Simple??? Want "INSERT" function to return blank space after a field, how?

Am I just having a brain fart? I have a situation where I have a field that needs to return just one space, or a value that has a space before and after it.


In the text ==> I am<field>going to the office. <-- notice no space between am, <field> and going

I want it to say if FALSE, then "I am *not* going to the office."
If true, then "I am going to the office."

If true, I'm simply RETURN(""); <-- This returns a blank space

If FALSE, I have tried:

RETURN(" " & ret & " ");

This returns "I am notgoing to the office". <-- Notice no blank space after "not"?

I've tried

ret2=(" " & ret);
RETURN(Insert(ret2, 3, " "));

Still the same result. What's strange is, if I do a RETURN(Insert(ret2, *2*, " "));, then it returns "I am no tgoing to the office" <-- Notice the space between the "o" and the "t"?
