    repeat characters

    Hi everyone .....
    I need to do this for proper formatting of output to a textfile.

    Lets say I have a project with just 1 textbox. What I need to have occour is to take the Len of text1 and subtract that from 20. Then I need to take that sum and print on the form ...
    "A" then Chr(32) repeating the sum of the above calculation .. then "C"

    So that if Len(text1) = 15 I would get
    A C

    Is it possible to do this ?

    Code:
    if Len(text1.text) <= 20 then form1.print "A" & Space(20-Len(text1.text)) & "C"
    hope it helps
