I had this same issue. I was not calling a program from a file but as a subroutine
Below is a piece of sample code from  my program.
The " title line" of the sub program ( 0 1234 ) must have a space after the numbers or the system will not recognize it as a sub program and it will pass right through the M98 line as if it were a comment.


G00 X 50.000 Y 100.000
M98 P1234
M30 ( End of program.)
%

o 1234
G00 Z 5.000
code and stuff here
M99

M98 P1234
there can be a space between the P and the numbers P 1234 or P1234 these will work either way
o 1234
The O 1234 can have a space between the O and the numbers O 1234 or O1234 this works either way

the O1234   <- must have a space here.

M99
Must have a line feed or carriage return after it or you will receive a " subprogram not found error"
