1. I get this error message for the following lines:
    "Error:var;n the value of n specified is too big.".

Can someone tell me what is wrong?

The error is occurring for at least these 3 types of lines
    - IF gdetailflag2%=0 THEN namedisk=vendordisk ELSE
namedisk=customerdisk
    - customerdisk=vendordisk
    - customerdisk=customerdisk2

In the globals files they were defines as follows. This is a 3,293 byte
record:
    DIM RECORD xNameRecord
    ...dim variables
    DIM END RECORD .NameRecord

    DIM vendordisk.NameRecord
    DIM customerdisk.NameRecord
    DIM namedisk.NameRecord
    DIM customerdisk3.NameRecord
    DIM vendordisk3.NameRecord
    DIM vendordisk2.NameRecord:
    DIM customerdisk2.NameRecord

-------------------------------------------------------------------
2. I get this error message for the following lines:
    "Error:an XRef pointer variable can no longer be dimensioned before
the XREF
    array".

Can someone tell me what is wrong?

The error is occurring at the XREF Orderlist3 line but not at the other
similar lines (the original DIM OrderList3& has been removed)
    DIM RECORD xheaderlist
   ...dim variables
    DIM END RECORD .headerlist

    XREF@ OrderList.headerlist(100000)
    XREF@ OrderList2.headerlist(100000)
    XREF@ OrderList3.headerlist(100000)

-----------------------------------------------------------------
3. I get this error message for the following lines:
    "Error:an XRef pointer variable can no longer be dimensioned before
the XREF
    array".

Can someone tell me what is wrong?

The error is occurring at this line (the original DIM Report& has been
removed)
   XREF@ 9 Report$(10000,9)



Thank you!
