> I converted an application from FoxPro 2.5 to VFP6 almost everything works fine but I’m having problems with the functions and the variables on some of the prg files with the procedures I had no problem, all I did was Do procedure in “file where procedure is” but I don’t know what to do for the variables and the functions. I tried set procedure for the functions but it didn’t work. I would really appreciate if someone could tell me how to get them to work.

Adalberto,

If you have all of your functions defined in a single .prg() it becomes quite simple.
SET PROCEDURE TO [Path2\MyFunctionFile.prg] ADDITIVE
This places your functions into memory and VFP will be able to access them with
MyResult = MyFunction(Parmameter1,Parameter2,...)
For that matter, you can also place all of your procedures in that same file and now you will not need the IN clause in your DO commands. On the other hand, if your function is defined in the calling .PRG, you don't need to SET PROCEDURE TO anything. You can just
MyResult = MyFunction(Parmameter1,Parameter2,...)
