I never put several variables on the same line:
dim x(50)
dim f(50)

however, it should work nevertheless
can you try with the 2 lines, and make sure the error really occurs on that line on and not on some other line?
try to create a script with just those 2 lines

I am sure the error is actually caused by some other code (above) those lines
