How do I find the actual values of error codes?

I'd like to ask a question about the InitializeSecurityContext function in the security section of the Platform SDK. If the function fails, it returns error codes -- e.g., SEC_E_INSUFFICIENT_MEMORY. I need to know the actual values (should be of type int., I believe) of the error codes. Is there a way to find that out? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
You can find the actual values for all return values in Windows by searching for the define in WinError.h, which you'll find in the Platform SDK or with your copy of Visual Studio.
