Sorry, I didn't notice in my earlier posting that you had in fact two error
messages.  You may want to -set trace on- and open a log in text format,
then run your program so we can see at which specific line the "=invalid
name" error is occurring.  You can cut and paste the log in your email but
please don't send it as an attachment.

Also, pasting the whole code of your program might help since we can't tell
from your email what macro `*' may or may not contain.
