I did all of that, none of which has helped in the least. The steps 
in the conversion docs don't even address what I am doing so they 
aren't a lot of help. And needing more practice after writing code 
for that last 21 years isn't an option.

I suspect the way arrays are stored in memory (or simple vars for 
that matter) may have changed with FB3. I commonly blockmove data 
from array to array or var to var or memory to where I want it. Does 
anyone know if all the variables in a GLOBALS file is stored the same 
way in memory as the old FBII did it?
