Hi,

I got that feeling in my gut if you move off of the machine you are working on the issue will
go away.

The only other thing that I can think about and believe me this one drove another developer nuts.
He had a prg with about 50-60 lines of code in the routine. Very, very strange happenings.. like
actual code lines failing to execute but no errors.

I r emoted in and copied and pasted the code into NotePad so there would be no unseen characters or
the like embedded in the code. Saved code in NotePad and reopened NotePad and the code.

Pasted the code from NotePad into a new prg and ran it. Code worked perfectly. Ran the old prg
and code failed. Brought both old and new prgs up in two windows side by side and line for line
you could not perceive any differences.

Interesting ay!
