Just sO

I have some field H,L,R,B,O,E with a prefix
or suffix.

Found that LC didn't like a field name "sO" and
wondered why. Don't think "sO" or "so" is a
reserved word.

Ideas please.

Exe not working

A problem I've seen mentioned previously but one which
I've not experienced...

Code which works in the IDE doesn't work when compiled.

Clues appreciated.

LC 7.1.2

Update: It's not now working in the IDE so guess it's
something I can fix.

Re: repeat with ....

Thanks bogs.

Did search my previous post without success.
I think it may have been a subsidiary question
in a post not related to this question.

repeat with ....

I recall that I asked this question previously but can't
find the answer...

Repeat with a long line of field names so want to separate into
shorter lines. It requires a "/" but is it ...name,name," / ?

Haven't been able to get the right combination (again).

Function Call

I have a function "Clear Numbers" which can be run either from a button "Clear Numbers" or be called from another function. I want to warn the user when the function is called from the "Clear Numbers" button but not when it's called from another function. Recall but can't find mention of getting the...

Re: Location Location

Have a look at the pic and note that the bottom lines
of the text are obscured by the "User Input" field
even though the scroll-bar is fully down.

Re: Sort

As usual I nearly got there apart from a couple of things
now sorted.

I replaced tabs with commas but

---got "numeric" and "ascending" in the wrong order
---sorted from item 3 to 10 instead of 10 down to 3

Thank you all for your help.

My test stack is attached.

Re: The hilited line

One word of German that stuck in my mind
from an attempt to learn another language
was "strassenbarnhaltensteller" (the spelling
is just from memory and is no doubt wrong)
but it means "tram stop".

Re: The hilited line

Yes, and to compound my error I used
"hilitedLine" rather that "hilitedLines"!

The hilited line

I have three scrolling fields. When I click on a line in field 1 then on a line in field 2 the line in field 1 remains hilited which seems to cause some confusion in the code to put the hilited line into another field. The Dictionary says that the hilitedLine is a comma-delimited list of numbers so ...
