This article was previously published under Q108286


Compiling an adjustable sized array with extended error handling (for example, /4Yb), which uses an expression for a bound, incorrectly produces the following error:

error F2560: (array_name) : array bound used intrinsic call


Do not use extended error handling when compiling adjustable sized arrays that are dimensioned with an expression.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FORTRAN PowerStation version 1.0 for MS-DOS. This problem has been resolved with FORTRAN PowerStation maintenance release version 1.0a for MS-DOS.

FORTRAN PowerStation version 1.0 can be differentiated from the maintenance release version 1.0a by invoking the linker. Typing link32 | more from \F32\BIN directory will show version 2.8 for FORTRAN PowerStation version 1.0, and it will show version 1.0f for the maintenance release version 1.0a.


The sample program below demonstrates the problem when compiled with FORTRAN PowerStation:

Sample Code

       INTEGER N
       REAL X((N+1)/2) ! Expression dimensions adjustable array X
