the example is just a small modification of your code:
DIM sarray var = "" filename = "ProjectNotes.txt" ch1 = OPEN ("text", filename, "MODE=RO, LIBRARY") j = 1 sarray[j]="" repeat n = INPUT (ch1, j, 1, var) pos = STRSTR (var, "EF-25") sarray[j] = var j = j + 1 until pos = 1 CLOSE ch1 VALUES "refnote" sarray
I haven’t tested it, I guess it should work 🙂
The easiest way to debug GDL when you don’t know what is happening is to use PRINT commands. Or, you can use BREAKPOINT with the debugger, as explained here.
