Need help,  designing simple paradox report .  In example.   2 fields

field 1           Field 2  values

1                          0                           |

2                       2.4                           |

3                       1.8                           |

4                        6.0                           |

How do I define the calculated field in my report so it appears like below in report.   I have the field right justified, but cannot figure how to create the space between the far right side of the field and the number.  Where the space is equal to the value in field 2.  so it give a relationship of the numbers in field 2,  to the end of the field.

field 1                          field 2

1                                   1>|

2                             2>      |

3                                 3>  |

4                        4>            |

any idea,

thanks

Paul

Hi Paul

You are going to need to convert the numerical data to a string and append spaces to the right side of the string using the fill function.  If you want to convert the numerical field values into positional values you will probably have to resort to opal.
