It just doesn't work right, this option, especially when I have to update an older form that didn't have the Option Declare in it. The code in a button on the form contained a non-declared variable. Customer not happy, me not happy. I don't even want to see Option Declare added to the code, it must be implicit, I need a compiler that checks as much as possible, like in any decent language.
Please add an option in the Designer Preferences, under LotusScript, that's called "Enforce 'Option Declare' Everywhere".
