Destination label too far away; loop, Select Case, or block If too large

Procedures can be as large as 64K from beginning to end, but because branching can occur either forward or backward within a procedure, such branching is limited to 32,767 bytes in either direction. This error has the following causes and solutions:

  • You have a branching statement (GoTo, GoSub) whose destination label is farther away than 32,767 bytes from the source branching statement. Move the label closer, or make the procedure smaller.

  • You have a very large loop structure that occupies more than 32K of memory from beginning to end. Make the loop smaller.

  • You have a very large block If structure that contains a Then or Else clause that occupies more than 32K of memory from beginning to end. Reduce the size of the offending portion of the structure.
