Thanks to everyone who contributed. I am now clear that COMPILE LONG IF will
only accept a constant.

I went back and had a look at Staz's AppleEvent filter, and he places a
constant in a separate GLBL file which is looked at before all the other
Globals, so he can use COMPILE LONG IF throughout the program.

BTW, thanks Tedd for your input - I just misunderstood what you were
suggesting. You way would work, but leaves the code in the final
application, thus increasing its size. I was trying to reduce the executable
size, is all. The program's already 2Mb and is still growing by the hour.
