Script Question, How do I concatenate two fields

Hi Guys

I am doing an import from excel
Normally I would use :
doc.NameAH = result.GetValue( "NameAH" )

However in this case the excell spreadsheet contains First Name Last Name

I would like to concatenate those into one field at import
Can this be done;

Wouldn't it be like this

firstName = result.GetValue( "NameAH" )
lastName = result.GetValue( "LastNameAH" )
doc.NameAH = lastName + "," + firstName

Or rather,

firstName = result.GetValue( "NameAH" )
lastName = result.GetValue( "LastNameAH" )
doc.NameAH = firstName + " " + lastName

Or

doc.NameAH = firstName & " " & lastName

I take it you are using LotusScript to access Excel via OLE Automation?

No, Hemanth, you deserved much of the points.  I corrected the order, that's all.  You had "ln, fn" where James wanted "fn ln".  if James had asked, I would have suggested 130 to you, 120 to me.
