first u need to define the pargraph format and the u can give tab spaces lenth in the tabs fields.

suppose ur window size is 100 ch and u have 3 fields to be displayed equally in the window.then u need to define the first tab as 33 ch and next is 66 ch.

and then give like this,

p1 field1,,field2,,field3.

if u specify left justified ur result will be written from left to right and vice versa.

reward me if helpful.

You can make use of Tabs in the following way:

1. Go to paragraph format and choose the corresponding paragraph format (eg HR) related to the field to be displayed.

2. Go to 'Tabs' tab and give the tab position :

for eg : number tab position alignment

1 5.00 CM LEFT

2 10.00 CM LEFT

2. Go to the text editor of that particular window in which the field(eg : v_text1 v_text2 ) is used.

2. then write in text editor in the following way :

HR ,,v_text1,, v_text2

So, your v_text 1 will appear after 5 cm from the left hand side and v_text2 will be displayed after 10cm from left hand side..
