    Default Serial string problem with characters

    I am having problems when I compile my program with a serial string using characters, I get an error. See below

    DIM Serstring AS BYTE
    STR Serstring = "NORTH" Error message. Assignment variable must be a Byte array

    I see this is published in the manual, so I am not sure why it doesn't Work.

    Not exacley sure what you're trying to do but perhaps
    Dim Serstring[7] As Byte
    StrN Serstring = "NORTH"
    What page of the manual?

    You've made it a byte and not a string, that's why you get the error.

    Code:
    Dim Serstring as String * 5
