    LONG string formatting problem- do you have answers?

      Hi,

       

      When I start my movie, I am trying to set a variable using a LONG string- concatenating "text" and getAt(x,y). I saw a solution some time ago utilizing backslashes. i keep getting the error message "variable used befroe assigned a value".

       

      My variable is "bodder" and the string is "I can't get there until " & getAt(x,y) & ". You may have to ask a co-worker for a ride, or catch the next commuter train."

       

      "bodder" is included as a global.

      My code is: bodder = string( "I can't get there until " & getAt(x,y) & ". You may have to ask a co-worker for a ride, " \

      "or catch the next commuter train.")

       

      Thanks in advance.
