The following conditions are considered errors. When an error occurs, the formatted string remains unaltered and Set returns false.

  • There are not enough editable positions in the formatted string to hold the contents of the replacement string.

  • One of the replacement character values is not valid because it is not printable or does not match its corresponding mask element.
