Q62815: "Not Enough Memory on Exec" When Using RUN with ISAM File Open
Article: Q62815 Product(s): See article Version(s): 7.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | SR# S900525-29 buglist7.00 fixlist7.10 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 6-AUG-1990 From within the QBX.EXE environment or a compiled program, an attempt to execute a RUN statement while there are open ISAM files results in the run-time error R6007, "Not enough memory on EXEC." The RUN statement is documented as having the ability to close all files; therefore, this error should not occur. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) version 7.00 for MS-DOS. This problem was corrected in BASIC PDS version 7.10. To work around the problem in version 7.00, CLOSE all ISAM files before executing a RUN statement. The following code example demonstrates the problem: Code Example ------------ TYPE testtype test AS INTEGER END TYPE OPEN "test.dat" FOR ISAM testtype "runexe" AS #1 'CLOSE 'If this line is put in, the program will run correctly RUN "test"
