    csRegExtractFileRemote = "c:\\SW\\RemoteFile\\sample.txt";

    if ( cfSAP.GetStatus(csRegExtractFileRemote, cfsStatus))
    // open up the Extract file and create an archive for it
    cout<<" Opening Extract file "<<endl;
    if( !cfSAP.Open( csRegExtractFileRemote, CFile::modeRead, &ef ) )
    printf("File %S could not be opened - %S",csRegExtractFileRemote,ef.m_cause);
    //cout<<"File '%s' could not be opened - %s", csRegExtractFileRemote, ef.m_cause);
    return FALSE;

    CArchive caSAP( &cfSAP, CArchive::load );

    1) Please use code tags when posting code. Go Advanced, select the code and click '#'

    2) As you are trying to use the static version of GetStatus (without first opening the file), try

    if ( CFile::GetStatus((LPCTSTR)csRegExtractFileRemote, cfsStatus))
    Note that GetStatus requires the file name as type LPCTSTR.
