Trouble placing variables at specific locations in memory

Using CW 10.2,  I've figured out how to create and locate a "section" in order to place variables,  as such ...

 

 

#pragma force_active on

#pragma define_section version ".version" far_abs R

#pragma section version begin

 

__declspec( version ) const U16 fwMajor = SOFTWARE_VERSION_MAJOR;

__declspec( version )  const U16 fwMinor = SOFTWARE_VERSION_MINOR;

__declspec( version )  const U16 fwBuild = SOFTWARE_VERSION_BUILD;

__declspec( version )  const U16 fwRevision = SOFTWARE_VERSION_REVISION;

 

#pragma section version end

 

 

When I inspect the MAP file, the constants are placed where expected ( as defined in my LCF file ).   The order of the constants, however, is not the same order as they appear in their declaration.

 

Question:  Is there another pragma or attribute that can be used to keep the order of variables within a section the same as their declaration order ?

 

Thanks,

R.W.
