Is there any command to align the data from right to left.

for ex:
Below imagine Zeros as spaces as this is editor not supporting blank spaces
Sno ID data

1 1234 1111111111111
2 0234 2222222222222
3 0021 3333333333333
4 0456 4444444444444

Now in the final output the ID should aligned to left

SNo ID Data

1 1234 11111111111111
2 2340 22222222222222
3 2100 33333333333333
4 4560 44444444444444

Please let me know if is there any command

HI Naveen,

I assume this data you are talking about is in a dataset.

It is a rule that NUMERIC fields are right aligned and all other types of fields are left aligned.

I dont think there is such command to make numerical fields aligned to left. Instead what can be done is you make the field as alphanumeric, even though it contains numeric value.

Correct me if I am wrong.
