Hi Jim,

From the FB3 Manual, it appears that both the COORDINATE x,y and COORDINATE
WINDOW statments are no longer needed/used.

By the way, I hope you're just trying to solve ONE error at a time. As others
have noted on this list, it is not too infrequent that the first error is
responsible for quite a number of the ensuing errors.
