Thanks in advance
