QuickBasic 4.50 Arrays Can Have 60 Elements, Not Just 8

Appendix C, "Limits of QuickBasic," on Page 337 of the "Microsoft QuickBasic 4.5: Programming in Basic" manual for Version 4.50 and the QuickBasic Advisor on-line Help system incorrectly state that there is a limit of 8 dimensions for arrays. The actual limit is 60.

Appendix C and the on-line Help system should read as follows:

   Arrays                        Maximum             Minimum
   Array Dimensions                60                   1

This information was not included in the documentation for earlier versions of QuickBasic or Microsoft Basic compiler.

This documentation error has been corrected in the "Microsoft Basic 7.0: Programmer's Guide" for Microsoft Basic PDS Version 7.00 and in the Microsoft Advisor on-line Help system of the QBX.EXE environment in Microsoft Basic PDS 7.00.
