    Unhappy error C2064: term does not evaluate to a function taking 1 arguments

    Hi if any1 can help me i have the error:

    error C2064: term does not evaluate to a function taking 1 arguments

    for the following line and i have other lines simular with the same errors:

    (*file).publication.Add_publisher((_wtoi (readData[1]));
    i still get the same errors if i have the code as:

    The information you have given is insufficient to solve the problem. Have a look at this link for information on C2064 that can get you started.
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    What do you expect me to do? Read your mind? You have shown the offending line, but not the declarations and types of things referenced in that line.

    From the offending line, you apparently think (*file).publication.Add_publisher is a member function that accepts one argument. The compiler thinks otherwise.

    From that, I can guess that Add_publisher is possibly a pointer to a function, or a pointer to a member function.

    There are many possibilities though, and I'm not a mindreader, so I can't guess. It would be easier if you looked up what Add_publisher is ( for example, (*file).publication is presumably an instance of a class type, and that class type might well declare something named Add_publisher). Then you can work out for yourself what the problem is.

    (*file). is a pointer that points to the class publication and the variable in that class Add_publisher, here is not the error the error is with in what follows that they ((_wtoi (readData[1])); or the (readData[1]);...............readData is declared as a CString param = readData sorry to keep inconveniencing you, thanks

    If Add_publisher is a variable (or a member of the class) then, unless it is an object that has an operator(), it should not be treated like a function.

    By supplying the (readData[1]) you are treating Add_publisher like a function. Even though it is not a function.

    I also can't help but notice your parentheses don't match.
