Pads out a string to the right.


string PADRIGHT(string value, int num)
string PADRight(string value, string character, int num)


Object Data Type Description
value String The string to pad out.
character String The character to use to pad out the string.
num Integer The number which corresponds to the length of the string once padding is complete.


To fulfil the character length required for a specific field, you can use PADRIGHT to increase the number of characters with a specified string character:

PADRIGHT("Simego","*", 8)

Which would return "Simego**".

NB: If you do not enter a string character to PAD with, the default is a space e.g:

PADRIGHT("Simego", 10)

Will return "Simego    ".
