    your global vars should have something to indicate it is different than what you would normally type, eg "gTrack". Then it won't matter if you use trk, track, mytrack locally.

    Re: Send Data to RS232 Serial Port

    add zeros in your byte array where you want a space:

    bytes(0) = "&H" & 2
    bytes(1) = "&H" & 0
    bytes(2) = "&H" & 8
    bytes(3) = "&H" & 0
    bytes(4) = "&H" & 38
