Struggly to understand data memory overflow - Need help

Hi - I am struggling to 'fit' a project onto an 8052 derivative (AT89S8252) part with the standard 8K code space and 256 bytes of data memory. The build log information is complaining about data address space overflow. My 8051 understanding is that the first 128 bytes (0 - 0x7F) is either direct or indirect memory whereas the 128 bytes from 0x80 to 0xFF is indirect only. The module DATETIME below, I declare no variables as global and all variables within each function are declared as idata local, yet the linker is claiming of a DATA overrun error that I don't understand. My guess is that I am using in excess of 128 bytes of direct memory. I would appreciate someone reviewing what I have pasted below and set me straight where the problem exists. I don't understand what steps need to take place in the project setup of my variable declaration to eliminate the issue. Thanks for your help...
