hi mikewang,

Are you sure you haven't forgotten to write a simple ';'?

Hello MikeWang ....

As those guys underlined there is nothing wrong w/ the BDE declaration. You've forgotten to place a "(" or a ";" w/o the quotes... Or something similar to these..

Cheers,
Viktor

Yip a code sample would be great, also check this it's the most common problem with this error message...make sure you have all the end; in E.G.

begin
 code.here.....
  if code.here then begin
   some more code...
  end;//make sure you add the end to this statement
end;

Later

Hi MikeWang,

I believe the compiler error comes from a double declaration of Abort. You have to write SysUtils.Abort; instead of just Abort;

That's all.

Ciao, Mike

Because my Program uses the DBISaveChanges function, so I add
the BDE declared in the uses section, but found it cause
the Abort procedure could not be compile (if a unit not include Abort procedure, the unit could be compile).
The following is a test Program.

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs, StdCtrls, Bde;
type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Edit1: TEdit;
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if Edit1.Text = 'aa' then Abort;
  Color := clGreen;
end;

end.


Regards,
MikeWang
