I’ have a Static Text that says this:

SERIE FOLIO SUBTOTAL I. V. A. TOTAL ANTICIPO FONDO DE GARANTA

And after this I made a recordset and get the data of it adding rows for each “column”.

I said “Column” because aren’t real columns. These data must be in one column of a Listbox.

So I planned to add “X” number of spaces between Word 1 and Word 2 and so on.

Example.

The first Row said: B A152669

The second Row said: NORMAL B589C

The space necessary to get aligned Folio column on both rows are:

First Column: 24 spaces

Second Column: 12 Spaces

I count the length of both Strings using LEN, and counting spaces before to start “FOLIO” text. is “26”.

So I do this:

```
SerieLength = 26- (rsDetalleObra.IdxField(1).StringValue.DefineEncoding(Encodings.UTF8).UpperCase().ReplaceAll("&", "&&").Len *2)
```

As you can see I multiply by TWO the length of the String, because I noticed that UPPERCASE characters occupies two places.

Once got the Value of SerieLength I use a Method to add as many spaces as I need to add:

```
Function Space (n as Integer) As String
static sp as string = " "
while len(sp)< n
sp = sp + sp
wend
return left(sp, n)
End Function
```

And Finally I do this:

Text1+Space(SerieLength)+Text2

But not works as I wanted, I ran a Messagebox to SerieLength and I discovered that when then “NORMAL” text occurs I got 14 spaces, instead of 12.

Am I omitting something?
