FIX: @ ... SAY with FONT Clause Returns "Syntax Error"

ID: Q105112

2.50 WINDOWS kbprg kbfixlist kbbuglist kberrmsg

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, version 2.5


The following @ ... SAY command will return a "Syntax Error" when the the following commands are issued either in the FoxPro Command window or in a program:

   SET DEVICE TO FILE <path\filename>
   @ 2,2 SAY "TEST" FONT "Roman", 10


A "Syntax Error" will be returned if an @ ... SAY command with a FONT clause follows a SET DEVICE TO FILE or SET DEVICE TO PRINTER command. However, there is no problem if the @ ... SAY command does not have a FONT clause.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FoxPro 2.5 for Windows. This problem was corrected in FoxPro 2.5a for Windows.
