Hi Joe,

what do you mean with "explicit problem"
Are you getting an "compilation error" similar to this one
compilation error at line 2 (Chunk: can't create a variable with that name (explicitVariables?))

If so, then it seems you have checked the option "strict compilation mode" under Preferences->ScriptEditor

You can either disable that option or you have to 
declare the variable myDefl before using it.

in your example insert the line

local mydefl   

before the line with the put command.
