Use printf for the basic formatting, eg somthing like this:

Code:
DID=TestID
DDATE=$(date +%Y-%m%d)
DTASK1="Testing"
DRESULT1=OK
DTIME1=$(date +%T)
printf "XYZ test results\n"
printf "\n"
printf "ID: %-20sDate: %s\n" $DID $DDATE
printf "%s\n" "-------------------------------------------------"
printf "|%-14s| %-10s| %-10s |\n" Task Result Time
printf "%s\n" "-------------------------------------------------"
printf "|%-14s| %-10s| %-10s |\n" "$DTASK1" "$RESULT1" "$DTIME1"
printf "%s\n" "-------------------------------------------------"
printf "\n"
printf "AD No: %-20sGenerated Date: %s\n" ADN001 "$(date +%m-%d-%Y)"
