I found the problem with the undeclred identifier
fronfile was fromfile lol typo (smiles)

i guess its nearly there

with   variable1 := sl[0];
       variable2 := sl[1];
   i get incompatible types String and Pchar
how do i fix this
thanks Kretzschmar

What type is Variable1, Variable, etc declared as.

If they are declared as PChar then either change them to a string or

variable1 := PChar(sl[0]);
