Locate :-(

FCurrTable.Locate('CURRENCY', VarArrayOf([S]), [])

Why does that give an EVariantError "Invalid variant type conversion" exception?

Locate always works fine till I want to search for one field.  How can I search on one field that is NOT case sensitive?  FindKey doesn't appear to work--case sensitive so it seems.

BTW, S in the line is a string....and I know about loCaseInsensitive---I removed it while trying to debug the line to remove any complexity that may be causing problems.
