Used to force string concatenation of two expressions.
result = expression1 & expression2

The & operator syntax has these parts:

Part Description
result Any variable.
expression1 Any expression.
expression2 Any expression.

Whenever an expression is not a string, it is converted to a String subtype. If both expressions are Null, result is also Null. However, if only one expression is Null, that expression is treated as a zero-length string ("") when concatenated with the other expression. Any expression that is Empty is also treated as a zero-length string.
