You'll have to edit that post to include CODE tags or we can't see the formatting you are trying to achieve.

In the meantime, printf might do what you need.

Could not follow what logic is being used to get the desired output. It would help us if you explain the logic a bit...

Seriously, just use CODE tags (ie [ C O D E ] stuff to type [/CODE] - without the spaces in [ c o d e ] though).
I'm also as confused as rakeshawasthi as to what logic is required here sorry Smilie

Take a bit of time, and try and spell it out very clearly what you are after, format it cleanly using the CODE tags (there's help on using them on the forum here), and you should find a much more helpful audience Smilie In the long run it always saves time to take a little longer on that first post as the final answer is much quicker to arrive.
