String Function

Returns a repeating character string of the length specified.

Syntax

String(number, character)

Arguments

  • number
    Length of the returned string. If number contains Null, Null is returned.

  • character
    Character code specifying the character or string expression whose first character is used to build the return string. If character contains Null, Null is returned.

Remarks

If you specify a number for character greater than 255, String converts the number to a valid character code using the formula:

character Mod 256

The following example uses the String function to return repeating character strings of the length specified:

Dim MyString
MyString = String(5, "*")   ' Returns "*****".
MyString = String(5, 42)   ' Returns "*****".
MyString = String(10, "ABC")   ' Returns "AAAAAAAAAA".
