pdataLength the size of the setting data handle, in bytes.

Returns a long indicating success (0) or failure (!0) of the function.


If the setting does not exist, a new setting will NOT be generated. Use CDSetDocumentSetting with an empty setting string to create a null setting.

When the DLL is done using the handle, it must be returned to ChemDraw using CDReturnHandle.

If an error is returned, the DLL may call CDGetApplicationErrorString for a string explaining the error.
