(Turbo Pascal) I program that I wrote in Pascal will not give the correct answer after it is compiled. When I step through the program or run it from the compiler window it works fine, but not after it is compiled.

There is a bit less information to help. Please try to tell me, which units are loaded and what should the program do. You wrote it's programmed in Turbo Pascal, so i think it runs in real mode, not in protected mode. How did ya compile it ? Check ALL options from the compiler in the IDE and the command line compiler TPC.EXE or TPCX.EXE if you use them too.

You may eMail me when you got more information : omsec@usa.net

Most likely your program contains a bug.  An unitialized variable can cause this behavior.  Also, try running it with R+,Q+,S+ and see if that flushes out a bug.
