When I run this code the sprite it creates doesnt always show
if however I run it twice once after the other a sprite is always shown can anyone suggest why this might be?

make_planet_info:
planet_name$ =planet_table(star_lp).name$
size_subscript = planet_table(star_lp).size
climate_subscript = planet_table(star_lp).climate
size$ = planet_size(size_subscript).description$ + ", "+climate_table(climate_subscript).description$
pop$ = str$(planet_table(star_lp).current_population/1000000) + "/" + str$(planet_table(star_lp).max_population) + " pop"
abundance_subscript = planet_table(star_lp).mineral_abundance
abundance$ = abundance_table(abundance_subscript).description$
gravity_subscript = planet_table(star_lp).gravity
gravity$ = gravity_table(gravity_subscript).description$

longlen = text width(planet_name$)
if longlen

I had the same problem with a project a while back - i just ended up hiding the sprites or moving them off of the area of the screen
