Use A   && many records long

DO WHILE not eof()

      COPY NEXT 1 to bbb  && yes, it just keeps creating this one record file over and over


fails in when BBB is located on a network drive for some networks and works if BBB is located on the C drive. Why would that be? Could it be SMB1, 2 related?
