Post Updating string text

I have an update function that updates the text, but it places it on top of the existing text is there a way to modify it.
Because there is ModifyText command.

example of what i have

Code:
function Update()
local Title = f:CreateFontString(nil, "OVERLAY", "GameFontNormal")
Title:SetPoint("Center",0,166)
Title:SetText("Title")
end

Lua Code:
  1. local Title = f:CreateFontString(nil, "OVERLAY", "GameFontNormal")
  2. Title:SetPoint("Center",0,166)
  3.  
  4. local function Update()
  5. Title:SetText("Title")
  6. end

Your function should be local. And you dont need to create a new fontstring on every update.
With settext you can modify it.
