OIC Jim. I think you've nailed it. A declared global does NOT show up  
in the globals UNTIL you put something into it! Brilliant! So is  
there a handler that gets triggered if I declare a global? If so, I  
can intercept it and auto-initialize it with a handler to null and  
never have to change a line of Foxpro code that checks for null  
globals! BRILLIANT!!!

I turned the message watcher on but cannot discern if any of the  
messages are the result of declaring a global variable. Still, this  
is workable.
