Calling a subroutine from the mainscript

Dear all,

I want to get familiar with subroutines and am therefore playing around with.

I therefore just wrapped a simple inline load statement in a sub and placed in the tab "subroutines"

SUB load()

  LOAD * INLINE [
  TEST1
  1
  2
  3
  ]
;

END SUB

No I try to call this subroutine in my main tab using the following code

CALL load()

But this gives me an error. Any thoughts on what Im doing wrong?

order of your Tabs is wrong

Sub must be defined before it is called

Change order of your first and second tab

Hi Jonathan,

I tried you're suggestion (see below) but this still doesn't work... Am I overlooking a typo?

#First tab

CALL load()

#Second tab

SUB load

LOAD * INLINE [
Employee_ID, Customer_id, Order_id, Order_total
1, 11, 6, 12
2, 12, 7, 14
3, 13, 8, 176
4, 14, 9, 12
5, 15, 10, 8
]
;

END SUB

Hi Marc,


Try like below,

#Firsttab

SUB load

LOAD * INLINE [
Employee_ID, Customer_id, Order_id, Order_total
1, 11, 6, 12
2, 12, 7, 14
3, 13, 8, 176
4, 14, 9, 12
5, 15, 10, 8
]
;

END SUB


#Secondtab

CALL load;


It is important that the call command should comes after the sub routines.
