Isn't that a foxpro issue?
A string literal is limited to 255 in length. A string literal means any string between the quotes, like "This is a string literal".
On the other hand a string variable can hold large amounts of data (16 Mb).
strMyData = "strMyData string variable can hold tons of data while a string"+;
" literal is limited to 255 in length."+;
"You can have many 255 or less characters sized strings concatenated to make up one big string variable."+;
"Try it out ...."
for another way to do it:
text to myStringVariable noshow
You can have long strings here. Such as a multi paragraph story. Or even a chapter of a book.
