To my knowledge It starts with 1.

if you try storing some value in Array(0) it will produce erroneous results

i don't think you will get a soc7 while accessing it. the data willnot get stored as expected. still u can display them. May be u got SOC7 while doing some manipulations with it.

Hi,

S0C7 can happen due to

1. Numeric operation on Non-numeric data
2. Un-initialized working-storage
3. Coding past the min/max allowed subscript
4. etc.

The move you had mentioned could belong the the 1) category in the above list.

Please correct if I'm wrong.

Cheers,
avalanches.
