i have a char field with length = 30

in this field there is a 4 characters long value

i have to write this field in a file but with the 26 leading spaces ahead.

basically, i have XXXX and i would like to have ______________XXXX

i tried to concatenate spaces but it does not work.

Try the following :

shift field right deleting trailing space

This should work.

Please reward points if this helps.
