I think SELECT A through SELECT J dates back to dBASE III+ which only
allowed 10 workareas.  The later versions of dBASE allow up to 225
numbered workareas.

Open your tables as follows

use whatever1 in select()
use whatever2 in select()
use whatever11 in select()
use whatever12 in select()
use whatever25 in select()

select 3  // or select whatever3
select 11 //or select whatever11
select 24 // or select whatever24
