What is String?
A commonly-used data type, strings are used to represent text rather than numbers. A string is made of a group of characters which can include, text, spaces, numbers, and symbols. Even numbers can be treated as strings if the correct syntax is used. Typically, strings are enclosed in double quotes to distinguish it from variables. Thus Data1 will be treated as a variable, while “Data1” will be treated as a string.
