    The Tab positions you specify is in distance concept.

    Like you enter the tabs as 1,3,7 and say this is in inches..

    This means there are 3 tab positions..One at 1 inch from the Left End,

    Second at 3 inches from left and this way the final tab is at 7 Inches from left.

    See this is useless if you enter data between longer than the gap...

    So A ,, B ,, C will get U character A at 1 inch from Left, B at 3 inches from left and c after 7 inches from Left

    Hope u understand this point.Now with this in mind try ...

    <b>Do Reward some points if this adds anything to ur understanding</b>

    You can ask any further clarifications also.

    Regards,
