Al was right, it was 25...in trying to solve my problem I even coaxed a 15
(segment loader error) out of it.  

Programming since 84 and I still am so quick to assume there is something
wrong with a printer driver or something outside of my work.  Makes a guy
wonder about himself. 

It went like this: 
Dim 2 FirstString$(12)
Dim 2 OtherString$(38)
Dim x,y

feed it something like
x=999  (Didn't happen this simply)
Feed otherString$(y)=FirstString(x)

Wonder why memory has been hosed.

Write to a bunch of busy folks and let them waste time on it.

Stare at several fns until the light comes on and then blush.

Getting to x=999 was one of those if, then if, if then and if sorta things,
rare enough for the thing to run since 10/14/97 in beta without showing up.  

Thanks to all,
