Extra 9.2 Visual Basic 2010 Putstring problem

Extra 9.2 Visual Basic 2010 Putstring problem

Hi, I am writing text to a screen using PUTSTRING, the problem is if I execute the code from a button click it work fine every time by clicking button. If I execute the same code in a sub routine, it truncate the last 4 fields and the host generate an error. I need this code to work in a sub, this is an automated process with no user interaction. I have spent the last week pulling my hair out on this issue and cannot understand why it works when I click the button but not in the code. See code below.

scr.PutString(SPName, 20, 10)
scr.PutString(SPAddress, 21, 15)
scr.PutString(SPCity, 22, 15)
scr.PutString(SPProvince, 22, 48)
scr.PutString(SPPostalCode, 22, 70)

I have stepped thru in debug and it writes the text correctly to the screen.
