[help]What went wrong with this code????

  Asked By: Kim    Date: Feb 27    Category: Assembly Language    Views: 1952
  

This program searches a string for a given character and then calculates and displays the number of occurrences of that character in the string. If the character character does not occurs even for once, then the number of occurrence will be zero.

when i tried to change from .asm to .obj, it got an error message like this:

<35>near jump or call to different CS
<41>near jump or call to different CS
<61>near jump or call to different CS
<66>near jump or call to different CS

really appreciate your help cos i'm new in assembly language...
