receiving "Auto It Error" message

Recommended Posts


Hello !

I'm running a script which sometimes gives me this error:

"Line -1:

Error: Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded"

What is generating this error ? What is the maximum range for subscript dimension ?

Thank you in advance for your answer !

I presume you have compiled your script - that deprives you of line numbering and hence the "-1" call. Try running the script directly from SciTE and see if you can get a better notion of where the error occurs.

This type of error often occurs because you are expecting an array as the return value from a function - and you do not get it because of an error. Then when you try and use the array......
