DO Command Searches More Than Just the Main Program

ID: Q100813

The information in this article applies to:

  - Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a
  - Microsoft FoxPro for MS-DOS, versions 2.5 and 2.5a

On Page L3-465 of the FoxPro "Language Reference" manual, the description of the DO command incorrectly states:

   When you issue DO in a procedure within an executable version or
   an application, only the main program of the executable version
   or application is searched for the specified procedure.

This statement should be removed. If a procedure file has been defined using the SET PROCEDURE statement, the procedure file will be searched for the specified procedure. The executable or application will also look through the files that have been included in the project for a file by that name. Microsoft has confirmed that this documentation error occurs on Page L3-465 of the FoxPro "Language Reference" manual.
