Subject: [Sdcc-user] why the error?

When I assemble the following using asx8051:
                .area    DSEG    (DATA)
                .org     20h
_flags        .ds      2
                .globl    _flags
I get the following response:
in line2
.org in REL area or directive/mnenomic error
missing or improper delimiters operators terminators or delimiters
in line 6
.org in REL area or directive /mnemonic error.
Whats wrong? I'm using the default small model.
Why is the error  generated in the assembly code?  What do the error messages mean? It is perfectly valid code.
Thanks ,
