Used to force string concatenation of two expressions.
result = expression1 & expression2
The & operator syntax has these parts:
|result||Required; any String or Variant variable.|
|expression1||Required; any expression.|
|expression2||Required; any expression.|
If an expression is not a string, it is converted to a String variant. The data type of result is String if both expressions are string expressions; otherwise, result is a String variant.
If both expressions are Null, result is Null. However, if only one expression is Null, that expression is treated as a zero-length string ("") when concatenated with the other expression. Any expression that is Empty is also treated as a zero-length string.
This example uses the & operator to force string concatenation.
Dim MyStr MyStr = "Hello" & " World" ' Returns "Hello World". MyStr = "Check " & 123 & " Check" ' Returns "Check 123 Check".
