Thanks for the reminder, Ken.  Usually I am merging variables in the string
(like SQL) so I have gotten into the merge syntax habit since it is very
compact and easy to organize long strings.

 put  merge("" & \
        "fldrC`=[[currFldrOrig]]`[[ansRowid]]"  &  \
        "pathhidC`=[[ansRowid]][[zUsr]][[cdid]]" & \
        "datemodC`=[[the short date]]" & \
        "timemodC`=[[the long time]]" & \
        "cmtC`=[[noww]]}new folder created" & \
        "parentidF`=[[parentid]]" & \
        "")  into columnValueList

then my handler converts this to the correct UPDATE SQL syntax
