Thanks for your response.
To answer your questions:
1. Can't you access this control by it's title.
No, I can't because this control has no title.
2. Do I know why this is the case and is this a bug.
Well, the controls I am talking about are all controls of the same
type. They are ole controls used in MFC project. When you have project
wizard generate the proper code for you, it will add the control with
control ID = 0.
So it seams that either control id is not obligatory for a control or
ole controls are handled differently.
