Default value : 400
Allowed range : 25 to 2,000
The purpose of this directive is to avoid an accidental infinite loop while processing your Macro. Consider the following code :
nRunningDate = Today()
nMillenium = FirstDateOfMonth(2000, 1)
while nRunningDate <= nMillenium
// do something …
If you forget to increase the value of nRunningDate inside the while loop, you will get an infinite loop. To protect you against this, every time you enter into a for or while loop, Q++ keeps track of the number of times you have looped.
If that number exceeds the value of MAX_NUM_ITERATIONS, then Q++ will issue an error message detailing the value of the loop counter, and the assembler line where it occurred. It will then abort the script.
