We finally understand what's going on. The NOVA program has 16K of COMMON declared. Because Comet16 passed COMMON and LOCAL between programs as just one huge chunk of data this facilitated the passing of COMMON from the parent program, thru NOVA, to the lookup program. This doesn't work in Comet32 because each COMMON variable is passed individually and must match in its declaration. This is exactly what Robert was saying I was just too dense to get it until now. So... my first thought was for him to try using SetGlobal / GetGlobal to pass COMMON. Jim and I will also discuss how we might come up with a scheme to save / restore the COMMON automatically. Anybody got any other ideas?
