Hi Experts,

I have a prg which defines a number of variables / UDFs / procedures.  Not sure if I have the terminology correct but as an example it includes the following code.
*-- Date format PICTURE template
  gc_datepic  = "99/99/9999"

I want to to call this variable from another program.
I put Set procedure to the filename in the program but it didn't do anything when I went to a prompt and said ?gc_datepic

Can you help me out please? Thank you very much.
