    sending a string as keyboard keystrokes wrongly

    as u can see from my following code, KeyBoadText() is a function that accepts a string and then type the string out as if it was typed using the keyboard. but now i am having problem when my typetext = "abc"
    instead of typing "abc", it types "123". how can i solve this?

    Code:
     void CStocksmsDlg::KeyBoardText(CString typetext)
    {
    	
    	int text_len = typetext.GetLength();
    
    
     for(int i =0; i<text_len; i++)
     {
    	    INPUT Input[2];
      KEYBDINPUT ki;
    
      ki.dwFlags = KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY | 0;
      ki.time = 0;
      ki.wScan = 0;
      ki.wVk = typetext.GetAt(i);
      Input[0].type = INPUT_KEYBOARD;
      Input[0].ki = ki;
      ki.dwFlags = KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY | KEYEVENTF_KEYUP;
      ki.dwFlags = KEYEVENTF_KEYUP;
      Input[1].type = INPUT_KEYBOARD;
      Input[1].ki = ki;
      SendInput( 2, Input, sizeof(INPUT) );
    }
    
    }
