special characters in string

i need to create a file with tabulator separated fields. Hence i added a line FName.WRITE(string1 + chr(11)+string2); But i always got an error message because of unknown variable “chr”. I know i can add a single character, but can’t find a hint in the helpfile how to use it. please help and thanks in advance Stefan Weinreich Billing Analyst

Define a variable (e.g. TabChar) with type Char. Then in the code: TabChar := 11; FName.WRITE(string1 + TabChar + string2 + TabChar + …); Alternatively, you can use a dataport and set the separator character to . Cheers, John

thanks John, it works Stefan Weinreich Billing Analyst
