Hi Debra, 

You can use following method to clear the text.

First get the item by calling GetDlgItem method. For example

  CWnd* pWindow = GetDlgItem(IDC_Label_STATIC);

Then Setting its text my using the following code

 pWindow->SetDlgItemTextW(IDC_Label_STATIC, _T(""));

Other way to do this is to declare the variable as static, then initializing it as static control and then changing the value.

CStatic *Static_text;  

Static_text = new CStatic; 

Static_text->Create("I'm a static", WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE,

         CRect(3, 4, 11, 18), this, 900); 

 void CPlotDlg::OnBnClickedButton1()

{

Static_text->SetWindowText("I'm changed");

}

I hope it will help you.

Thank you
