    I have a routine in a VLX file and I am trying to call it from anothor
    routine but
    it does not work.

    Why not?

    TIA

    The VLX is already loaded and it works if I type the command but it fails if
    I call
    as in (command ".gridWorld")

    as shown below:

    (defun c:repGrid ()
    (if (tblsearch "layer" "grid")
    (if (vl-cmdf ".erase" (ssget "x" '((8 . "Grid"))) "")
    (if (vl-vlx-loaded-p "Towill2004")
    (gridWorld)
    )
    )
    (alert "\nGRID layer not found!")
    )
    (princ)
    )

    thanks

    SORRY this is the correct one

    (defun c:repGrid ()
    (if (tblsearch "layer" "grid")
    (if (vl-cmdf ".erase" (ssget "x" '((8 . "Grid"))) "")
    (if (vl-vlx-loaded-p "Towill2004")
    (command "gridWorld")
    )
    )
    (alert "\nGRID layer not found!")
    )
    (princ)
    )

    you might want to try (c:gridworld) in place of (command "gridworld")

    Calling commands defined by the (defun c:xxx method are called in lisp like
    this (c:xxx)

    HTH,

    Thanks but (c:gridWorld) does not work either :(

    (defun c:repGrid ()
    (if (tblsearch "layer" "grid")
    (if (vl-cmdf ".erase" (ssget "x" '((8 . "Grid"))) "") ;---- works fine
    up to this point than it ends with no errors
    (if (vl-vlx-loaded-p "Towill2004")
    (command "gridWorld")
    )
    )
    (alert "\nGRID layer not found!")
    )
    (princ)
    )

    Try (c:gridworld) instead of the command function

    gridWorld is a .fas function in a .prj inside VLX with multiple projects
