In the second SELECT CASE example available through QuickBasic Version 4.50 Advisor on-line Help, there is an error in a CASE statement.

The following correction applies to "HELP: SELECT Statement Programming Examples." To check for digit entry, the CASE statement should read as follows

CASE 48 TO 57

instead of the following:

CASE 30 TO 29


The correct ASCII decimal values for digit entries 0 through 9 are 48 to 57.

Version 4.50 is the first version of QuickBasic that offers the QB Advisor, a hypertext-based, on-line help system with instant cross referencing. This error was corrected in the QBX.EXE Microsoft Advisor that is included with Microsoft Basic PDS Version 7.00.
