string getting cut off, why???

P: 175
I have some code that I'm reusing, so nothing has changed EXCEPT that the length of a string has increased a bit...maybe by a few hundred characters.

i have a string assignment statement, for example:

dim x as string
x = "............"

and x isn't getting everything, it's cut off. So, I figured maybe an array would help, but I'm not real familiar with variant's in VB. How can I fix this problem?

Strange... I am not sure why this could be happening.
String Data Type (Visual Basic)

Holds sequences of unsigned 16-bit (2-byte) code points ranging in value from 0 through 65535. Each code point, or character code, represents a single Unicode character. A string can contain from 0 to approximately 2 billion (2 ^ 31) Unicode characters.
You can assign a fixed length if you wanted to but it does not look like you have established a fixed length.

I literally just found the problem. That string length ( the string * x ), that might help for something else I have. ...but, I realised the problem was a typo in my code...though it still doesn't make sense why the string kept cutting off way before the typo. Anyway, I appreciate the help, thank you.
