I have the same version. I use COMPILE 0, _pointerVars Sometimes i add _appendRes, depending on what i do. I don't use _macsBugLabels (only when i have problems). I don't do INIT's or things like that, so maybe it can't be applied to what you do. Good luck, SG >Or maybe it depends on the COMPILE statement.
