Re: aligment

Use the appropriate function:

Left()

Right()

 

 

If using a report procedure you may need to specify it in the report somehow. Depends on the report and destination most likely.

I'm not using any proc here. I just want the finaldate variable values to be aligned to the right in my dataset itself.

And that's exactly what Reeza was providing to you.  Experiment with the functions and you'll see.
