You have to return the three values as one variable (you'll want to concatenate them into a single string), then you'll have to PARSE them out from the one variable.

In the called function - return a list of variables
In the calling code, these will be space seperated, so parse them

Hi,
You can use EXPOSE in the function definition to pass the callers vars by referrence
