Concatenating strings in a container operation

How do I concatenate two strings in a container operation? I'm trying to concatenate the workflow initiator and '@company.com' into a variable to build an email address. If I can't do the concatenation in the container operation, where else can I do it?

I have two questions:
1. How do I concatenate two strings in a container operation? I'm trying to concatenate the workflow initiator and '@company.com' into a variable to build an email address. If I can't do the concatenation in the container operation, where else can I do it?

2. How do I build a URL within a task description? When I place two expressions beside each other to build the URL in the task description, the URL shows up with a '<BR>' and %20 between the two strings that make up the URL. (Send mail (Selfitem.SendTaskDescription) step)

Example:
/* <a href="&REJ_URL&&DOC&">here</a>
Result:
http://www.test.tkr/PSCDWGREQ/DRV_REJCOM.ASP?NO=<br>%20%20%20%20%200000000000000010000010868
Two possible approaches here.

* You could write a generic method which you pass the two strings in and it returns a concatenation of the two. Keep the method generic in case the requirement comes up again for another workflow/scenario.
* I would instantiate the Object USR01 based on the Workflow Initiator and then retrieve the e-mail address from the User Master Record via an attribute (ADR6- SMTP_ADDR).
