In V9 :

NewVar = CatX( ' / ' , Var1 , Var2 , Var3 ) ;

In V8 :

NewVar = Trim(Var1) || ' / ' || Trim(Var2) || '/' || Trim(Var3) ;

I was wondering if someone knew how to concatenate character values?

I have data that looks like this with mulitple columns:

a b c 4hrs 5 hrs 6 hrs

and I want it to be combined into one column with a delimiter of some sort:

a 4hrs / 5hrs / 6 hrs

Thank You
