if this command :- Dim pscommand As Command = New Command("MailboxReport -SAID" & r & "-TXTPATH" & q)

is represented into vb like this : - "MailboxReport -SAID11364-TXTPATHC:\WHATEVER".  

How can I spave the command correctly with spaces to produce this result  : -

"MailboxReport -SAID 11364 -TXTPATH C:\WHATEVER".

Maybe

Dim pscommand As Command = New Command("MailboxReport -SAID " & r & " -TXTPATH " & q)

The & will put the strings together directly.  If you want spaces then just add them into the strings.

like this example ?(Sorry for the basic question, I'm relearning since my stroke)

Dim q As String = physicalFolder.ToString
Dim r As String = TextBox1.Text
Dim firstString As String
Dim secondString As String
Dim startString As String
firstString = "-SAID"
secondString = "-TXTPATH"
firstString = firstString & " "
secondString = secondString & " "
firstString = firstString & r
secondString = secondString & q
firstString = firstString & " "
startString =”MailboxReport”
startString=startString & “ “
Dim pipe As Pipeline = rs.CreatePipeline()
Dim pscommand As Command = New Command(startString &  firstString  &  secondString)
pipe.Commands.Add(pscommand)
pipe.Invoke()

Either like that, or even better and shorter like Rgonzo1971's suggestion.

Also instead of " " you could use chr(32), which represents a space character.
