Crystal Reports 10 - Export to TEXT with Delimited Space Format



I am new to Crystal reports, sorry if this is a really basic question. I am trying to create a report which I can export to a TXT file. The TXT file format will be delimted space (size 500 characters). I would like to know how I can use Crystal reports to fix the size of the fields.

For example field 1 is 22 characters, field 2 starts directly after field 1 and is 9 characters (9 spaces), field 3 is then 7 characters so an example of the output I need is:

1111111111111111111111 2222222

I will need to use a mixture of TEXT fields and database fields to create the report. Thefore is it possible to specify the length of a text file i.e. TEXT1 = 22?

I am new to Crystal so I hope there is a simple solution without the use of coding
