Resolution
First, you have to use Memory Bytes (%MBi) for any text entry.
Below is a example of how to enter text into a string. For %MB0 the 0 is the starting location and :20 is how many bytes you are using for this string.


Keep in mind that:
%MB0 and %MB1 use the same memory location as %MW0,
%MB2 and %MB3 use the same memory location as %MW1,
%MB4 and %MB5 use the same memory location as %MW2,
and so on.

Remember these are Bytes and it takes 2 Bytes( %MB's ) to make a Word (%MW's)
