Hi David, something like this should work for arbitrary table of any
length located anywhere in the program space. -- Rich

               movlw high string       ; point to a string
               movwf look_hi           ; in reality, a macro...
               movlw low string
               movwf look_lo
               call process            ; go process it

; subroutine to process string at look_hi/look_lo
process         call lookup             ; get a byte (this is the magic)

               ; here, do something with byte in W
               ; also, return if end of string
               ; otherwise...

               goto process            ; do it again

; Jump to address in look_hi/look_lo, which presumably is an RETLW.
; Note pointer post increment.
; Equivalent to: W=*look_ptr++
lookup          movf look_hi,w          ; set PCLATH
               movwf PCLATH
               movf look_lo,w          ; and get PCL
               incf look_lo,f          ; but post inc
               incf look_hi,f
               movwf PCL               ; ok, now jump
