LWE10020 : Cannot echo a string literal with quotation marks in vbscript

Symptom:

Your echos on the screen have no quotation marks around the string

Cause:

This is by design. You have to use a special excape sequence to have this functionality

Solution:

VBScript uses double quotes and the & operator to concatenate strings. e.g.:

str = "This is a string"
str = "this is a longer" & " string"

If you want to have quotation around the string like "string with quotation" to a variable you can use 2 double quotes.

str = """hello with quotes"""  'return "hello"

You can alos use the chr(34) character

str = chr(34) & " this is between quotes to! " & chr(34)
