# SET TEXTMERGE DELIMITERS Command

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies the text-merge delimiters.

```SET TEXTMERGE DELIMITERS [TO cLeftDelimiter [, cRightDelimiter]]
```

#### Parameters

TO cLeftDelimiter [, cRightDelimiter]
Specifies the delimiters. If you specify only one delimiter with cLeftDelimiter, both the left and right delimiters are set to cLeftDelimiter. If you specify both delimiters with cLeftDelimiter and cRightDelimiter, the left delimiter is set to cLeftDelimiter and the right delimiter is set to cRightDelimiter.

#### Remarks

With SET TEXTMERGE DELIMITERS, you can specify a set of text-merge delimiters other than the default delimiters, which are double angle brackets (<< and >>). The current delimiters can be displayed with DISPLAY STATUS.

If you issue SET TEXTMERGE DELIMITERS without any additional arguments, the default delimiters are restored.
