An ampersand (&) in the code is used outside a function call. The ampersand should precede only a variable name (which has an address), and it should only be used to pass the variable by reference to a function that accepts the parameter by reference.
Passing variables by reference allows the function to change the value of the variable.
JScript does not allow functions to be defined with reference parameters. JScript provides the ampersand to allow calls to external objects that take reference parameters.
To correct this error
Make sure that the ampersand (&) precedes a variable name in a call to a function and that the function accepts the parameter by reference.
