Not sure. Are the keys in your array successive numbers (that is 1,2,3...
with no gaps)? Perhaps you could post the code that generates the array.

No. Using the "put empty into" command, the global variable still exists
but has nothing in it (therefore the keys function returns empty because
the variable has no elements). But it still appears in the globalNames and
variableNames functions.
