adding 2 variables into 1 variable

Can anyone help me add two variables together, I am relatively new to autoit so I am sorry in advance for a lack of information.

$Call1+$Click1 = $EndValue1

I do this and I get an error message saying that a "=" is expected instead.

Just know that in programming, when you want to set a value to something it is 

Hello = X + X

The "=" can be refered to EQUAL TO most of the time.

The "=" can be refered to EQUAL TO most of the time.

The "=" can be refered to ASSIGN TO most of the time.
Refered to 'equal to' when used as a comparison operator (test in a condition)

I think it depends on the type of variables. For integers as others have already suggested:

$EndValue1 = $Investment1+$Profit1

But for string variables you should use the following:

$EndValue1 = $Investment1 & $Profit1

Factfinder, your second example isn't adding the two together, it's concatenating them into one longer string. Not the same thing.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

BrewManNH, you are right about the semantic precision. I wasn't sure about the type of variables the OP is talking abut and if "adding" was used instead of concatenating two string variables. I think in C++ both adding (like in case of integer variables) and concatenating is done the same way:

$totalvar=$var1+$va2

I just wanted to mention the difference in Autoit.
