hi banuradha ..
this would surely work...
but i foud out some other way .. thought of sharing it with u...

/*REXX*/
STRING1= 'COMMENTS'
STRING2='APPLICATION'
STRING1= LEFT(STRING1,39)
/*THIS WOULD ADD SPACES TO END OF THE STRING SO THAT */
/*LENGTH BECOME 39 */
STRING3=STRING1 STRING2
/*THIS CONCATENATES TWO STRING WITH SPACE IN BETWEEN*/

BYE..
