That is because you need to load the assembler interface.

when you invoke QB, use the /L command line parameter, ie:

  QB myprog /L

In "myprog.bas", include the header for QB.QLB like this

  ' $include: ''

Those two things will get you past your "sub not found"
error and let you try to debug your hardcode inline
machine language :-)
