Hi everybody,

(dBase III Plus)
How would you guys check "if equal" a memory variable containing a word, created by a first pass of program, against ITSELF during the second (and the third, fourth, fifth,… infinite times) steps of program?
I tried to store the word to a (temp.var.) during the first pass, but happens that during the second, and subsequent steps, the (temp.var.) created is actualized (stores) with the new word!
Due to infinity times by this step, a counter, or different temp.var. would be impractical…

Any hint? bigears Thanks!
(sorry for my English…) sad

RE: Pls, help me with this problem...

May be I posted in wrong section.
I will rewrite it in dBase PLUS section.

Hope someone can give a hand to me... I'm stuck!
