Binaries? What are those?
Also the use of the word field is confusing here, "fields" in RunRev
contain strings, a better word would have been Objects.
The main point is that by declaring local's you make your code more
robust and reduce the chances of making a "silly" script editor
There seems to be an exception to the general rule when it comes to
repeat with myIndex = 1 to 100
Will NOT error if myIndex is NOT Declared whether the option to
declare locals is on or off.
If myIndex is declared, I'm not sure if it creates a new instance of
myIndex or not, or what it should do in this case. Any ideas?
All the Best
