the table i am using is actually using an "occurs depending on...." clause that's why the table wasn't initialized..
Then why is that not what you posted. . .
There is still no depending in the code you posted. If you are going to print from the table, it had to get initialized/loaded somewhere
i'm sorry, i was in a hurry in writing the sample code.. here is, generally, what i'll be using..
You've wasted far more time with this "scurry" than if you'd taken just a bit more time and posted properly. Do not post generally
! Post what you have and what doesn't work or you don't understand. In addition to wasting time, it is rather rude to those who might be willing to help if you cannot be bothered to post your actual code/question. Keep in mind, you do not need to be in a hurry. If we could all be in the same room and talk things thru in real-time, "hurry" might not matter so much as corrections/mis-understandings could be recognized and handled "on the spot". Going thru the forum with all of us in different time zones, it makes accuracy/completeness much more important.
and the perform varying statement i'm using is under a perform until clause with one of the condition terminating the program if it has reached the end of the file.
It is good to terminate the program at end of file, but that has nothing do to with termininating the "print loop" properly.
will this still yield an error?
As coded, the print loop will probably process incorrectly.
