STRING verb is used to concatenate two or more strings into one. For complete reference check manuals.

Means It will concatenate the first string before the first space in first string and add second string in the same way.

I hope Size would transfer whole string regardless of character, but space would delimit the strings when find character SPACE.

Hi,


01 a pic x(10)
01 b pic x(10)
01 c pic x(20)


think * is space

move "01234*****" to a
move "56789*****" to b


----------------------
delimited by space
means preceding data of space will be stored.

string a b delimited by space into c

c contains "0123456789**********"


-----------------------------------
string a b delimited by size into c

c contains "01234*****56789*****"
