Hey,
I want to call a macro N times:

Code:
include 'E:\Programme\FASM\INCLUDE\win32ax.inc'

.data

macro SingleFilledTable
{
                dd 26841597
                dd 846459
                dd 1342127453
                dd 18238399
                dd 0x0
                dd 265633831
                dd 294331891
                dd 4036313
}

times 232: SingleFilledTable

start:

        invoke MessageBox, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0
        ret

.end start                                  
    



But this gives me a syntax error. What is the problem and how can it be solved?

Thanks for Help!

Don't know why (I don't use macros), but this seems OK
Code:
repeat 232
SingleFilledTable
end repeat

See manual, section 2.3.5 - Repeating macroinstructions.
Note that fasm's preprocessor is a separate language that does its work on the complete source before it is send to assembler module. Therefore TIMES, which is an assembler directive, cannot affect something that is done by preprocessor, like expansion of macro.
