>>> name = Create('Name')
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
NameError: There is no variable named 'Create'

I think we need a little more context before we can be of much help, despite
this newsgroup's famous psychic debugging abilities. That is, unless someone
out there wants to prove me wrong ...

About all I can tell you is that you are putting quotes in somewhere they
aren't required, but you'd probably wirked that out.

Eber, please post the whole program, or if it's too long (say, > 100 lines)
or a secret then write a shorter program to demonstrate the bug and post
