    Try removing the outmost parentheses surrounding the expression - for some reason in some circumstances the B4ppc parser doesn't like them :(

    The parser treats expressions wrapped by parentheses as numeric expressions and therefore fails in this situation.
    a = (b & c) 'ERROR
    a = b & c 'OK
    a = (5 + 2'OK

    Just out of curiosity - Is this by design (because Basic4PPC is weakly typed)?

    Could this be avoided if we had to declare all our variables indicating also the datatype?

    This is by design. Yes, if Basic4ppc was strongly typed this assumption would not have been necessary.
