issue with the query output in unix

I am running a query with contains blank spaces in between in the output. But when I open and read the file in UNIX i am not able to cursor the balnk spaces instead it is moving like tabs. Please help

suppose my query -

Code:
 
Select '  '||text from tab1;

the cursor should move to 1st and 2nd blank space but it is directly moving to text field trating the blank space as tabs.

Are you sure it is actually blank space?

If you are using vim, do ":l" to see the line,

Code:
                Leading spaces
                Leading tabs
:.,.+1l

                Leading spaces$
^I^ILeading tabs$
