    Unanswered: Inserting chars

    Does anyone know
    what happens to the
    rest of the character string
    if you insert 3 charcters into
    a, for example, 6 character field ??

    Do they become blanks (ascii hex 20) or what?

    Thanks in advance

    absolutely right ...


    You can use the HEX function to see this

    HEX(charcol)
