Hmm, I don't understand the problem. NOT doing it the way that I suggest would lead to the problems that you describe ... But what I suggest is that logical values get treated the same as number values :) That means, non-A versions always count logical values - that means, if the implementation doesn't have a distinct logical type, no drama, everything still works because logicals would be treated exactly like numbers anyway :D / Tomas .
