Eric,

I have a form that has the same problem with the "Syntax error." It was created in VFP7. I've already rebuilt the project and looked for any syntax issues but I have not been able to pinpoint the cause. When I step through the code the syntax error message pops up after the form's Load event. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Neil
