Open its properties in the dialog editor, select the ID for the MENU
resource in the box that is labeled something like "Menu:".

You can use the resource editor to attach a menu to a dialog, or you can do
so in code with something like:

 // In OnInitDialog
 CMenu menu;
 if (menu.LoadMenu(IDR_MENU))
    CRect rcPre;
    if (SetMenu(&menu))
       // Window assumes ownership of HMENU object, so release it.

       // Resize the dialog window. The client area has shrunk
       // to accommodate the menu bar.
       CRect rcPost;
       CRect rcWnd;
       rcWnd.bottom += rcPre.Height()-rcPost.Height();
