First and foremost, strings are usually enclosed in either single or double quotes

A couple of examples

$sVar = "This is a string."

$sVar = "This is a string that contains the digits 1234. These digits are still strings although they appear to be numbers"

$sVar = "This is a string that 'contains' single quotes so the string is encased in double quotes."

$sVar = 'This is a string that "contains" double quotes so the string is encased in single quotes.'

A string is concatenated using one of 2 methods

$svar = "This is part of a string "

$sVar = $sVar & "and this is the rest of the string."


$sVar = "This is part of a string "

$sVar &= "and this is the rest of the string."

In other words, if you were to type a letter to someone, everything you typed could be enclosed in quotes and handled as a string in AutoIt.
