Subject:Pdox suddenly wants quotes
Date:Wed, 7 Nov 2018 15:23:41 -0800
From:Peter <>
I have a form that has been working just ducky for many years. Today I 
had to make some simple changes which went fine. Upon pressing [F9] for 
syntax check, pdox started balking at any code reference to objects that 
did not have quotes.

eg codeline: fldJobs = tbfMainSched.recSched.ApptNote
Pdox highlighted ApptNote and the status bar msg was "Error: object 
I put quotes around ApptNote, pressed [F9]
Then Pdox highlighted recSched and put up same error msg
I put quotes arounf recSched and then everything was right with the 
world again.

q1) aren't quotes optional, just for readability?
q2) why has this been working for so many years and now suddenly Pdox is 
complaining (I have always had compile warnings/debug turned on, always)

Thank you for any insight
