there are rules to follow when writing distributed assembly code..
you can download the PDF document from download section regarding Assembly programming in keil.

look for the use of keyword
"extrn" and "segment code" etc.

make sure you are not getting any warnings coz that can ruin your program.

to call a routine from external asm file.. you need to declare that segment as public. i will give you an example soon..

here is the exact Keil example..

File: ADD.asm


;Add routine which will be called from other file
PUBLIC ADDNUM ;declare function as public

ADDNUM_ SEGMENT CODE  ;define code segment for linker
RSEG ADDNUM_ ;select segment ADDNUM

ADDNUM:  ;Our add routine
MOV R2,R1
ADD R2,R0
RET


File: Test.asm


EXTRN CODE (ADDNUM) ;define the external symbol

CSEG at 0 ;code starts at 0
MOV R0,#50  ;Some dummy instructions
MOV R1,#51
ACALL ADDNUM ;lets call this routine which is in second file


Link it and check..

Ok i guess Ajay's example is enough to learn the multi file concept..

I have written a code of about 31KB in a notepad which includes main pgm, LCD initilizations, 3 timer configurations and settings, ADC and its lookup table, Serial intializations and its Tx and Rx, keypad routine and some more things..

Unfortunately i dont know the concept of multi file in asm formats and i have written all these in a single file with countless jumps.... Thank god its working and thanks to JTAG debugger as well...

Now i wana seperate them into individual files and add them into my project...

So i request any 1 to plz share me a project where such concept of multi files is used... so i can get a clear idea of it...

And i dont understand why multi file is required when the solo single file is working fine....

Anyways both formats jumps to specified sequence right ? Can any 1 plz explain why they insist on multifile ?
