undeclared variables getting through in Strict Compilation mode

The simple way to avoid that in the future is what many have suggested for the eons we have been posting on this list: Name your variables in such a way that they *cannot* conflict. For instance, globals should start with a g as in gFormApp. Local variables might start with an l (some say p but others say that should be for passed parameters). It’s really up to you. the important thing is that simply by looking at a variable, you can know it’s “scope” (pseudo scope I suppose since LC does not really scope variables).
