Q59398: PRINT Ignored After PRINT CURRENCY Variable in QBX.EXE 7.00
Article: Q59398 Product(s): See article Version(s): 7.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | buglist7.00 fixlist7.10 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 20-SEP-1990 The program below demonstrates a problem with executing a PRINT statement to produce a blank line. After printing a variable or array element that has been dimensioned as a CURRENCY data type, a blank line cannot be produced by issuing a successive PRINT. This problem occurs only within the QBX.EXE environment, and does not occur with programs compiled with BC.EXE. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the QBX.EXE environment of Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) version 7.00 for MS-DOS. This problem was corrected in BASIC PDS version 7.10. Code Example ------------ DIM A AS CURRENCY A = 10 PRINT A PRINT PRINT "Where did the space go?" END Output ------ 10 Where did the space go? Workaround Code Example ----------------------- Each additional PRINT statement will correctly produce a blank line, as shown in the following program: DIM A AS CURRENCY A = 10 PRINT A PRINT PRINT PRINT "A blank line was printed" Output ------ 10 A blank line was printed
