Here's a snippet of code that runs correctly in 8008 but not in my test 8204 environment. Any ideas as to what I need to do differently, aside from doing this in several steps? It does work fine when only using one field. Thanks

  
-SET &ECHO=ALL;

 TABLE FILE CAR
 SUM
 CNT.COUNTRY
 CNT.MODEL
 ON TABLE SET HOLDLIST PRINTONLY
 ON TABLE SAVE
 END
-*
-RUN
-READ SAVE &COUNTRY.5.&MODEL.5.
-RUN
TYPE &COUNTRY &MODEL

Code tightening must have gotten you. This works


TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
CNT.COUNTRY
CNT.MODEL
ON TABLE SET HOLDLIST PRINTONLY
ON TABLE SAVE
END
-*
-RUN
-READ SAVE &COUNTRY.A5. &MODEL.A5.
-RUN
-TYPE &COUNTRY &MODEL


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Boy, I had to look really hard for the difference. One space does make all the difference. Thanks

TABLE FILE CAR
 SUM
 CNT.COUNTRY
 CNT.MODEL
 ON TABLE SET HOLDLIST PRINTONLY
 ON TABLE HOLD
 END
-RUN
-READFILE HOLD
-RUN
-TYPE &COUNTRY &MODEL

Yes, thank you. I was just discussing that here at the office after I posted. I like this method Smiler
