question about visual studio debugger

The visual studio 2019 debugger seems to not show variables defined in a Use module unless the variable is specifically used somewhere in the code being stepped through in the debugger.  Is this normal?  Is there another way to be able to see such variables other than adding otherwise unneeded code?  If I try to add a Quick Watch for such a variable, visual studio says the variable is undefined, even though it will allow adding a WRITE statement to write out its value.

Yes, this is normal. Use the syntax modulename::variablename in the QuickWatch window.

Super!  That's a nice trick.

The reason for this is that a symbol by a given name might exist in multiple modules, and unless it is used in the routine, there is no way to know which one you want.
