how to i fix this?

i have a variable 'IPAddress' which is a string which i would like to use as follows:

   WinExec('mstsc /v ' + IPAddress + ' /f',sw_ShowNormal);

but i get the following error ---> Incompatible types: 'string' and 'PAnsiChar'.

I think i need to use a pointer or typecast but i think i feel asleep in the lecture at that stage!

many thanks
