A simple mistake, and an easy one to make. I got caught once by the omission of a comma in some code I'd written. I didn't find out until time came to produce end of month reports. Fortunately, the entire app was written in a procedural language which made debugging quite easy even though there were thousands of lines of code to wade through.
