Just sO

Post by RossG » Thu Aug 31, 2017 10:32 pm

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.

No problem naming a field or button "sO" here! LC 8.1.6 on a Mac.

Do you get an error? Or what makes you think LC does not like it?
What version of LC are you using? What platform are you using it?

The "O" was possibly preceeded by a gremlin (unwanted hidden ctrl-char).
I have a text editor with a menu item "Zap gremlins".

Came to the conclusion that this was an editor "glitch".

Had another one which resulted in an "else" being
deleted except for one "e" when I pressed the
return key.

All in a days fun.
