O-Words to open files

My "GFile1.ngc" contains the following

o<GFile1>sub

G91
G0X30
o<GFile>endsub
M2

My "Test2.ngc" file contains

o<GFile1>CALL
M2

I load Test2.ngc without any problem (in axis) but when I try run, there is no action. No error, no message.
I have tried a few variations. Any suggestions?

Thanks
Greg

I refer you to this topic to which I previously posted

As far as I could tell, calling named files does not work ( In 2.3 at least) but calling numbered files works fine.

Calling named files has worked since 2.3.

Greg, you can't have caps in the called file name.

Indeed. The parser strips out all spaces and converts to lower case, so it is looking for the file "test2.ngc" and not finding it.
