How to concatenate string variable consist of words separated by spaces

Hi Java Experts,

I need to concatenate a string variable to form a full path of a new file to be referenced by later reads but failed to form the complete path due to multiple words with space in the string variable. Below is the code snippet which the full path has failed to materialize:



As a result, could someone advice me on how to concatenate multiple strings where the variable string such as country is made up of more than one word separated by space. It is necessary to use double quotes in general to surround them such as the following example so the operating system knows how to put the full path together:

“C:\United States of America\sports.txt”

I am running JDK 7 on Windows XP & 7 platform.

Your assistance would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Jack

Is that your actual code ? The quotes look like the ones you get when you edit using a word processor rather than a text editor. Java doesn't like those quotes.
Replace them with normal quotes like this

and see if that fixes your problem.

Also your variable on line 1 is called county, but on lines 3 and 8 you are using a variable called country.
It's always best if you post the actual code you are using. As this code won't even compile, you couldn't have got the errors from it that you say you did.
