 I had been trying various solutions (so I'd been "trying" stating the
functions a bunch of different ways)--hence the "try" in there.

but then I fixed it as you suggested--name the function correctly (insert
eyeroll at myself here), and move the fcn = line to outside the for
loop--and I still get the same error.
