"I didn't know that subscripted variables were treated so much differently than non-subscripted variables."
Suggestion: Search the net and count the number of postings containing "Why doesn't this work" when they are using subscripts.
You can easily find hundreds of those.
Generally useful advice: Even though users feel compelled to use subscripts, resist that compulsion. You will have substantially fewer problems.
