I'm trying to run a program that worked fine in Delphi 2 in Delphi 3.
It gives me the error "Array type required" on this line
     Changed[i] := False;
Changed is defined as follows:
     Changed: array[1..8] of boolean;

What is the problem here?

Some problems are evident if you step back from the trees a bit.  
Changed[i] := FALSE;  isn't very confusing.  You don't say what symbol the compiler was complaining about.  However.....

Look at your code carefully.  Is it possible that something else is within scope of the statement.  Are you in a method of an object where 'Changed' is a field or property?  Are you within a WITH xxx DO clause?

If you want to send me a little piece of the code, I'll look at it more closely (I know thats hard to do sometimes).  E_Mail:  iancamp@interlog.com

I'll check this later today.

Cheers,

It is within no WITH-DO statement.
As I said before it works with Delphi 2, so it must be something that was changed.
