Simple string assignment problem

Banging my head against the wall on the following simple character string assignment problem:

 

char user_text[6];

 

// somewhere else in code:

user_text[] = {"text"};

 

Compiler throws up alarm on C1830: Modifiable lvalue expected.

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

I don't want to include string support as I can't support the burden size-wise.

 

Appreciate any help, I'm sure it is something silly and simple.

 

Thanks,

Aaron
