Hi,

 

I just want to add a "1" to variables called "segment."   They look like "ABC," ....."XYZ."

 

I was wondering why this doesn't work:

 

If carrier = 'CTL' then segmentplus = segment || "1";

 

I get ABC not ABC1.

 

 

Thanks.

Length of the variables. Try using a CATT function that strips trailing and leading spaces.

 

If carrier = 'CTL' then segmentplus = catt(segment, 1);
