    Default Assigning a string variable to another string variable

    I'm so close I can smell it.

    I'm using this to get my data:
    Code:
    DAT VAR byte[255]
    UNIT1 VAR byte[255]
    UNIT2 VAR byte[255]
    UNIT3 VAR byte[255]
    CMD VAR BYTE
    
    HSERIN 1, COMPLETE_RX_TRANSFER,[wait ("&"),dec2 CMD, STR DAT\255\"#"]

    This works well. The problem is, I want to filter the DAT data and then assign different string variables for the DAT. It looks like this:
    Code:
    SELECT CASE CMD
        CASE 80 
            UNIT1=DAT
            
        CASE 81 
            UNIT2=DAT
        CASE 83 
            UNIT3=DAT
    END SELECT

    The problem is that when I go to display the newly assigned variables I only get the first character. I've tried UNIT1=DAT\255 and that returns an error. What am I missing? I know I can just filter it with HSERIN but I thought it would make the program quicker if I used one HSERIN statement and then used select case to sort the data.

    Hi,
    I don't quite understand why you need to do what you're trying to do, it seems like a waste of RAM to have multiple copies of the same data instead of just acting on the data stored in the DAT array. But anyway, one way would be like
    Code:
    i VAR BYTE
    For i = 0 to 254
       UNIT1[i] = DAT[i]
    NEXT
    /Henrik.

    I'm not quite sure what I'm doing but your technique worked well.

    Thanks.
