stringnis a string of characters to be typed into the session. This field is case sensitive. Enclose stringn in double quotation marks ("") if it contains embedded spaces or commas. If a double quote (") needs to be included in stringn enter two double quotes (""). The two double quotes will be replaced by a single double quote when the string is typed. Any of the stringn parameters may be variables. If stringn is a variable the text associated with the variable is substituted and typed into the session at the current cursor location.


The type command enters the string into a session at the current cursor location.  If multiple stringn parameters are specified they are concatenated and typed into the session.
