    Default RE: expected value error message

    This usually refers to a syntax error of some type in an expression. Most likely an extra character or a missing character.

    Like this example from the interactive tab of the code editor:


    tbl=table.open("members")
    text = tbl.Field_Get(["apt_num")
    ERROR: Expected value

    Alpha was not expecting the [ in the tbl.Field_Get(), it was expecting qutotation marks around a valid field name.

    You can quote me on "qutotation", sloppy typing. Substitute "quotation"
