The command would be:
x = FILL(".",4).

Hello all..

I'm trying to find the function in 4GL analagous to the visual basic String
Function, where String( ".", 4) returns "...."

I know the progress function substring(".........................", 1, 4)
will return the results i need, but I need this function to execute as
quickly as possible, as it will be performed on a large number of records.

Is there such a function? I tried looking in the LangRef already.

Thanks in advance,

Thaddeus
