How To

“SUB CANNOT BE NESTED” error. Solution?

New issue...

I have one sub for each letter of the alphabet...and a sub that selects what “action” was selected (IFs that select the right SUB according to the proper INKEY$)...but I get the error at the letter “W” sub.

I think you'll find that omitting a closing END IF can throw super weird errors.

(I presume you know one SUB can't have another sub defined inside it - there needs to be an END SUB instruction between them.)

Also, did you know you can attach code files to forum posts? For long or specific things, it's much better than discussing generalities (or copy-pasting into the forum post body text).

...checked the END SUBs...not the’s in the middle of a list with almost identical lines. Commented out the SUB with the error...but the next one has the a limit. It’s working with a GOSUB...RETURN but that’s going to be an issue later.

Must have been a coding typo...flipped all the GOSUBs and RETURNs back to SUBs and END SUBs and everything worked. I was also using GO_HERE: ...which shouldn’t have done anything since labels don’t do anything except bookmark the code line (uses a variable?) so I commented them out.

...not sure...but it’s fixed and that’s what matters.

Thanks guys.
