        You can't leave any of QB's ON statements (ON ERROR, ON COM,
etc.) active because they hook interrupts. Exit without cleaning them
up and you'll hang your system fer shure. Also, you can skip the END
statement (as above) because the bottom drops out on the aliased call
and you never reach END to execute <g>.
