Hi Sadhu,

I don't think that SetDataOfIndex is the culprit here. The relevant  
code for SetDataOfIndex is as follows:

  if pKey is not empty then
     put pValue into sDataArray[pIndex][pKey]
     put pValue into sDataArray[pIndex]
  end if

so the CR must be creeping in somewhere else. What else do you have  
going on?
