Hi,

EXTERNAL FUNCTION OR LOAD MODULE NOT FOUND: CONCAT

here is the code

-SET &v1 = 'Test';
-SET &v2 = 'Example';
-SET &v3 = CONCAT(&v1,&v2);
-TYPE &v3;

Could you please help.

Thanks

New simplified FOCUS function CONCAT() is in 8.2.

In earlier releases use
-SET &v3 = &v1||&v2;

FYI

|| or |

| is a soft concatenation, the two vars are just concatenated, including all training spaces

|| is a hard concatenation, the vars are concatenated, but all training spaces from var1 are pushed to the end of var2.

Thank you. I got it.

Please let me know how to use LCASE(). because I am getting same error as for CONCAT().

EXTERNAL FUNCTION OR LOAD MODULE NOT FOUND: LCASE

When using Dialogue Manager you can't use SQL functions like LCASE(); you can only use FOCUS functions like the simplified function LOWER() which is available in 7.7.06/8.1 or the legacy function LCWORD().
