Address Error at instruction before address

Posted 05 November 2012 - 07:58 PM

I am writing a program for my Motorola M68k assembly class that is suppose to output a day of the week given a user inputted date. My program assembles fine but when I try running the program it allows me to enter a date, but I keep getting a message that says "Address error at instruction before address 000030F8". When I go to the program listing file, the instructions before address 000030F8 are the "lea days,A1" and "adda.l D2,A1" commands. I do not know why I keep getting that error message. Any guidance on how to correct this problem will be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know where to find a good manual for
the BSVC microprocessor simulation framework?

Or maybe someone knows about the BSVC-macros, like "cvta2"?

@BubbaBolt: What did you fed in as input?
