I'm copying some query statements from a legacy VB app to a C# app. I am not familiar with VB, although looking at it makes me want a VB (Victoria Bitter). I have come across queries constructed like this:
*SELECT dp_duckbill_accounts.platypus_no AS duckbill, t_accounts.name AS Name " & _
"FROM t_accounts INNER JOIN dp_duckbill_accounts ON t_accounts.account_no = dp_duckbill_accounts.account_no " & _
"ORDER BY dp_duckbill_accounts.platypus_no*
The underscore is the line continuation character. It allows the concatenation to include a different line. Like so:
x = "Hello " & "World" x = "Hello " & _ "World" 'this won't compile (pre vb.net 2010, anyway) x = "Hello " & "World"
