Hi!  I am trying to insert a string into another string, and cannot figure out the correct syntax.  The code here does not work.  Please show me a work around.
Thanks!

public void Say(int iColumn, string s)
           {
            strData.Substring(iColumn,s.Length ) = s;
           }

    string temp = "";
    temp = strData.Substring(0, iColumn) + s + strData.Substring(iColumn);
    MessageBox.Show(temp.ToString());
    strData = temp;
}

Why not just do?...
public void Say(int iColumn, string s)
{
    strData = strData.Insert(iColumn, s);
}

Sheryl,

strData = strData.Insert(iColumn, s);

is better solution. You may need to use like

strData = strData.Insert(iColumn + 1, s);

because the first character index in your string starts from 0.
